Meghan Markle  wore Queen Elizabeth II’s most hated fashion item like what Kate Middleton recently did.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have officially kicked off their South Africa tour. The couple visited Cape Town and were holding hands when they arrived.

Markle looked stunning in her black and white printed wrap dress. However, many noticed that she wore something that the Queen doesn’t approve of – a pair of wedge shoes.

Markle complemented her dress with a gorgeous pair of Carina wedge espadrilles. The footwear is available in different colors ivory, navy, red and black like Markle’s. The duchess’ shoes are only $79 on Amazon.

According to Women’s Health, Markle has rolled out the footwear even before. She also wore wedge shoes  during her royal tour in Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji last October.

However, the monarch doesn’t really like this type of footwear. Samantha Leal of Marie Claire described Queen Elizabeth II as a “notorious wedge-hater.” An insider revealed the same thing about Her Majesty.

“The Queen isn’t a fan of wedged shoes,” an insider told Vanity Fair. “She really doesn’t like them and it’s well known among the women in the family.”

Just like Markle, the Duchess of Cambridge is a huge fan of wedge shoes. She has been photographed wearing this footwear in various occasions but not in the Queen’s presence.

However, Middleton surprised many when she welcomed the monarch at the unveiling of the garden she co-designed at Chelsea Flower Show last May. The future queen consort was wearing a pair of wedge shoes at the event.

Earlier this month, Middleton showed off her love for wedges again by wearing it when she stepped out to visit the “Back to Nature” festival in Woking, Surrey. The Duchess of Cambridge paired her favorite footwear with a $2,000 floral dress designed by Emilia Wickstead.

In related news, Prince William and Middleton are also bound to make an official tour in Pakistan. According to Duncan Larcombe, if Prince Harry and Markle’s trip would be successful it will give them a massive boost, but if anything goes wrong they will be compared to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. If both tours turn out well, the fab four will be back on track, but on a different format.
