Meghan Markle is a fashion icon. She was one before she became Duchess of Sussex, and she’s one now. Her style is sleek and professional – and involves lots of high heels. Yet even the most fashionable members of the royal family seemingly aren’t immune to the problems that high heels bring. So Meghan has apparently invented herself a clever little hack to avoid said problems, and it’s one worth taking note of should you wish to follow in her footsteps.
And why wouldn’t you want to be like Meghan? Her relationship with Prince Harry is a modern-day fairytale of sorts, after all. She was an actress most famous for the legal drama Suits; he was the one-time “party prince,” whose past escapades included playing strip billiards in Las Vegas. But together, they became a truly impressive royal power couple.
And when the palace announced the couple’s engagement, the pair looked delighted and in love in the official photographs. Right from that early moment, however, it became clear that Meghan wasn’t going to play by any royal fashion rules. The dress she wore as she posed with Harry for these pictures is actually sheer, which is very daring for a royal.
