Move Over, Meghan Markle, There’s a New Royal Shoe Style Star We’re Obsessing Over

While Meghan Markle may be the biggest name in royal news, there is another regal style icon whose shoes keep catching our eyes: Queen Letizia of Spain.

The Spanish noble attended the delivery of Royal Offices of Employment at the Central Academy of Defense in Madrid today. In the high heat, the queen went for a clean white look of a matching suit skirt and button-down top with a cinched belt and gold accents, including a pair of gold leaf earrings.

On her feet, the wife of King Felipe VI went with tan suede pointed-toe slingbacks. The shoes also have an impressive heel height, though the royal was still towered over by her 6-foot-6 husband.

Queen Letizia and the Duchess of Sussex seem to share fashion taste, though, as Markle wore a button-up, trench coat dress this week with pointed-toe heels for the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition.

The Spanish queen herself is a frequenter of the power pump with a progressive heel and almost always a pointy finish.
