    So we’ve all heard of the Kate Middleton effect, aka when the Duchess wears a dress or shoes like those £45 wedges and causes websites to crash and products to sell out in a matter of hours.

    Well it looks like the Meghan Markle effect is now a thing too. Yep, it looks like Prince Harry’s girlfriend is ready to take Kate’s fashion influencer crown.

    One item in particular people are keen to buy are her shoes, specifically those by New York designer Sarah Flint.

    Her designs include paired back heels and flats, as well as jazzier jewel-encrusted and leopard print numbers.

    The designer told HELLO! says although Meghan wore her footwear way before she met Prince Harry, there has now been an ‘Increase in sales definitely and of course we track our click throughs and stuff on websites. So a lot of increased website traffic in general’.

    One of the shoes selling out is the ‘Great’ sandal, a simple tan number that the Suits actress wore at a festival in Austin recently.

    Sarah said, ‘We sold out of a lot of the sizes of the brown ‘Grear.’ We just placed a reorder luckily, so we’re getting it back in.’

    Don’t worry though, you can still buy them here in the UK via Farfetch.

    And in case you were in any doubt of how lovely Meghan is, Sarah said that the actress always writes thank you notes for her shoes. Handwritten no less.
