Kate looks demure in trademark nude heels and plaited hair as she and adoring William attend wedding of Princess Diana's niece

Kate looked demure in her trademark nude heels today at the wedding of Princess Diana's niece.

The Duke of Cambridge kept a protective hand on the back of the Duchess, who wore a pale grey floral dress with her favourite LK Bennett shoes to the Lincolnshire nuptials.

She completed the muted look with an elegant Whiteley beige hat and embellished coat, with her hair half up in a plait around the crown of her head.

It was latest of many outings for Kate's £180 high street shoes, which have flown off the shelves as shoppers seek to imitate her classic style.

The go-with-everything footwear has made an appearance at numerous weddings, formal occasions and even relaxed day trips.

Thrifty Kate has also worn the £99 hat before, teaming it with a white chiffon dress for the Epsom Derby last June.

Prince William laughed and joked with his friends and relatives at the wedding, but Kate looked rather serious as her husband made the introductions.

In contrast to last week's Jubilee celebrations, when the Duchess chatted with Prince Harry and her husband stood quietly to one side, this week the Duke was in charge.

Harry followed slightly behind while his older brother led Kate gently through the pretty churchyard, a pale grey clutch bag clasped in one of her hands and Diana's engagement ring sparkling on the other.

Her tasteful wedding guest outfit was finished off with pearl drop earrings and black eyeliner.

The bride was Emily McCorquodale, son of Diana's elder sister Lady Sarah McCorquodale and a guest at the royal wedding a year ago.

Lady Sarah is probably the the member of the Spencer family to whom Prince William and Harry are closest.

Lady Sarah is joint Master of the Belvoir Hunt and married to Neil McCorquodale,a former Coldstream Guards officer.

Their other children are George, a Prince Harry lookalike who shares his mother's red hair, and Celia, who hit the headlines for her wild partying earlier this year.

Emily's wedding to James Hutt took place in a pretty church in the Lincolnshire hamlet of Stoke Rochford, where she grew up on her family's 1,000-acre farm.

Her cousin Kitty Spencer also attended the wedding, wearing a low-cut white chiffon dress and navy heels.

The Earl of Spencer's daughter chose a look that was a far cry from Kate's sensible, high-necked attire.

Platinum blonde Lady Kitty, who was voted most eligible female by Tatler a few years ago, typically drew attention when the short skirt blew up around her thighs.
