The Duchess of Cambridge wisely slipped on a pair of worn-in boots to go hiking in Bhutan.

On Friday 15 April, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge embarked on the six hour trek up to Tiger's Nest, a scared site and temple, as part of their week long tour of India and Bhutan. 

The Duchess turned to one of her long-standing favourite shoe designers Penelope Chilvers to ensure her feet remained comfy during the trip.
