She has won a legion of fashion fans and is responsible for sell-out trends in what has been dubbed the ‘Meghan effect’.
And in recent weeks the expectant Duchess of Sussex has astounded followers with her ability to navigate her way through an array of engagements, all while wearing towering heels.
Despite being heavily pregnant, Meghan Markle, 37, has continued to complete her flawlessly put-together ensembles with an array of five-inch heels from her favourite designers, including Stuart Weitzman and Aquazzura. And now an expert has said her knack for wearing skyscraper heels could be down to the actress wearing similar shoes for hours at a time while filming Suits, in which she starred as an attorney from 2011 to 2017.
Speaking to Femail, Lyndsay Hirst, a physiotherapist at Your Pilates Physio, explained how Meghan’s time on the legal drama could in fact have made high heels more comfortable for her than flats, especially if she has shortened calf muscles as a result of excessive wear.
Arguing that wearing heels can change your posture and stance as well as add height to your stature, she revealed that they may be giving Meghan an extra boost of confidence during public engagements.
