Royal women have served as style icons for ages, but something feels suddenly modern about the approach Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have taken to their wardrobes. That’s why we’ve decided to take a walk in their shoes (literally) with the Top 10 royal-approved boots and booties. As much as fairy tales would have us believe, being a duchess or a princess doesn’t necessarily mean walking around in glass slippers. Kate and Meghan opt for chic, but practical footwear. From classic designers like Stuart Weitzman to trendier picks from brands like J.Crew, the 10 boots that follow work for everyday wear, rainy afternoons or those upcoming holiday parties! Heel heights may vary, but style remains. Whether you’re in the market for a new over-the-knee boot or something casual to wear with jeans, we’ve got options that have been stamped with the royal seal of approval. All that’s left is to complete your royal look! Style your new boots with a great pair of skinny jeans and a classic white button down. And they say, being a royal is hard.
