Why Meghan Markle’s royal wedding shoes may be by this designer

By: Meaghan Wray

As the royal wedding countdowncontinues, chatter is building over how Meghan Markle will choose to present herself when she says “I do” to Prince Harry. From the gown to the veil to the shoes, the combination is sure to dazzle fans with a look that will go down in history. And when it comes to footwear, British designer Aruna Seth is one talent who could be in the running to make sure Meghan’s first steps as a royal are as glam as can be.

It’s not a stretch to think that Aruna could play a role in outfitting the Suits alum. The 33-year-old designer has close ties with the Royal Family, having dressed Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Duchess Kate in the past. She even dressed Pippa Middleton for her sister Kate's wedding day back in 2011. As a London socialite, the fashion maven runs in the same circles as Meghan, so their paths have likely crossed.

Though looking glam is certainly a no-brainer for Meghan, who always looks effortlessly chic, comfort is also important for the laid-back Cali girl, and Aruna’s shoes have that down pat. As an avid lover of heels, the former actress likely knows a thing or two about picking the perfect pair. Aruna’s designs and their cashmere-like comfort padding, combined with a non-slip sole and comfortable height, would let the bride focus on her husband-to-be at the altar – not her aching feet.

On the topic of glam, the Surrey native – whose designs sell exclusively at Harrods in London – uses only the finest of Parisian laces, Chantilly lace, which has always been a royal choice in the past. Not unlike her future sister-in-law Kate, Meghan likes to pay tribute to the Commonwealth using stunning fashion pieces from each country. Perhaps she’ll go for this British designer as an homage to her new family, the British royals, despite the $3,000 custom shoe price tag.
