Kate Middleton Went Rowing in These Affordable, Celeb-Loved Sneakers

Erin Fitzpatrick

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently on day four of their tour of Poland and Germany. On the agenda today? Rowing. Kate Middleton laced up her go-to Superga 2750 Cotu Classic Sneakers ($65) and hit the water like the good sport she is. Her favorite sneakers also happen to be celebrity-approved—Emma Watson, Suki Waterhouse, Chiara Ferragni, and even Middleton's late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, are fans of the shoes too.  

On Wednesday afternoon, the entire family landed in Berlin, Germany, where Kate Middleton wore a beautiful blue Catherine Walker coat. As it turns out, there's actually a hidden meaning behind her color choice, as The Telegraph first reported.

The newspaper explains the significance: "Berlin Blue, or Prussian Blue, is a pigment that was first developed in Berlin in the early 18th Century, and became the lead color for the Prussian Army and for other German military uniforms up until the First World War when gray became the staple."

Plus, there's even a second possible meaning behind the hue. Middleton's coat could also be interpreted as cornflower blue, paying homage to one of the country's official national flowers, per The Telegraph. Who would have known? Read on to get the full recap of her tour outfits.
