For some reason the Australian press decided to dub the outfit a 'faux pas'. It even somehow managed to make the evening news - perhaps the commercial stations had run out of AFL football stories.
The idea that it is somehow inappropriate to wear a pair of Le Chameau wellies in the great outdoors is a bit silly. If they are waterproof and lined with leather and extraordinarily well made, chances are you won't get your feet wet. And if the Duchess of Cambridge can't wear designer camping gear, I don't know who can. Anyway, I'm sure the kids didn't know or care what kind of brands she was wearing.
All in all, an effortless look. All class.
