Today, in unexpected news—it's been revealed that Meghan Markle wears shoes that are too big for her for a very relatable reason.

According to fashion expert Harriet Davey, it's likely that Meghan selects the bigger footwear for an important reason. As Davey tells The Sun, "Celebs often go a size up, or even two, in the shoe department when they're at an event or on the red carpet and it's for one reason we can all relate to—to avoid blisters."

And Davey continued: "There's nothing worse than uncomfortable shoes (we've all been there on a night out) and when celebs like Meghan are wearing heels for a long period of time their feet can often swell up. The swelling can cause blisters and in the long run bunions—like long-time heel fan Victoria Beckham has been rumored to suffer with."

And as for how Meghan stops the big shoes from slipping off of her feet, The Sun's fashion expert reveals: "A trick of the trade is to stuff the toe with padding like tissue or cotton wool, and this can be taken out once they feel like they need a bit more room in their shoes." So now you know!
