Has Kate Middleton finally started embracing the Queen’s amazing hack that stops her skirt blowing up in the wind? [Getty]
With all eyes on the Duchess of Cambridge, the royal always looks impeccable.
Whether Kate Middleton is sitting court side at Wimbledon or dining with fellow royals in Spain, her outfits always gain international praise.
But how does Prince William’s wife manage to avoid such common fashion blunders nowadays?
Like the dreaded moment your undies are suddenly put on full display when the wind pulls up your skirt or dress?

Well it looks like the mum of two may have finally embraced a trick her Grandmother-in-law swears by.
Queen Elizabeth II reportedly uses curtain weights to keep her dress in check.
The royal has the coin-like items sown into the lining of her dresses and skirts, adding extra weight to her wardrobe.
The hack has also been updated by cyclist over the years, who’ve used pennies to keep their skirts weighed down as they take to their bikes.

But has Kate finally taken on board the monarch’s top tip?
After becoming victim to a blustery day several time in the past, it looks like Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mum has finally conquered the fashion blunder.
Kate, 35, hasn’t suffered such from a windy day in a while.
She recently attended Wimbledon in a polka dot black and white dress — much like the Topshop one that got caught in the wind when she was pregnant in 2012 with George — and managed to avoid the accidental exposé.

And this isn’t the only expert hack we can steal from the royals.
Recently, beautician Deborah Mitchell, who has treated many celebrities including Prince William’s wife, appeared on This Morning to discuss her glow-inducing secrets.
She told the hosts her favourite treat for her clients is a homemade chocolate facial, using chocolate spread.
Deborah said: “Just use a normal chocolate spread with nuts and palm oil. The sugar in this is a really good exfoliator.”

She advised people lather is on and wait for the stuff to dry, saying: “After you’ve done it, the skin goes very very sheeny and moist because the palm oil works on it – it helps dry skin the most.”
Edible treats aside, here’s what else Kate keeps inside her beauty arsenal.
