Everyone needs a practical, comfortable flat in their shoe wardrobe — even a royal on an international junket. Actually, she might need a comfy shoe more than most!

Meghan Markle, aka the Duchess of Sussex, recently completed a tour of South Africa with Prince Harry and baby Archie, and her choice of flats got fashion fans buzzing.

Markle stepped out in the Sally ballet flat by Sam Edelman on a visit to a historic mosque in Cape Town. They look great with that olive-hued maxi dress!

Word spread quickly that the snazzy shoes are available on Amazon — and, best of all, the price is relatively reasonable for royal footwear.

Check out the selection of Sallys we’ve gathered below — some styles are even on sale!

Here’s the color the duchess wore in South Africa. The oatmeal shade goes with everything, and the pointy toe is graceful whether dressed up or down.


Oatmeal Suede, $35.99

Just like almost everything Markle wears, these flats are flying off the virtual shelves. In the time it took me to write this story, one of the colors I’d planned to feature sold out!

Be sure the style you want is available in your size — the selection varies.

Good luck snagging a pair of these Markle-approved classics!
