Kate Middleton Does Casual Dressing in Northern Ireland in Skinny Jeans + Boots She’s Owned for 15 Years

Kate Middleton looked stylish in casualwear, including a pair of her favorite boots, while out and about in Northern Ireland today.

The Duchess of Cambridge was clad in an olive jacket, dark skinny jeans and a pair of Penelope Chilvers’ long tasseled boots.

During her visit to the farm, HRH will met with local representatives of Early Years and families who have benefitted from the work of the charity. Young children from two local nurseries were also present. The Duchess received a guided tour of the facility, meeting with the owners and staff of the family-run farm and viewed various animals during her walkabout.

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 silhouette 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’ look can shop for the boots on Penelopechilvers.com, where they retail for 475 pounds ($617).

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 buzzy footwear actually predates Kate’s time as a duchess since she’s owned them 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.”
