Kate Middleton: Duchess of Cambridge had this very embarrassing moment on royal tour

Kate Middleton is famous for her very classy style no matter what event she is attending.

Even when visiting very hot countries on royal tours with Prince William she maintains her chic look.

However, during a visit to India with her husband in 2016, she suffered an unfortunate fashion mishap.

The incident occurred when the royal couple were visiting India Gate, the country’s national war memorial in the capital New Delhi.

Kate’s Emilia Wickstead dress was caught by a strong gust of wind leading to a near-miss Marilyn Monroe moment.

The white dress billowed perilously around her upper thighs as the Duchess struggled to hold the gown down.

Impressively, Kate managed to retain her composure throughout the event despite battling the wind.

Pictures show the now-mother-of-three elegantly handling the situation as they approached the memorial and laid wreaths for India’s First World War soldiers.

Thankfully she managed to protect her modesty throughout the occasion.

This is far from the first time Kate’s penchant for light fabrics has caught her out.

In 2011, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Canada for their first trip as a married couple, visiting Ontario, Quebec and Alberta.

However, when Kate was exiting the one at Calgary Airport, the wind caught the Duchess by surprise.

Her dress then blew up, exposing underneath as the skirt blew up to her waist.

She quickly caught the hem of the skirt and pushed it down to spare her blushes.

This problem is not rare for the royal family and the Queen has come up with an inventive way to tackle this issue herself.

Telegraph reporter Gordon Rayner, who has attended 20 royal tours, revealed that all of the Queen’s skirted are weighted.

These weights will serve to keep her skirts and dresses staying down, no matter what the weather. 

“All the Queen’s skirts are weighted to avoid them blowing up as she gets off aeroplanes,” wrote Rayner in the Telegraph.

Stewart Parvin, who designed dresses for the Queen, told the MailOnline in 2012: “Sometimes if she is wearing a lightweight chiffon skirt I will sew in a smaller lead weight the size of a pea or even a length of chain.”

Senior dresser Angela Kelly is in charge of the Queen’s outfits and plans months in advance what Her Majesty will wear on royal tours.

Kelly will make sure that the planned outfits won’t clash with the backdrops and even travels to the destination to check.
