Royals can’t get enough of this summer shoe.

Although the season is coming to a close soon, there’s still plenty of warm weather ahead of you to rock a royally-approved espadrille — and Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle, and Spain’s Queen Letizia (along with her daughters) are all in favor of the easygoing. airy shoe.

According to Instagram account Royal Fashion Police, the 49-year-old Spanish queen has worn no fewer than 12 different styles of espadrilles during 15 performances this year.

Letizia’s most recent outing was yesterday when she vacationed in Palma de Mallorca, Spain with her husband King Felipe VI and daughters Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia – and all three royal ladies joined in the espadrille action.

The Queen looked cool in a Hugo Boss loose white button-up shirt ($72, originally $239) and the brand’s flat leather espadrilles ($170), along with blue-and-white pinstripe shorts.

Meanwhile, her daughters fraternized in summery ‘fits’ and anklets. Leonor, the future Spanish queen, wore Macarena’s “Saura” style ($72) in beige with a ruffled pink dress from Mango, while her younger sister wore the same shoes in black along with a hip floral-patterned dress from Sfera.

While the British Royal Family may not wear espadrilles as often as Letizia, we’ve seen the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex often wearing their own burlap embellished wedges over the years.

Both duchesses prefer Spanish brand Castañer, with Markle, 41, wearing the black “Carina 80” style wedges ($135) on four outings over the years and Middleton, 40, often wearing a brown shade of Carinas with thinner anklets ($119, originally $195).

The Duchess of Cambridge can also be seen in other espadrilles, such as a white Stella McCartney slip-on style she wore in Belize this spring or the slingback Pied a Terre wedges she often wore in the early years of her marriage, including the day Prince George was born.
