It’s no secret that the Duchess of Cambridge is partial to a pair of wedges.
The future Queen consort has been spotted on numerous occasions sporting a pair of the easy-to-wear summer shoes.
The royal mum-of-three wore a gorgeous pair when she attended the RHS Back to Nature festival alongside Mary Berry, looking elegant in the £45 footwear from high street favourite, Monsoon.
Duchess Catherine is also a fan of a slightly pricier wedge option. She wore a pair of the Castañer Carina espadrille wedges on multiple different dates last year, proving they’re a wardrobe favourite of hers.
Last summer she stunned in a green printed Sandro dress and a pair of Accessorize earrings at the event, keeping it summery and casual with her beige canvas wedges complete with a tie up detail.
Duchess Meghan Markle was spotted wearing a simple black pair of wedges by the same brand back in 2018 too.
The former Suits actress stepped out in the royal approved shoes when she and Prince Harry attended a beach wedding on Bondi Beach in Australia, teaming them with a flowing bold striped maxi dress.
A pair of the Castañer Carinas will set you back £85-£90 on Net-A-Porter, but with warmer weather (hopefully) on the horizon, fans of the regal wedges will be pleased to hear that Marks & Spencer are selling a fab dupe option, costing less than £25.
The high street store’s affordable buy feature a classic wedge heel, a breathable canvas toe and an ankle strap for ultimate comfort.
Classically, the Wedge Heel Almond Toe Espadrilles come in oatmeal, black and navy and retail at just £22.50 a pair – so we reckon it’s justifiable to treat yourself to more than one.
Naturally, the spring to summer essentials have received plenty of praise from satisfied shoppers online.
‘These espadrilles are a perfect height and look very stylish in their simplicity. The neutral colour will go with everything. They look good with dresses, skirts, skinny jeans etc so are very versatile. Excellent price too having looked around at similar sandals. Very pleased with them,’ one swooning customer reviewed.
‘I don’t wear heels much anymore and was unsure about the height of the wedge, however these are perfectly comfortable to walk in for me. I love them so much I bought a pair in navy and in black. I am now looking forward to the better weather so that I can wear these,’ a second agreed.
‘Comfortable, wear well, classic style,’ one more simply summed up.
