Meghan Markle Had Another ‘Something Blue’ On Her Wedding Day That We all Missed

Such a sweet touch

By now we’ve all seen the enormous aquamarine sparkler adorning Meghan Markle’s right hand when she stepped out in her Stella McCartney reception dress.

It is believed that Prince Harry gifted Meghan with the incredible rock that was dubbed her ‘something blue’, however it turns out the Duchess already had that detail meticulously planned out well before the day.

In a statement released by Kensington Palace on Meghan’s reception look, it was explained that the soles of her Aquazurra shoes were actually painted baby blue.

“The Bride’s evening dress is designed by Stella McCartney and is a bespoke lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe,” read the statement. “The Bride is wearing shoes from Aquazurra made in silky satin, with nude mesh, with soles painted in baby blue.”

“It has been an incredible experience to have had the opportunity to design a bespoke shoe for The Duchess of Sussex evening reception,” Aquazurra’s Creative Director Edgardo Osorio wrote on Instagram alongside a sketch of the shoe. “I am deeply honoured to have been chosen for this special occasion and extremely pleased with the creation.” 

“The shoes are expertly hand crafted in Florence from silky satin with a contrasting see-through net backed with nude mesh showcasing a modern, timeless and feminine feel. The soles were painted in baby blue to ensure The Duchess of Sussex carries with her, her ‘something blue’”.
