So THIS Is What The Queen Dislikes About Kate Middleton’s Wardrobe


The Duchess of Cambridge is accustomed to having her fashion choices scrutinised by now… 

It’s part and parcel of her fashion icon status.

However, it turns out that her biggest fashion critic may be closer to home than we thought.

Earlier this week, we revealed Kate’s secret to wearing heels comfortably, but it turns out her favourite footwear is a controversial topic in Buckingham palace.

The insider revealed: “The Queen isn’t a fan of wedged shoes.

“She really doesn’t like them and it’s well known among the women in the family.”
