However, royal watchers on were not impressed, arguing that the sheer hosiery did not match Meghan‘s skin colour with one saying her tights looked ‘dreadful‘.

‘If you could find both Meghan and I tights in the correct shade, that would end a 30 year search for me,‘ one said. ‘Or perhaps implore a designer to remember us biracial ladies‘.

‘Why can‘t her stylist actually find the right skin colour tights for her? Those tights are pale for her,‘ another added. 

Brands such as Pendeza, Own Brown and Bianca Miller, set up by a former Apprentice candidate, specialise in tights for darker skin tones but many high street brands ‘natural‘ tights are firmly aimed at white women.

The $450 (£335) – known as the ‘Siren‘ – are described on the brand‘s website as a ‘pump that means business‘, the and are crafted from Nappa leather with a PVC embellishment.
