In the years since her marriage to Prince William, Kate Middleton could be relied on for one thing: always wearing the same LK Bennett Sledge pump shoe. In black or nude, she’s worn them for everything from presiding over royal events to the polo to the pool (we can’t verify that last one, but we wouldn’t be surprised).
