Simple is Elegant and Comfort is key – the Duchess of Sussex is trending with a pair of Oatmeal Suede flats costing just USD 100 while on her royal trip to South Africa. The royals may have museum-worthy jewels, but that doesn’t mean they cannot love affordable fashion.
Meghan and her husband Prince Harry recently kicked off another royal tour, this time they are in South Africa with a special guest: Baby Archie, reported People.
Having had numerous tour experiences, the former ‘Suits’ actor knows the exact trick to make it through the long, event-filled days: a pair of comfortable shoes.
On September 24, Markle wore the oatmeal-colored suede shoes while touring the Auwal Mosque in Cape Town. To visit the first and oldest mosque in the country, Markle paired the affordable flats with a maxi dress from Insta-favorite brand Staud. The belted shirt dress was made from recycled-tissue nylon, and its rich olive green color went seamlessly with the beige Edelman flats. Markle also wore an off-white headscarf that echoed the suede shoes during her visit.

Happy Heritage Day South Africa! 🇿🇦 • Today we are celebrating the great diversity of cultures, beliefs and traditions that make up the rainbow nation. Bo Kaap streets filled with colour and music while Their Royal Highnesses were welcomed to one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods in Cape Town. The area has seen inter-community tension rise over the last few years, yet days like today show how faith, traditions, food and music bring people together, and celebrate the things that unite each and every one of us. The Duke and Duchess are so happy to have been invited to the festivities in Bo Kaap today, and were overwhelmed by the amazing welcome. #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica • Photo ©️ photos PA images / SussexRoyal
