The £20 tights that Meghan Markle swears by for royal duties

The women of the Royal family wear nude tights to all official functions, but it appears that Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has found a make that is a game-changer in the hosiery world because it is so inclusive.

She wore them when she first became a royal and many believed that she had bare legs because they were so natural looking that it was near impossible to see she was wearing them.

The tights cost £21 and are from brand Heist. They are steadily becoming a cult favourite among the fashion crowd and have managed to convert those that would never typically wear nude tights. Unlike other tight designs, their pairs are comfortable owing to a stretchy panel at the high waistband.

Megan allegedly became familiar with the brand shortly after getting married. People magazine reported that "It was after an appearance wearing too-pale nude tights at Buckingham Palace three days after her wedding that Heist got in touch with Meghan to offer a selection of their nude tights.”

Obviously she could not accept the gift but the Duchess liked the tights so much that she ordered them herself, and she has worn them ever since.

As a spokesman for Heist told WhoWhatWear: “We know from our customers that women shy away from wearing nude garments for the most part because, with only a limited range of shades on offer, they are unable to find a suitable match.

“We saw the furore around Meghan Markle's tights at her first royal engagement as Duchess of Sussex, with the press lambasting the shade of nude. Our extended range seeks to solve this problem.”

And its not just Meghan that loves them, the customer reviews are overwhelmingly positive with many claiming they have revolutionised tights completely, with one writing: “I was sceptical. I hate tights as the thin band gives me muffin top and makes my silhouette lumpy. Or they have to be pulled up to my boobs because I’m short.

“I ordered 2 pairs from Heist, a low band and a high band. They came really quickly and both pairs truly are amazing. They are soft and very strong. They don’t feel like other tights, the quality is so good. I prefer the low band but the band is just as comfortable.”
