For footwear, Kate went with a longtime favorite: Penelope Chilvers long-tasseled boots.

The boots are made of vegetable-dyed leather, with a scalloped accent at the zip panel and a leather tassel on the zip pull. The style is lined with a Goodyear Welted Commando rubber sole, perfect for walking on uneven terrain, and it is made by hand. Those hoping to imitate the duchess’s look can shop for the boots on Penelopechilvers.com, where they retail for 475 pounds ($617).

Watch on FN

Royal watchers are likely familiar with the Chilvers boots because they have made many appearances in Kate’s wardrobe over the years. In fact, the style predates her time as a duchess since the mom of three has owned the boots for 15 years.

“The Duchess of Cambridge has come to us for country boots, to be out in the weather, a walking boot essentially. The British do country with a certain studied look that follows the not-too-new unspoken rule,” Chilvers explained to FN in 2016. “Normally she would wear these boots for private times, I imagine, for walks in Norfolk and Scotland.”
