The Duchess of Cambridge adopts this clever technique to stop her shoes from slipping.


Kate Middleton has always been praised for her smart approach to dressing. But, looking camera-ready at all times takes meticulous planning and calm.

 The Duchess of Cambridge’s technique is so simple but so effective.

And her tip for preventing court shoes slipping off her feet is pleasingly simple. She wears tights with sticky pads on the bottom so that her shoes stay snugly on her feet.

According to some recent reports, Kate Middleton has been spotted wearing John Lewis tights that have built-in sticky pads to prevent slipping and sliding.

The stockings are only £5 and come in nude, black, and tan. We think that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate has probably shared this styling trick with her sister-in-law, Meghan.

Why are we saying this?

Victoria Arbiter, a royal correspondent previously told The Royal UK that women in the royal family are often required to wear tights. She said:-

“You never see a royal without their nude stockings. Meghan doesn’t look like she was wearing tights or stockings in her engagement pictures. I would say that’s really the only hard, steadfast rule in terms of what the Queen requires”.

The Duchess of Sussex noticeably didn’t wear tights during her official engagement photos.

But, at her first public event as a royal after her wedding, she was wearing light semi-transparent tights with her blush dress.

With their every move scrutinised and photographed, it’s quite understandable that the women of the royal family have more than a few styling hacks up their sleeves.

They also have a clever trick to prevent their skirts from flying up. The royal women tend to wear weighted fabrics or clothes that increase static to keep the apparel from moving.
