Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge
has been keeping a low profile since announcing her pregnancy late last year, but she was photographed at an event held for The Art Room charity at The National Portrait Gallery last night. Looking rather radiant in a blue satin down, Kate made it clear that she is still as fond of heels as she ever was, even with her growing bump:

The Duchess has been a fan of Rupert Sanderson's shoes for some time, having previously worn them along to several high profile events. It's interesting to note that she hasn't chosen to trade her favourite heels in for a lower style (particularly with the trend for kitten and smaller heels now in full swing) during her pregnancy, instead sticking with the slender super high heels that have become a trademark part of her look.

The heels in questions are Rupert Sanderson's 'Malone' pumps in a blue/grey suede finish:
