Kate Middleton, Prince Harry’s bride-to-be Meghan Markle, as well as Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie have different styles, however, have one designer in common. 

When it comes to footwear, all the royal women, including the Duchess of Cambridge, are obsessed with Jimmy Choo. 

Jimmy Choo is a UK based-brand founded in 1996 by Professor Jimmy Choo. 

The late Princess Diana was the first famous royal to start wearing the brand, with Kate, Meghan and other royal women following in her footsteps.

Although the designs are famous for being a hit with Hollywood actresses and singers, the royals always return to the designer.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mother Kate will often opt for a pair of Jimmy Choo’s classic court heels during public engagements. 

Most recently, 36 year old Kate teamed a pair of navy court heels by the famous designer with a navy coat and matching clutch bag for a royal engagement in London for the Reach Academy with Place2Be. 

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s future bride, has also been a fan of the iconic heels for many years.

During red carpet appearances, the former Suits actress would usually show up in a pair of heels from the designer, and with her royal engagements only set to increase, we’re sure she’ll be purchasing a lot more. 

It was the late Princess Diana who was the first famous royal to start wearing Jimmy’s designs too.

Talking about working with the Princess, Jimmy revealed in an interview: “She was very down to earth. She never complained. She never said the shoe was too tight, or too big. Never.” 

“She always sent me a card that said ‘Thanks Jimmy, thanks for coming to Kensington Palace to see me’”.
