Well if this doesn’t look like a scene right out of some action movie with Tom Cruise in it (hello, Top Gun) we don’t know what does. Unfortunately for the Princess, the moment was all too real when the skirt of her yellow Jenny Packham dress decided to go along with the wind in front of these Canadian Air Force soldiers.
They probably didn’t mind at all, but the truth is that having to hold your dress down throughout a windy day is quite a pain. Maybe next time she’ll opt for a pencil skirt or something that stays in place a little better. And hey, at least her hair looked amazing!
Tag, You’re It
Meghan Markle is one of the most talked-about women in the world, and she’s always in the public eye when she’s, well, out in public. People keep a close watch on what she’s wearing, which is how they’re able to notice when something is a little off. And on this day, when she and the prince arrived in Tonga in 2018, something was a little off — she forgot to remove the tags on her new Self Portrait dress.
She reportedly chose the bright red number to match both the flag of the country and the carpet, of course. But as lovely as she looked, the (crazy expensive) tag was a little distracting as it blew in the wind.
One of the most important things about being out in public as a woman in the royal family is being able to carry yourself with grace through any and all situations – even when something happens that’s beyond your control. And that’s exactly what Denmark’s Princess Mary did when the heel of her pumps got wedged into a crack on the sidewalk during one of her events.
She simply slid out of the shoe, gracefully lowered herself to pick it up, and had one of her men assist her while she put it back on. Then, she moved right back along with her day like it never happened. Way to handle a tricky situation, princess!
Off With Her Hat
The late Queen was no doubt one of the most perpetually composed women on the face of the planet. It seems as though she was always pulled together wherever she went. Of course, she was also human and things happend that she couldn't always avoid.
Take for instance this day back in 1979, when the wind decided to pick her hat up and try and carry it off on a wild ride. But the Queen was able to catch it before it completely blew off of her head. Who knew she had such cat-like reflexes?
This night, at King Constantine of Greece’s 70th birthday bash, The late Queen ran into a few small issues with her wardrobe – none of which were at any fault of her own. First, someone spilled coffee on her. Yes, someone spilled coffee on The Queen.
But she stood up, braving the paparazzi, and moved right along, on her way to a change of course. But on her way out, the strap of her handbag broke! Needless to say, it just wasn’t her night. Though she took it all in stride and brushed it off.
