There are many rules that members of the royal family must follow when it comes to fashion, including that skirt and dress hems must be below the knee. Nevertheless, Kate Middleton She has broken this rule many times, especially when her skirt has been lifted up in the style of Marilyn Monroe.

There have been many occasions in the past where a gust of wind has caused the Princess of Wales’s dress or skirt to rise. One of them was in Bhutan in July 2019, when the Prince and Princess of Wales met with the King and Queen of Bhutan in Thimpu.

It is said that Kate’s skirt rose while she was practicing a popular sport in Bhutan, archery. This fashion misstep drew comparisons to previous occasions, such as when Prince William and Kate Middleton visited New Delhi in 2016.During a wreath service, a gust of wind blew off the Princess of Wales’s dress. The Duchess wore a cream Emilia Wickstead dress with a flowing skirt.

In 2011, Kate Middleton donned a yellow Jenny Packham dress that blew away in a gust of wind during her and Prince William’s tour of Canada.

Although the Princess of Wales reportedly followed Queen Elizabeth II’s advice to prevent her skirt from riding up, the same thing happened again in January 2020, when Kate Middleton was attending the Mental Health in Education conference at the Royal Foundation in London. Chen he got out of his car, the skirt of his Dolce and Gabbana tweed suit flew up.

This was the advice of Queen Elizabeth II to Kate Middleton

In July 2019, when Kate and William were in Bhutan and the Duchess’s skirt had flown several times, a Buckingham Palace source told the Daily Star: “The queen is fed up that Kate hasn’t followed the advice to have her hems heavy to prevent her skirts from riding up.”

According to reports, Queen Elizabeth He pulled her skirts down with a secret weapon: drapery weights. Sewn into the hem of each handmade outfit were a pair of drapery weights made of lead.

This trick was devised by Her Majesty’s favorite couturier, Stewart Parvin.

Parvin told the Daily Mail in April 2012: “The beauty of a handmade outfit is that it hangs well, but of course we have a few tricks up our sleeves.”

“I just put a couple of weights in the hem of her dresses and coats and it makes them hang beautifully. If there’s a flap on the coat, I’ll sew one on each side of the opening to even it out.”

“And sometimes if she’s wearing a light chiffon skirt, I’ll sew a smaller, pea-sized lead weight on it, or even a chain.”

The Queen reportedly told Kate Middleton about drapery weights and wears them under skirts of light fabrics.

This has prevented fashion mistakes in recent years. However, the royal family’s fashion rules are constantly changing with the times, and in recent years Kate Middleton has been seen wearing short hemlines or choosing to go without stockings, as has Meghan Markle.
