During her royal outings, Meghan has paraded a lot of gorgeous high heels, but she never wore ‘comfortable’ footwear. However, recently, the Duchess appeared in the most casual type of shoes of all – sneakers.

Casual in a royal way

Known for her impeccable style and love for gorgeous heels, the Duchess opted for a cool pair of sustainable sneakers while joining her husband to watch the 2018 Sydney Invictus Games.

Veja sneakers are famous for their minimal, yet trendy, designs, and sustainability. They are also eco-friendly: The top is often created from a leather-like material made from curdled milk. Recycled plastic bottles and wild rubber are used in making other parts of the shoes.

Meghan’s choice of footwear is completely understandable, as the Sussex family took to the Games by boat.

What kind of shoes is the most comfortable for pregnant women?

According to Parent.Guide, the most suitable shoes for pregnant women are flats and flip-flops. However, there are other options, which can feel comfortable and look great on a swollen foot.

There are three things a pregnant lady should look for in a shoe:

  1. They should be easy to put on.
  2. They should offer a lot of support.
  3. They should have a little extra room.

Despite that, the royal protocol doesn’t allow expectant royal mammas to show their toes, so it might be a little difficult for Meghan to choose appropriate and comfortable footwear. So the snickers might have been a breath of fresh for the Duchess.
