- Royal fanatics couldn't get enough of the outfits the Royal family were wearing
- There was a lot of buzz online about why Meghan, 36, wore ill-fitting shoes again
Fashion experts have figured out the reason which is common among celebs
The Duchess of Sussex stepped out in Berkshire, England wearing simple leather heels, however eagle-eyed fans noticed they appeared to be a bit too big for her feet.
But there may be an ingenious reason for Meghan's not-so-petite pumps, according to fashion expert Harriet Davey.

'Celebs often go a size up, or even two, in the shoe department when they're at an event or on the red carpet and it's for one reason we can all relate to — to avoid blisters,' she told The Sun.
'There's nothing worse than uncomfortable shoes (we've all been there on a night out) and when celebs like Meghan are wearing heels for a long period of time their feet can often swell up.'
Harriet continued: 'The swelling can cause blisters and in the long run bunions — like long-time heel fan Victoria Beckham has been rumored to suffer with.'
Harriet noted that it's not easy to walk in shoes a size or two bigger than you'd normally wear.

She told The Sun: 'A trick of the trade is to stuff the toe with padding like tissue or cotton wool, and this can be taken out once they feel like they need a bit more room in their shoes.'
Meghan Markle engagement pictures
This isn't the first time the internet has been buzzing about her shoe size. When she and Prince Harry officially announced their engagement, the Duchess of Cambridge was photographed wearing strappy beige heels that didn't hug her heel the way they're meant to.
At the time, fans thought Meghan simply bought the shoes too big. It appears, however, that it was an intentional move to spare her heels from blistering after a long day on her feet.

Is Meghan Markle pregnant?
Just over a month after her wedding to Prince Harry, rumors are swirling about Meghan Markle being pregnant. According to Hollywood Life, Meghan and Prince Harry learned they were pregnant with not one, but two babies upon returning from their honeymoon.
A source told the outlet: 'They didn't expect it to happen so soon, and they were all the more giddy to learn they were having two — one a boy, the other a girl.'
These reports seem unlikely, however.
Most women aren't able to learn the gender of a baby until about 16 to 20 weeks into their pregnancy. By then, a woman who is with child is usually showing.
