After all the times the wind has come for the royal women and left them exposed to prying eyes and camera lenses, it’s only fair that it happens to the men, too. The prince had his coattails blown up in the wind, just as he was bending over to help move this floral arrangement.
The combination of the wind and awkward pose made the photo look a bit unflattering. Although unlike the women in skirts and dresses, the prince wasn’t risking exposing himself, at least.
Iconic Movie Moment
Kate Middleton found herself seeing through the eyes of Marilyn Monroe when her Emilia Wickstead dress blew up in a gust of wind in front of a crowd of people. The moment happened at the National War Memorial in India.
She fought with the wind throughout the majority of the royal tour and can be seen trying to hold her dress down – unsuccessfully, of course! Fortunately, she kept her composure and simply pat it back down each time it tried escaping gravity.
While most of the wardrobe mishaps on this list happened at no fault of the actual royal, the same can’t be said for this one. While in Birmingham with the prince in 2018, the duchess wore a new tailored J. Crew coat that looks a little – stiff. That’s because she didn’t remove the X-stitch that holds the bottom of the coat together to hold the vent together before it’s sold. But it is supposed to be taken out before it's worn.
Although, as much as fashionistas may have noticed the faux pas, it didn’t seem to bother the masses, who ended up buying so many of the coats that J. Crew was sold out.
Camilla, Queen Consort, is known for her big heart. She is the patron of several non-profit organizations, including Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, Trinity Hospice, and Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centers. But she’s also known for having a sleek sense of fashion. This was still true on this day, but the wind got to her and caused the skirt of her dress to fly up during this public appearance.
At the same time, her hat kept trying to blow off of her head. But, like most royals, she remained composed and simply held them down and kept moving.
Singing the Blues
This is another one of those “mishaps” that more than likely was done intentionally. It would be very hard to not notice that the top of your skirt was entirely sheer. Did she not look at herself in a mirror before she walked out of the house?
And one of her staff would have surely told her they could see her underwear before she left? And then there’s the fact the underwear is a pair of matching briefs. Hey, in any case, the Givenchy outfit looks great on her – but there’s no way she didn’t know it was sheer.
