The Duchess of Cambridge is a fashion icon. In fact, the Kate Middleton effect is indeed very strong. So strong that just by wearing a brand or giving it her royal seal of approval, she can make the pieces sell out in minutes.

But, it’s not all yet.  

It’s well known by now, that being a royal allows you to have fashion designers at your disposal and custom made couture. But, there are some royal fashion rules that Kate Middleton and her now sister-in-law, Meghan Markle will have to follow.


While both the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex will always wear tights and hats in public, there are two official royal fashion rules. Some of their fashion decisions are just to respect Queen Elizabeth’s preferences. Especially when it all comes to footwear.

So, does the Queen wants her royal brides not to wear wedges?

But, on closer inspection, it looks like there’s a time and a place. And so, she will never wear wedges in front of Queen Elizabeth, replacing them instead with court heels at events where her Majesty is present.

The reason is simple. The 92 year-old reigning monarch doesn’t like them. A source told The Royal UK: “The Queen isn’t a fan of wedged shoes. She really doesn’t like them. And, it’s not from now, but it has been like this since a long time. And, it’s well known among the women in the family”.
