The Duchess of Cambridge hasn't been seen at many royal engagements this year, because of the pandemic. However, before lockdown, she was always immaculately dressed for every occasion - and this normally meant pairing heels with her outfits.

Of course, being a royal she needs to look and feel comfortable in her heels - so she uses this one trick to make sure she stays upright all day.

The £6 sheer tights, from John Lewis & Partners, have sticky pads on the sole, which stick to the inside of her heels, helping her feel more stable.

The Barely There Tights, from John Lewis & Partners, are just £6 and have added Lycra for stretch and comfort, while they also have the essential gel non slip grips on the sole - helping her feel steady in her heels.

And it's not just Kate that loves them, customers of John Lewis have also been raving about the tights, which come in black and beige.

One wrote: ‘Wore these for my daughter’s wedding as I didn’t really want to look as though I had tights on. They gave my legs a smooth, but bare look too. Love them.’

While another said: ‘Lovely natural coloured tights with sheer appearance. Non-slip sole is brilliant with high heels.’
