Kate Middleton has a trusty collection of nude pumps that she rotates for public appearances, but on Thursday, she brought out a pair we haven’t seen her wear in some time.
On a royal visit to Luxembourg, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a powder blue Emilia Wickstead coat with L.K. Bennett’s Fern pumps.
Middleton is in Luxembourg — sans husband Prince William — to commemorate the 1867 Treaty of London and will attend several events celebrating the cultural ties between the U.K. and Luxembourg.
Middleton met Luxembourg’s Grand Duchess Stephanie, who accompanied her to the Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art to see an exhibit by British artists Sir Tony Cragg and Darren Almond. Stephanie looked striking in her outfit as well, opting for a bright red wrap coat with ruffle detail and camel-colored suede pumps.
Middleton’s pumps are currently available online and retail for $345. They feature a leather upper and 4-inch heel.

Middleton also went to a cycling-themed festival, ahead of this summer’s Tour de France, which passes through Luxembourg. Also on the agenda is a visit to the Luxembourg City Museum and a reception with Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria-Teresa of Luxembourg at the Grand Ducal Palace.
On Saturday, back in London, Middleton, William and Prince Harry will host a tea party at Buckingham Palace to honor the children of those who have died serving in the armed forces. The following weekend, the Middleton family will celebrate the wedding of Kate’s younger sister, Pippa, who is set to marry fiancé James Matthews on May 20.
