The health expert, who runs the practice DG Podiatrist and is an ambassador for CCS Footcare, says the apparent condition could have been caused by “high impact training” when Harry served in the military.
She to FEMAIL: “Harry’s toes may look slightly peculiar in shape in the photo, but this is down to the angle the foot is in on the ground.
“His feet seem to appear healthy and there is a good arch profile visible.
“However potentially he may have mild bunion deformity, whereby there is a medial deviation of the joint attached to the big toe, making the bony appearance prominent.
“In his case, a likely cause of this condition is the high impact training and action he underwent while in the Armed Forces.”
Meanwhile, Harry’s bare-foot appearance also caught the attention of royal watchers on social media.
One user wrote on Twitter: “Congratulations Harry and Meghan… but serious is there any need for Harry’s bare feet.”
Another added: “OK OK I’ll be the one to say it. If I never see Prince Harry’s bare feet again it’ll be too soon.”
The Duke of Sussex spent a decade in the Armed Force, including two tours of Afghanistan.
The joyous news of the expected royal arrival comes amid a whirlwind 24 hours for Meghan and Harry.
