In addition to Kate, sister Pippa and mother Carole Middleton both wear French Sole, and Princess Diana once bought 12 pair of flat shoes designed by the company’s owner Jane Winkworth.  The beautiful shoes are ooze quality, each pair made in the company’s own Spanish factory.  

Kate often wears her flats during her ‘down time’, you’ll often see her wear the Henriettas during impromptu shopping trips or supermarket visits.
