Kate Middleton’s Simple Style Trick Makes Her Legs Look Super-Long

It’s all in the shoes.

That’s what Kate Middleton’s latest ensemble set out to prove today during the royal’s visit to the Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre in London, where she was photographed in high-waisted black trousers paired with pumps in the same dark shade — giving her the illusion of mile-long legs.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s wide-leg pants effortlessly blended into her classic shoes, which featured a pointed toe and comfortable block heel.

The color consistency also allowed her regal purple Gucci blouse — with its pussy-bow neckline, billowy sleeves and silk-satin material — to take center stage. She teamed the outfit with Aspinal of London’s signature Mayfair bag in a lilac finish.

According to Kensington Palace, Middleton was in attendance at the children’s center to learn about the Lambeth Early Action Partnership parenting program. She also took time to bond with a group of toddlers and their parents during a session called Together Time.

The duchess is mother to three children: Prince George, who is 5 years old; Princess Charlotte at 3; and Prince Louis, who turns 1 next month.

Her appearance comes a day after making headlines for her bold red military-style coat and matching fascinator worn at the Commonwealth Day service in London’s Westminster Abbey. She toned down the vibrant look with a pair of gray suede pointed pumps by Emmy London.
