Duchess Kate was accompanying the Queen on a trip to Leicester's De Montfort University as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations where she examined shoe designs by six of the university's students.

Becka Hunt saw off the competition thanks to a blue and white shoe boot inspired by the colours of Kate's famous engagement ring. Speaking about her design before the judging, she said: "[It] is inspired by 19th century fashions and based around the things Kate wears, her engagement ring and her style."

Upon being informed of the Duchess's choice, Becka said:

"I'm hoping this will get my name out there. I'm in shock still - it means everything and it is a massive thing for my career."

Kate and the Queen also took in a student fashion show as part of the visit and we must say, we've never seen the Queen looking so excited!
