While most of us don’t exactly associate hairnets with elegance, the Duchess of Cambridge uses them all the time. We don’t know if she is obliged to do so or if she chooses to; whatever the reason is, this royal beauty hack works. Kate Middleton loves her chignon bun style and uses a hairnet to keep wild strands of hair from popping out.
Above, the Duchess wears her signature chignon bun and covers it with her trusty hairnet while attending Easter Day Service at Windsor Castle. She tops the look with a cream-colored cap with a bow. Whatever she has on, she manages to nail it.
Use Hats to Protect Your Hair
A hat can be a gorgeous accessory or a shield to protect your locks. Kate Middleton also uses the hat trick to keep her hair from blowing in her face, especially since she’s often carrying one of her children. With beautiful-looking hair, she wouldn't want to get it damaged by too much sun or strong winds. But the hat trick has been used for decades, especially by the beloved Princess of Wales.

Black Is Only for Funerals
As serious and elegant as "The Crown" outfits may be, there is a protocol in place that states the Royal family should only wear black when attending a funeral. Every Royal should always travel with at least one black outfit in case of any emergency situations. There is not such thing as attending a funeral in any other shade.
For the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, Queen Consort Camilla wore traditional black attire, with an astonishing piece of jewelry to adorn the all-black look. On the left of her black suit, one can see Queen Victoria’s Hesse Diamond Jubilee brooch. She topped the look with a black veiled hat.
Striking Colors that Capture Looks
One might think that the royals are probably more suited to wearing classic colors, like beige, white, brown, or grey. However, the late Queen Elizabeth II was known for loving bright, solid colors. She can be seen below dressed in a bright blue suit and hat from head to toe.
Apart from loving the tones, there’s another reason for the use of bright colors – the Queen wanted to be easily spotted when she was out in the town. In a sea of royals, gorgeous princesses accompanied by charming princesses, one must do whatever one can to be seen and noticed.
Wear Weights on Your Hems
We all love that iconic pic of Marylin Monroe with her skirt being blown up, but in the Royal world, this would be a huge no-no. So, how do you avoid this when you’re constantly wearing dresses in a place with really bad weather? You would sew dressmaking (or old curtain) weights in your hems, just like Kate Middleton does.
