There is a secret trick Kate Middleton uses all the time to ensure that she is camera ready for the paparazzi, and you can use it too for candid photographs.


The Duchess of Cambridge is constantly attended royal engagements and is one of the most famous women in the world, meaning that she is also one of the most photographed people in the world. While there are a number of styling tips Kate Middleton relies on for her signature polished look, Kate is also fantastic at posing for the camera - even in paparazzi photos. So how does Kate Middleton manage to look so good in every photo that's taken of her?

Miranda Holder, a fashion and style expert who specializes in celebrity and Royal style, took to social media to explain a hack used by the Duchess of Cambridge so that she looks perfect in every photo.

''Have you ever wondered why Kate Middleton looks so stunning in her photographs? Because she does - in every single one. Well, the Duchess of Cambridge has had some media training and I'm going to share a cheeky little style hack that she uses every single time, without fail," said Miranda.

The expert then explained, "She has simply been trained to always keep her chin parallel to the ground. She doesn't tilt it down, she doesn't tilt it up, and that ensures a flattering photograph every single time."

In a follow-up video the stylist explained why the trick works and it isn't just because the Duchess of Cambridge is so beautiful. 

"You can be the most gorgeous person in the world and still get a horrific photograph, so it really is all about your relationship to the camera and where you place your jaw. If it is too low, it's not good, if it's too high, definitely not good - we don't want to see your nostrils!" said the expert.

"Kate uses all of this training and more," concluded Miranda as she added, "and it works, give it a go!"
