Everyone will have their own preference when it comes to boot brands to invest in, but when it comes to the most practical boot styles, wellington boots are a classic for a reason and we all want the best wellies out there. With the colder weather and rain here for a while longer, wellies are many people’s go-to footwear – and the Princess of Wales is a fan too.

What wellies does Kate Middleton wear?

Bypassing the often-seen best black boots available, Kate Middleton’s wellies are green Le Chameau Vierzonord Neoprene Boots. Priced at £200, these sturdy wet weather staples have a distinctive adjustable waterproof gusset to help these fit perfectly to your leg. If that doesn’t sound practical enough, they’re also lined to help provide added warmth and comfort. 

Kate’s wellies are crafted from durable chamolux rubber which is also subtle, so it’s not surprising that the Princess of Wales has been seen wearing them to outdoor-based engagements in the past. The dual density sole is another brilliant feature of these gorgeous wellies as they help enhance the traction and performance of the boots which are, after all, designed for outdoor wear in wet conditions.

If you’ve been asking yourself 'What wellies does Kate Middleton wear?', the answer might just have tempted you to invest in a pair of these gorgeous yet durable boots for yourself. The £200 price tag is on the luxury side for wellies, but isn’t that much beyond the likes of other well-known high-end brands, like Hunter. Le Chameau boots also come with a two-year warranty from the original purchase date, as long as you keep your proof of purchase.

As well as being very sturdy, the adjustable nature of them also makes them easy-to-wear with everything from the warmest leggings and your best winter coats to jeans and a roll neck, like Kate’s previously styled hers with. They are stylish as well as practical, and whilst the Princess of Wales is a fan of the iconic green shade, this particular style also comes in Chameau Green and Dark Brown, depending on your preference. 

Kate’s wellies are described by Le Chameau as being “comfortable in all conditions” and are hand-crafted, with careful testing on each pair to ensure they’re 100% waterproof. This is something we could all do with in our lives during the winter months especially, when rainy and cold conditions combine to make venturing outdoors that bit more challenging.

If you’re not quite enamoured enough with the Le Chameau wellies to invest in such luxurious wellies, however, there are also plenty of options available for much more affordable green wellies. Whilst many of them don’t have the same adjustable detail, the khaki green colour is very similar and the rubber material makes them brilliant alternatives for keeping you dry.

The Princess of Wales has worn her wellies in the snow, rain and also milder weather over the years with a variety of layering pieces. In June 2012, she was photographed wearing them as she visited an “Expanding Horizons” Primary School camp. That month she also wore them when she went to watch The Golden Metropolitan Polo Club Charity Cup polo match.

Kate’s wellies made another appearance in 2013 when she visited the Great Tower Scout camp in March in the snow. On this occasion she wore them with jeans and a matching khaki jacket though in June 2012, she chose to pair them with a waxed gilet and jeans.
