Kate Middleton is typically known for her sophistication, grace, and poise. She was spotted in a slightly precarious shoe situation during a St. Patrick’s Day parade held in the UK.

The Duchess of Cambridge got the heel of her black pumps stuck in a drain cover and required the assistance of her husband, William.

The 31-year-old pregnant royal was dressed in a deep green coat and black tights, which looked very polished and ladylike. Her simple pumps were a perfect choice, but her choice of steps was apparently questionable.

Take a peek at Kate’s recent shoe mishap, and tell us if you’ve ever experienced the same problem!

Apparently, Kate’s pumps are from a brand called Episode. I couldn’t find them anywhere online, so I’m guessing they’re only available in the UK.

Nonetheless, I found this great pair of black suede pumps from Franco Sarto at Nordstrom. It’s priced at an amazing $53.56, which makes it a winner in my book. Take a look.
