The Royal Trendsetter isn't Kate!

13th July 2017

It looks like Kate Middleton is not the first Royal to fall in love with Superga, proving the royal-approved shoes really are timeless.

The Daily Mail has discovered that the original trendsetter in the Royal Family was in fact the Duchess's mother-in-law, Princess Diana!

The article reports that Diana was seen wearing a navy pair of 2750 Cotu Classics during her trip to Angola in 1997 then aged 36.

Creating the ultimate nineties outfit, the Superga trainers were worn with a pair of stone wash jeans and a navy double breasted blazer with gold buttons.

Fast-forward to 2017, and Kate hasn't been able to take her white 2750s off, wearing them during her trip to Canada, at a London Marathon event, and even in GQ Magazine.

The Royal Seal of Approval truely does belong to Superga!
