Kate Middleton recently wore an elegant trouser suit as she met with crew members from HMS Glasgow - but you may have missed the subtle fashion hack that helped create a streamlined silhouette on the day.


The Princess of Wales always looks stunning in photographs, so it's no wonder she's picked up a few fashion and beauty hacks along the way.

Recently, we discovered Kate Middleton's trick for always looking flawless in paparazzi photos (keeping her chin parallel to the ground) and Catherine's travel hack for always looking pristine (her dresses have their own seat!) Plus, we're well versed in the Princess of Wales' trusty trick for staying secure in heels (ladder-resistant tights). 

But during a recent royal engagement at Windsor Castle, Catherine's sleek trouser suit inspired by the navy outfit gave us some insight into another fashion hack for sleek and stylish dressing.

Earlier this month, when Princess Catherine made an appearance for a surprise engagement to meet the Royal Navy Ship's Company of HMS Glasgow, she wowed in an elegant trouser suit with - what looked like - a simple white shirt underneath, tucked into her fitted trousers perfectly.

However, her elegant white shirt wasn't actually a shirt at all - but the 'Cupro Shirt' bodysuit from British brand Holland Cooper, as reported by HELLO! The bodysuit retails at $164/£149 and is still in stock on the brand's website in small, medium, and large sizes.
