In fact it happen to Sophie this year at the church service of the 60th anniversary of the coronation. No news paper wrote it nor did people online tell her to take note from the Queen.

It isn't a big deal at all, it only a big deal because the media and certain people online is making it be a big deal.

Again, it's not that it happened, it's the fact that it keeps happening to her and she doesn't seem to care to try and prevent it.

Well the only way to prevent these things from happening is to have her dress in pencil skirts or have all her skirts knee length with the famous chains sewn into the hemline. Might as well have her look like an old woman who dresses like the Queen. Wouldnt that be a lovely sight to behold? For goodness sake people, at least she had on tights and a slip I think. Sure she is now "royal" but, according to some, she should become a prude. Really?

Nah, some people will say the pencil skirts are too tight or sexual. She might has well just were pantsuits, call Hilary Clinton and ask her where she buys them

That is funny Miche. It would be strange seeing her in pantsuits all the time.

Well, now, Hilary isn't the only prominent lady to wear pantsuits and wear them well. Just look at Letizia, Maxima as well as other royal ladies who certainly wear them with style, flair and panache. I think it would be a good idea for Kate to vary her wardrobe up at official events and put on a nice pair of slacks with a great blazer and accessories. It's not that she'd be breaking the style barrier here!

It would be new for the #BRF ladies, I haven't seen one yet wear pantsuits. And no forget these other royal ladies, she should just wear Hilary Clinton style pantsuits.

It would be nice, people will still call her boring, may say she doesn't take her job serious or whatever they say about Letizia when she wear pantsuits. But her pantsuits should be Clinton style

Infanta Elena and Maxima are also tall like Kate and wear their pants suits and separates well for their daytime events.

It might be worth considering that the sorts of newspapers that publish images of Catherine's legs are not read by her or her staff (I hope not anyway), and she may have no idea that there is a problem (if you can call it that) at all. Certainly if I was on her staff, I wouldn't dare go up to her and tell her! Even if she was aware of it, she has done the right thing by acting in a regal manner and ignoring it as if it wasn't there.....it's probably an urban myth, but I heard a story once about Queen Mary and that during one outing, an undergarment slipped down and she ended up having to step out of it. She then turned to her lady-in-waiting and said "please remove that offending article".

^^^Hilary dresses for her age and no one but you is claiming that Kate should wear fashions that a middle-aged woman does. I think the latter would do very well wearing contemporary, age-appropriate pantsuits like this or even this.

But I'd certainly like to see Kate in those very attractive turquoise, red and royal blue colors. Even that olive green is quite nice.

Oh my. Jacknch, wouldn't that have been something if the urban legend was true? I can't even imagine it especially in that era. Lol.

No I'm saying that if she can't wear what people her age wear without being told that she's trying to desperately hold on to her youth than she might as well dress like one of the most prominent women of today. Oh Mary and Letizia are middle-age women. They are 41 year old.

Yes, the very unprominent Mary and Letizia are absolutely ancient and their clothes do look absolutely ridiculous on them since they're desperately holding onto their youth. Shame on them! Kate should definitely avoid at all costs styles like these that would make her look like an old woman. After all, the 66-year-old Hilary Clinton is the only choice in town.

Mary and Letizia married in their early-30's. And wore pantsuits. They didn't look like nuns, either. Kate would look great in a pantsuit.

Perhaps Anne has a few groovy pantsuits left over from the 70's? That royal lady never gets rid of anything. She could loan a few to Kate. A little alteration here and there then watch the fashion reporters praise her retro and thrifty style.
