Kate Middleton's popularity has been causing fans around the world to snatch up everything she wears or favors, from affordable dresses to panty hose. It's called the "Duchess Effect". Now Prince Harry is causing his own fashion frenzy, reports Daily Mail. His new shoes are a big hit!
Prince Harry is in Jamaica today, on tour representing the Queen. The prince is a guy, and guys don't shop much, even for important trips. But maybe he has had some advice from his fashionable sister-in-law. Or maybe he just wants to look great on his own. Anyway, before he left on this current Caribbean tour, Harry went shopping. His favorite find seems to be a pair of casual desert boots, in "tobacco" with white trim, by Russell and Bromley.
Kate Middleton could not have done better herself. Prince Harry made a real fashion find, somehow, off a pre-season rack. The summer-style shoes are perfect for the Caribbean weather, and they look greatÂ—so great men all around the world want a pair just like them.
Ok, possibly it's just the women who shop for these men, who have fallen for Harry's desert boots. Whichever, customers are clamoring, and the shoes won't officially be available for another couple of weeks. They will also come in dark brown and blue suede. Odds are they will sell out immediately.
Palace sources say Prince Harry doesn't normally take an interest in clothes, but this trip was different. It has to be Kate Middleton's effect.
Probably Harry had the shoes on, when he got to meet the Bahamian Beauty Queen who wants to marry him. Stay tuned.
