Royals can’t get enough of this summery shoe.
While the season might be coming to an end soon, there’s still plenty of warm weather ahead to rock a royally approved espadrille — and Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and Spain’s Queen Letizia (along with her daughters) all favor the easy, breezy shoe.
In fact, the 49-year-old Spanish queen has worn a whopping 12 different styles of espadrilles on 15 appearances this year alone, according to Instagram account Royal Fashion Police.
Letizia’s most recent outing was yesterday when she joined her husband King Felipe VI and daughters Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia on vacation in Palma de Mallorca, Spain — and all three royal ladies got in on the espadrille action.
The queen looked cool in a loose white button-up shirt from Hugo Boss ($72, originally $239) and flat leather espadrilles ($170) from the brand along with pinstriped blue-and-white shorts.
Meanwhile, her daughters twinned in summery ‘fits and ankle-tie platforms. Leonor, the future Spanish queen, sported Macarena’s “Saura” style ($72) in beige with a ruffled pink dress from Mango, while her younger sister wore the same shoes in black along with a groovy floral patterned dress by Sfera.
While the British royal family might not wear espadrilles quite as often as Letizia, we’ve seen the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex sporting their own jute-trimmed wedges on many occasions over the years.
Both duchesses favor Spanish brand Castañer, with Markle, 41, wearing the black “Carina 80” style wedges ($135) on four outings over the years and Middleton, 40, often sporting a brown shade of Carinas with thinner ankle ties ($119, originally $195).
The Duchess of Cambridge has also been seen in other espadrille brands, like a white slip-on style by Stella McCartney she wore in Belize this spring or the slingback Pied a Terre wedges she frequently wore in the earlier years of her marriage, including the day Prince George was born.
If you’re hoping to get that royal look, get ready to add to cart, because we’ve rounded up some of Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and Queen Letizia’s favorite wedges, below.
