36-year-old Kate Middleton is in the last trimester of her pregnancy, but she is in no hurry to take a maternity leave. On February 7, the Duchess of Cambridge arrived in the city of Wickford to open a new center to fight addiction. During the event, there was a small but unpleasant incident. However, William’s wife handled it with perfect grace.

Supporting charities and battling addiction

In April 2018, the duchess will welcome her third kid with Prince William. But before delivering a baby, she tries to do as much as possible to improve the lives of other people. The other day, Kate Middleton headed to a small city in Essex to visit the opening of a health and wellness center specializing in helping people with serious addiction.

Kate could not miss this event as she has been in charge of the Action on Addiction charitable foundation for the last six years. Taking part in a discussion with professionals and meeting patients, the royal mom got to know that the program is quite effective, with 80% of clients not returning to any treatment. She said:

It's great to be here as well as seeing the development of where the charity has gone over the years gone past.

Getting her stiletto stuck

Kate looked stunning in a bright blue woolen Goat coat while being greeted by both the staff of the institution and numerous admirers. Not to stay long in the courtyard, the duchess hurried inside, but her heel stuck in a gutter. Fortunately, she kept her balance, quickly freed herself from the temporary captivity, and even laughed at the incident!

In 2016, the Vice Lord Lieutenant of Essex fell when he met the royal couple, so Kate didn’t miss the perfect opportunity to make a reference to it. As he said:

I reminded her [about the fall]. Then she caught her heel. She said, Oh…do the same as you!

Another footwear malfunction

But this is not the only pesky pitfall she encountered while rocking high heels. 5 years ago, Kate nearly fall during the St. Patrick’s Day parade when her heels got stuck in a grate. Both the duke and the duchess seemed to giggle as she bent down to pull her stiletto out.
