The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have embarked on an eight-day royal tour of the Caribbean, which will include stops in Belize, Jamaica, and the Bahamas. On Sunday, Prince William and Kate Middleton paid a visit to the small Belizean town of Hopkins. For the excursion, Middleton wore a royal blue dress by Tory Burch, which echoed the colors of Belize's flag.
For a walk on the beach to meet with marine conservationists, Middleton changed out of her platform wedges into espadrille flats by Stella McCartney. We rarely see the duchess wearing flats (that aren't sneakers), so her shoe choice immediately piqued my interest. As it happens, another infamous heel lover, Anna Wintour, also wears white espadrille flats when she wants a break from stilettos. Scroll down to see how both women style the same trend, and see every outfit from Kate Middleton's new royal tour.
