As protocol dictates, she almost always has to wear them. However, Kate managed to find the perfect stockings that don’t glimmer on the sun and look practically invisible.

Fashion tricks are one thing, but handling awkward situations is another. And Kate managed to succeed in both.

The clever Duchess

As royals are often jumping from one event to another, they always have to interact with other people. Kate Middleton found one clever trick to politely decline an unwanted interaction.

If you looked closely at her photos from the royal outings, you may have noticed that she often tends to favor clutch bags and the etiquette expert Myka Meier believes there is a specific reason for that.

Meier is certain that it is the way Kate tries to avoid awkward handshakes. She explained:

When the Duchess is at an event, she holds her bag in front of her in both hands when shaking hands might be awkward.

Another expert, William Hanson, agrees by saying that holding a clutch firmly in her hands allows her not to extend her hand if she doesn’t want to.

Interestingly, late Princess Diana also exploited her clutch bags as a weapon, but a very different kind. She, reportedly, used them to cover her breasts while getting out of the car.

Well, it certainly worked as Lady Di was never involved in a compromising situation, involving her cleavage area.
