Kate Middleton wears item she’s owned for at least 15 years as she returns to work after maternity leave

by pregnancy journalist

Kate Middleton returned to work today after a five month maternity leave break with little Prince Louis.

The duchess looked casual yet glamorous as she arrived at Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden at Paddington Recreation Ground in west London.

Showing off a lovely tan, Kate was dressed down in tight khaki brown trousers and a green waterproof jacket.

But another part of her outfit caught fashion lovers attention – as they’ve been a key part of her wardrobe for more than a decade.

We recognise those boots!

Penelope Chilvers books are made of Spanish vegetable-dyed leather and are fully leather-lined with a rubber sole – making them the perfect shoes for a day with nature.

Kate was first photographed in them in the grounds of Blenheim Palace back in 2004.

When she arrived at the school, which gives inner city children the change to learn about nature, she was greeted by a group of excited kids who gave her a bunch of flowers.

They then gathered around her and hugged her legs.

Kate has been on maternity leave since April when she welcomed her third child Prince Louis.

However we’ve seen her out and about at several occasions since, including brother-in-law Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle back in May.

Most recently we saw Kate at Louis’s christening, when she was joined by Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte and close friends and family for the celebrations.
