When Meghan stepped out in tights which were too pale for her skin colour one hosiery brand made sure they were there to help her.
Unlike her sister-in-law
Meghan now, however, seems to have found her match with Heist, a British hosiery brand that offer tights for every skin shade.
The usually very stylish Duchess of Sussex, 37, wore tights that were to light for her complexion on her first outing after her wedding to Prince Harry, for Prince Charles’ 70th birthday celebrations in June 2018
By the time she attended another reception at Buckingham Palace with the Princess Royal in March, Meghan’s legs looked much more natural in these tights. Hosiery brand Heist, claim that the Duchess ordered a selection of their tights and loves them
‘We’re thrilled that Meghan Markle is a fan of our tights, and one of the thousands of women who support our brand,’ a Heist spokesperson told
Heist claim they got in touch with the Duchess of Sussex after her Buckingham Palace appearance to offer her a selection of their nude tights.
The tights are a seamless toe-to-toe tube (i.e. gusset-free) and come with an adaptable waistband, low or high waisted, Heist tights claim to make digging, sagging or rolling a thing of the past.
To begin with Heist were disappointed when their tights gift was returned to them, after the Palace said that the Royal family are not allowed to accept gifts. But shortly after, Kensington Palace put in an order in with them for Meghan.
Heist worked with 85,000 women to develop their tights, and claim to sell tights in every skin colour
‘The tights were a much better match for her and like many of our customers, they say when you know, you just know,’ says the hosiery spokesperson, who confirms that Meghan has continued to wear the brand since.
Heist said it worked with about 85,000 women to develop their tights.
While the rest of the world have turned their backs on pantyhose, they are believed to be a staple for women of the royal family. Observers noted Meghan Markle only started donning the tights after her marriage to Prince Harry when before, she would let her calves breathe free.
The tights are not mandatory but they’re seen as a mark of respect towards the eldest members of the royal family, and especially towards the queen.

Heist contacted Meghan shortly after her Buckingham Palace appearance back in June. Kensington Palace confirmed it purchased a selection of tights from the brand shortly after her wedding to Harry
