Turns out short dresses combined with windy days look good on the Duchess of Cambridge. While boasting a wardrobe full of easy, classic pieces that also happen to translate perfectly during a high-profile event (or tea with the queen), it’s no wonder that nearly everything she throws on grabs headline… But once in a while, it’s for all the wrong reasons that make people gasp in excitement. Being a princess, we can’t imagine the queen is too happy about this one! Here are 10 times Kate Middleton’s outfit was no match for a gust of wind…
Kate Middleton had a Marilyn Monroe moment as her dress blew up in the wind while visiting a war memorial in India. The 34-year-old mother of two and her husband, Prince William, were laying a wreath at the memorial in New Delhi when a gust of wind blew her white Emilia Wickstead dress. It echoed the famous Marilyn Monroe scene from The Seven Year Itch, where the bombshell’s frock lifted after a gust came up from a subway grate.
Kate’s was not so lucky as her yellow Jenny Packham dress flew up on the tarmac at Calgary airport in front of cameras and soldiers, briefly revealing her underwear… Seemingly unaware that her skirt had blown up revealing her shapely legs.
Being seven months pregnant, the Duchess of Cambridge might have expected all eyes to be on her sizeable bump, but windy weather and her flimsy outfit had other ideas. Kate was left red-faced after the gusts lifted up her Topshop polka-dot dress, drawing attention instead to her thighs as she arrived at the wedding of friends.The High Street bargain sold out within hours of her wearing it, but the dress may not get a third showing after proving unsuitable for the gusty British weather once again.
A strong gust of wind blew Kate’s dress and coat right up, exposing her thighs and catching the Duchess off guard as she descended down the steps of the airplane. A Catherine Walker-clad Kate was so focused on holding baby George that she had some trouble keeping her red coat dress from blowing in the wind. A little help here, William?
When Prince William and his lovely wife were out and about in Australia, a gust of wind stirred Middleton’s printed DVF wrap dress- and an international controversy. It revealed a great bum that definitely gives her sister Pippa Middleton a run for her money.
The duchess looked her usual elegant self at the children’s charity, but she struggled to maintain her modesty as she bent down to accept a posy from a young fan and a gust of wind exposed her slender pins as her navy Orla Kiely skirt nearly got the better of her.
7.It was not the finale to her Royal tour that the Duchess of Cambridge would have been hoping for while leaving a plane at Brisbane airport. She was attacked by the wind monster, but was able to avoid further embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions by holding down her billowing dress, and handled all the mishaps with her usual poise.
While welcoming Singapore’s president, the duchess covered up in a bespoke Alexander McQueen dress that caught a stiff breeze. Looks like all eyes were elsewhere… except the photographer’s.
Her cream and navy cable-knit Alexander McQueen dress was whipped up by the wind as she met wellwishers in Charlottetown. On that occasion she was wearing a cream slip, which protected her modesty.
10. A very pregnant Kate covered her bump in a pale pink Alexander McQueen coat for church on a significantly windy day, only to be met with a gust of wind that lifted the Duchess’s dress and made her dotty.
