When you're in line to become the Queen, there is no room for a fashion faux pas. Perfection is the only option.


Over the years Kate Middleton has created a distinct style while managing to meet all the royal rules and regulations for dressing. To do so without any mishaps, the Duchess of Cambridge has employed a few hacks over the years. Here is a look at some of her favorites.

1. Pantyhose with Sticky Heels

Royal ladies always wear pantyhose when their legs are on show. However, this can cause their feet to slip around in their shoes.


To combat this, Kate Middleton chooses tights that have silicone pads at the bottom. This allows the tights to stick to the inside of her high heels. One of her favorites is the Non-Slip Open Toe Tights by John Lewis.

2. Opting For Fascinators

As a royal, Kate has to wear hats more often than most people. The duchess has found a way to abide by the rule without three simple styles.

She mainly gravitates towards pillbox hats, headbands, and fascinators. Not only do they stay in place once clipped in or secured, but they are also more comfortable than a large hat, and should she need to take them off, she will not suffer from hat hair.


3. Leather Insoles in Heels


As a royal, Kate Middleton spends a lot of her time attending functions in heels. Many of these functions require her to also stand for long periods of time.

Most of us know, standing in high heels can be a killer. However, Kate has solved the issue by using Alice Bow leather insoles to add an extra cushion padding to any shoe to make it more comfortable.

4. Strapless Shapewear


According to The Sun, royal etiquette expert, Myka Meier revealed on Instagram that Kate has one piece of clothing that is essential to her entire wardrobe. Meier revealed that the duchess uses a strapless, seamless bodysuit to achieve a sleek silhouette.

"Royal Style Hack Alert! Ever wonder why you never see bra straps?! Swipe to see a secret trick which is a must-have royal wardrobe piece!"

wrote Meier.

5. Restyle

Lastly, the Duchess of Cambridge's last trick to looking flawless without spending excessively is to restyle and re-wear her favorite pieces. From adding a new belt to pairing it with different accessories, she has mastered the art of refreshing an old outfit.
