Meghan Markle wears cow-print heels during charity visit which she once showed off on Instagram
Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle wore stunning cow print heels to her first royal patronage visit. The shoes are the same ones she had once shown off on Instagram.
Meghan Markle's first royal patronages were just announced. The Duchess recently officially announced not one but four of her royal patronages.
She stated that all of them are "issues with which she has long been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare."
It was also announced by Kensington Palace that Her Majesty, The Queen, passed on two patronages to her new granddaughter-in-law. The Queen passed on the National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities to Markle.
To celebrate the announcements, she made a surprise visit to Smart Works in West London. The organization helps long-term unemployed women develop the skills they need to return to the workforce.
Meghan helped pick out job interview outfits for the women during her visit. She also sat in on coaching sessions for those interviews.

Not only did she pick out the perfect outfits for success, but the Duchess also led by example. She wore a stunning sleek dress with a gorgeous pair of cow-print heels.
Her black dress was designed by the maternity brand Hatch. She paired it with an Oscar de la Renta tan trench coat.

The best part of her outfit was her stunning shoes. She donned a pair of cowhide-printed heels which resemble an older version of the Gianvito Rossi "Plexi" heels in Cow Print.
Meghan had once shown off the pair of shoes on her Instagram. A clever Twitter account made the connection.
