The world has been all too preoccupied with Meghan Markle’s apparent wardrobe malfunction at the wedding of Charlie Van Straubenzee to Daisy Jenks in Surrey last weekend. But we failed to notice Prince Harry’s major fashion faux pas. Eagle-eyed royal watchers were quick to spot an inch of lace (possibly from her bra or a camisole) peeking out from under the collar of Meghan’s gorgeous Club Monaco color-block dress. However, they didn’t notice an even greater royal wardrobe malfunction — Prince Harry’s shoes!
The Duke of Sussex has upped his fashion game in recent years — perhaps an influence of his stylish wife Meghan. However, Harry apparently got it wrong at the wedding, where he reportedly acted as best man for his childhood friend Charlie.
The duke looked dashing in a black dress coat over a sapphire waist coat, grey tie, pin-stripe pants, and black lace-up brogues as he approached the Surrey church hand-in-hand with Meghan. Yet as he walked, the prince revealed a noticeably large hole in the sole of his shoes.
Perhaps Prince Harry has been too busy to have his favorite shoes re-soled. Or maybe he was too distracted admiring his beautiful wife that he didn’t even notice the hole. Either way, Harry proves that not every occasion needs a new outfit — something he may have learned from his late mother, Princess Diana, who made recycling fashion iconic.
In fact, at a previous wedding attended by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, it was Meghan who re-wore a pair of shoes — her wedding heels.
