Middleton has been spotted wearing a pair of wedge shoes several times this year. According to Vanity Fair, the Queen is not a fan of the footwear. In fact, the monarch doesn’t like them and is known for being a “notorious wedge-hater.”

The Duchess of Sussex did the same. Markle also wore a pair of Carina wedge espadrilles when she visited Cape Town. She was even photographed dancing with the ladies in South Africa.
