Kate Middleton Removed Her Shoes But Kept Her Stockings on at a Mosque

For their second official engagement of the day today, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Badshahi Mosque in Lahore, Pakistan’s capital city.

Kate Middleton swapped her first outfit of the day, a white “shalwar kameez” of tunic and loose trousers, for another, this time a Maheen Khan ensemble in a vibrant jade.

Like yesterday’s traditional embroidered cloak and feathered hat, this outfit, too, bears more than a passing resemblance to one worn by Princess Diana when she visited the country in 1991. Middleton’s version had more gold embellishments than Princes Di’s. But there was one more important distinction.

Kate Middleton was in a mosque, and even though she and Prince William were participating in an interfaith meeting, she still removed her shoes out of respect.

But she didn’t remove her tan-colored stockings, which attracted some attention.

The royal couple still have a busy schedule today. They are due to attend a cricket showcase at the National Academy, where they will meet some well-known international cricketers and are likely have a go at the game themselves. Kate may or may not wear shoes. Or stockings.
