Kate Middleton Wears Suede Pumps To Queen’s Garden Party

Kate Middleton stepped out again on Tuesday, wearing nude suede pumps and a recycled Alexander McQueen skirt suit for Queen Elizabeth’s annual garden party.

The young royal, who is known for wearing outfits and shoes many times, wore the same McQueen two-piece suit she wore to Prince George’s christening in 2013. She attended the party with Prince William and other members of the royal family.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who wore L.K. Bennett nude pumps on Monday for the Chelsea Flower show, has been out and about many times during the past few weeks. She wore Rupert Sanderson for a sailing celebration on Friday and wore the same “Malory” navy suede pumps last Monday — with a graphic Banana Republic skirt — to the Heads Together event.

On Tuesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the first of three garden parties at Buckingham Palace that Queen Elizabeth hosts each year so she can meet and chat with members of the public.

Some 8,000 guests, most of them invited in recognition of their public service, gathered in the vast gardens of the monarch’s London residence.

The royal couple joined the monarch on the palace terrace as band played “God Save the Queen” and later mingled with guests. It was the duchess’ fourth garden party and the duke’s first.
