One of my biggest worries in the coming months is that the Duchess of Sussex is going to start styling herself more and more like the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate’s button-covered, wedge-happy, doily-realness style is her own: love it or hate it, she owns her fussy WTFery style. We had high hopes that Meghan would usher in a new era of duchess-dressing, that she would introduce trousers and smart, clean, minimalist style into royalwear. So far we’ve been disappointed. But one thing that Meghan has in her favor: she has yet to wear fug wedges while doing any kind of event or appearance as a royal. Which brings me to this funny article:
If you want to be part of the Royal family, you’ve got to dress the part. According to Vanity Fair, that means following a strict no wedges policy, dictated entirely by the Queen’s preferences. While this fashion bylaw isn’t official, sources say that neither Meghan Markle nor Kate Middleton will wear wedges around the 92-year-old British monarch.
‘The Queen isn’t a fan of wedged shoes,’ one source told the outlet. ‘She really doesn’t like them and it’s well known among the women in the family.’
