4 Clothing Items That Would Make a Royal Cringe

Depending on your royal IQ, you're familiar with some or many of the things your favorite duchesses and princesses wear. You might have caught onto Kate Middleton's penchant for a specific pair of shoes and Meghan Markle's love for bateau necklines, for example. But what about the items royals don't wear?

If you pay attention, you'll notice that there are certain pieces that royals tend to steer clear of. For instance, celebrities with trend-driven style, like Gigi Hadid or Irina Shayk, often wear chunky "dad" sneakers, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a princess in the of-the-moment style. Instead, royals favor classic, timeless versions that will never go out of style—think crisp, classic white shoes. Scroll down to see the four items royals don't wear and what they gravitate toward instead.
