When Meghan Markle popped up in Texas earlier this month during SXSW, she wore one of her most beloved footwear styles: Her signature two-tone flats (officially known as the Spectator) from Chanel. Kate Middleton has worn a heeled version of the classic shoe and so has Princess Beatrice, both on countless occasions. That’s why we were thrilled to see the launch of M.Gemi’s spring collection and the inclusion of two different versions—the Camelia ($298) and the Casimira ($348)—of the royally-approved style.

Like we said, the Spectator—which typically is beige with a black toe cap detailing—has been in vogue since the 1930s when the Duke of Windsor (Queen Elizabeth II’s uncle) stepped out wearing a men’s version of the design to a variety of sporting events.

Today, the look is more feminine, but also incredibly versatile. We’ve seen Kate wear a version of the shoe with a range of dresses like the polka dot style she wore to an engagement in Southhampton, England last year. Princess Beatrice also paired hers with a dress at Royal Ascot, while Meghan has styled her shoes with jeans and shorts, not just in Texas, but at the Invictus Games and more. Much to our chagrin, each time the styles have been past season and, alas, sold out.

That’s where M.Gemi comes in. Thanks to their spring collection, the sustainably-focused footwear brand has made it impossibly easy to get the royal look.

The next-best thing to Meghan’s sling-back style.

With a higher heel, this version reminds us of Kate’s. (It would also look lovely with a spring dress.)

So what are you waiting for? Snag a royally-approved pair before they sell out.
