While Meghan Markle spent much of her two-week royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand last fall in darling dresses and heels (how the pregnant royal did it, we’ll never know!), she and Prince Harry did get to dress down every now and again. For a visit to the Redwoods Tree Walk in Rotorua, New Zealand, on October 31, 2018, the Duchess of Sussex rocked a pair of Birdies flats that promptly sold out, but the royals’ preferred Starling Slipper is now back in stock — at least for the time being!
For their outdoorsy hike, the mom to be sported a pair of black Outland Denim Harriet skinny jeans with a jewel-tone Givenchy sweater, Oslo down jacket she borrowed from her hubby and the Birdies loafers.
The $120 black smoking slipper is made of a classic vegan velvet and features a no-slip rubber sole, which made them up for the task of traversing the forested New Zealand terrain. Oh, and while flats can be hit or miss as far as comfort is concerned, the brand is known for its special seven-layer cushion technology that molds to your feet as you wear them — perfect for the pregnant royal.
After the former Suits actress sported the preppy pair on Halloween, they sold out fast (as most things the Duchess and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton wear do), but the San Francisco-based brand has since restocked the design. In fact, they are currently available on its website in sizes five to 12.
So whether you are looking for a comfy alternative to your usual workwear pumps or want to upgrade your off-duty shoe situation à la Markle, here’s your chance to snag the affordable style.
