I'm no fashion expert, but wouldn't she look better in a heel when attending these functions??
These silly flat shoes that she seems to be so fond of remind me of a pair of carpet slippers from M&S!

There are very pretty, dressy flats if she is no longer comfortable wearing heels on a regular basis. I’ve had to swear them off entirely, but still manage to dress in nice shoes for nice events.

But she does seem to almost exclusively wear loafers that look like men’s bedroom slippers. I guess she’s decided it’s her quirk.

Speaking from the perspective of an (ahem) "mature" woman with knee issues, heels as I grew older became something to sigh at as I glance in my closet. The higher the heel, the greater the chance of ending up in the emergency room for me.

Personally, I think flats are just as acceptable as a heel would be for women and they're far more comfortable.

Quite a nice simple look from Sarah. I can imagine that her shoes with "drink me" on them were for a bit of fun but they just seem odd and rather silly to me. But perhaps I'm a party pooper - it just looks like she's come out in her slippers!

She looked pretty nice at Harry's wedding and she was in heels I think. I find most of her looks now days are not that great for her so it's nice when she pops up wearing something really good.

There are appropriate flats to be had for this type of occasion. These could be saved for a more casual fun evening. I just think this is the same kind of thing that Sarah has done all her life .... make foolish choices and then end up looking foolish. She just never seems to grow up. OR something like this gets her the attention she wants. But as others have said it just makes her look silly.

Sarah definitely has issues with her feet and/or knees (a few years ago I recall she had surgery on both feet) and rarely wears heels, and when she does wear them she looks both uncomfortable and unsteady. She wore heels to Harry's wedding and to her most recent appearance at Ascot. When she curtsied to Her Majesty at Ascot she held Princess Beatrice's hand and it definitely looked like she needed Beatrice to help with her balance.

Flats are far more comfortable and far easier to walk in. Sarah has been a runner for years and I wouldn't be at all surprised if her knees have taken a beating over the years.
