Princess Diana used clutches to hide her cleavage.

Princess Di used her clutches to cover her cleavage as she got out of cars. Why? It prevented any prying photographers from snapping a revealing pic of her.

It’s no secret that part of royal protocol for women is to wear pantyhose, but the smooth material makes it way too easy for their feet to slide out of their heels…

Princess Diana wore hats with hidden combs in them.

Formal public occasions often call for hats, and I’m sure you’ve wondered how some of the gravity-defying royal headpieces manage to stay perched so perfectly—especially the larger, wide-brimmed ones.

Kate uses hairnets to keep her strands in place.

Despite all odds, Kate makes a pretty convincing case for the hairnet. She often wears them when her hair is styled in more intricate updos—that way, she doesn’t have any rogue fly-aways.

Royals wear weights on their hems…sometimes.

Another go-to fashion hack royals use to stop wardrobe malfunctions is weights added to their skirts and dresses. Seems like the royal family stylist sometimes runs out of time to employ this trick, though, as evidenced here by Kate’s flying-skirt moment at Princess Eugenie’s wedding in October 2018. Whoopsie!

Another way royals prevent their outfits from billowing in the wind is by choosing thicker fabrics and more fitted silhouettes, like Kate’s tweed blazer-and-skirt set pictured here.

Royals wear shoes that are one size too big.

According to fashion expert Harriet Davey, going up a shoe size is a style hack employed by many celebrities. It looks like Meghan used this trick in this instance, as there’s lots of room behind her heel in these strappy Aquazzura pumps.
