Lucky Camilla was a spectator at yesterday’s tennis tournament, with the Duchess clocked by fashionistas in a pair of camel-coloured shoes specifically designed for women who suffer from the condition.
The shoes, with a block heel, are made by Sole Bliss and for royal fans who would give anything to spend a day in the glam 70-year-old’s shoes, now they can for the tidy sum of £149.
The shoes – for the wide-footed woman – also boast a cushiony inside to help soothe the bony bump, a common cause of which being poorly-fitting shoes and the constant wearing of high heels.
Camilla is such a fan of the comfy clogs she scrambled to order five more pairs in the past two weeks, a company spokeswoman confirmed.
She said: “She has made a few more orders, another four I believe.
“She wore them on a royal trip to Northern Ireland and on another in Wales recently.”
The spokeswoman added: “She’s worn them four times in the past three weeks.”
Camilla has previously complained about “screaming out in agony at the end of the day” after her jam-packed diary of public engagements make her want kick off her shoes “at every opportunity”.
She also spoke about struggling to keep up with her hectic schedule during a tour of Brunei last year.
Asked by The Raja Isteri if she found it hard to keep up with her hectic schedule she said: “Very tiring. Every day, we’re non stop. It’s more tiring as you get older.”
Bunions occur when the bone joint becomes inflamed with the lubricating fluid that protects the bone.
Sole Bliss say though their shoes will not heal the condition the shoes help to pocket the bunions and soothe the lumps.
They affect around 10million women in the UK and common treatment involves bunion correctors, whereby a splint device is worn every night to push the bone back into place.
Clarence House declined to comment.
