The Duchess of Cambridge may be a royal, but when it comes to recycling her wardrobe, she's really just like the rest of us. And while Duchess Kate has re-worn ensembles on numerous occasions, there's one notable accessory that's been in her rotation for almost 20 years: a pair of boots.
Retailing for $695, the Long Tassel Boot by Penelope Chilvers, is handmade of vegetable-dyed leather with a rubber sole. And, as Kate has proved, the boots are versatile enough to wear for every type of occasion.
For her trip to the family-run Manor Farm in County Durham with Prince William, Kate sported her go-to boots with a fair isle sweater and utility jacket to play around with the farm's sheep and try her hand at tractor driving.
She donned a similar look in 2020 for another rural retreat when the Cambridges visited the Teagasc Research Farm in Ireland.
For her first post-maternity leave appearance after giving birth to Prince Louis in 2018, she also chose this comfy pair:
In late November 2017, the Duchess was spotted in her classic boots while visiting an elementary school:
And in September 2016, Kate's trusty boots made an appearance during the royal tour in Canada, when the royals were touring the Great Bear Rainforest:
Earlier that year, the Duchess also wore her favorite footwear while on the royal tour of India and Bhutan.
One of the earliest appearances of these timeless boots was all the way back in 2005, when Kate wore them to the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park in England:
But in 2004, Kate debuted the boots for the first time while posing for photographers at the Game Fair at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.
