The Duchess of Cambridge–known over here as Kate Middleton, mainly–didn’t spend yesterday like a lot of people (wearing those obnoxious green martian antennae and screaming through their vomit in public to the disgust and ire of rational humans everywhere). No, instead she attended a very staid-looking St Patrick’s Day parade at the Aldershot Barracks in Aldershot, England.
Middleton wore a festive green Emilia Wickstead frock coat, recycled from the same event the year before (¡qué escándalo!). The currently pregnant Duchess ditched last year’s waist-nipping belt, however.
Anyway, while performing various duties and flashing her winning smile, the unthinkable happened:
The Duchess got her heel caught in a rain-slicked grate, almost tripped, and daintily knelt down to free herself, with a little help from husband William.
We can’t imagine what Kate would do without her trusty sensible pumps, either.
Then she got to hang out with a cool dog:
