On Wednesday, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped out in Cape Town to the delight of fans. During the appearance on their tour of Africa, the members of the British royal family wore simple outfits, with the Duchess of Sussex in a casual black and white wrap dress and Harry in a white shirt and tan pants. However, one piece of Meghan's outfit is said to have potentially angered Queen Elizabeth II due to her public dislike of the fashion statement.

According to Express, the monarch has an intense aversion to platform heels or wedges. As Meghan wore Espadrille heels on today's outing, it is suspected that Her Majesty would not have been very pleased with the Duchess' choice in shoes.

The royals are said to be "well aware of the Queen's distaste for wedged-heels and tend to avoid wearing them in her presence." Due to this knowledge, fans of the royal family may assume that the former "Suits" actress felt "safe to bend the rules" due to the fact that she is currently "thousands of miles away from the Queen."

The Duchess has faced scrutiny over her fashion choices for quite some time, which has been partially due to the fact that she chooses not to employ a stylist. Additionally, Meghan has also made waves recently thanks to pairing unexpected jewelry with an expensive dress while attending a friend's wedding in Rome.
