The Duchess of Cambridge has proved she is a style inspiration in more ways than one.

Not only does the 38-year-old royal turn heads when she steps out in elegant gowns, chic dresses and two-pieces, but also her more casual attire too.

This week fashion search platform, Lyst, released its trend report for the first quarter of 2020, which has analysed over nine million people’s online shopping habits a month across 12,000 designer brands and stores.

The research showed New Balance 993 trainers were among the 10 hottest products people searched for and bought this year.

Plus the American retailer has seen page views increase by 41% each quarter too.

Turns out, Kate Middleton is one step ahead of the curve, as she has been wearing the label for years.

She was first pictured wearing the New Balance Vazee Transform trainers in 2017 when she took part in a friendly race against husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry during the Team Heads Together London Marathon Training Day.

Duchess Catherine has recently worn a different pair of trainers from the brand during a visit to Ireland, although they were part of a limited edition collection exclusive to Sweaty Betty.

New Balance have not only received the royal seal of approval, but have also been a huge hit with other famous faces too.

Rihanna, Emma Roberts and model Kaia Gerber are among celebrities who have worn the brand’s footwear.
