Buying a bridesmaid gift for a group of ladies who are all under the age of 7 is no easy task—but newlywed Meghan Markle managed to come up with the perfect solution.

Each of her six bridesmaids (ranging in age from 3 to 7) received a pair of white leather Aquazurra shoes monogrammed with their initials and the wedding date. "The shoes are a gift from Ms. Markle to the young ladies as a keepsake of the special day," read a statement from The Palace. After a bit of online digging, it seems the shoes were custom designs, as they're not currently available on Aquazurra's site.

"There were really charming little moments that we saw throughout the day," said India Hicks, Prince Charles' goddaughter and Princess Diana's bridesmaid, in an interview with E! "What I loved were the little bridesmaid shoes—the way that Meghan gave them as a gift and they had those initials embroidered on the front." (While we can't make out the monograms in the photos, we'll take everyone's word for it.)

The bridesmaids were also given flower crowns that Prince Harry and Meghan had specifically selected for them. Designed by florist Philippa Craddock, the flowers—some of Princess Diana's favorites—were meant to mimic the blooms in the bride's bouquet.
