Kate Middleton's travel hack has been revealed and although it's totally genius—it's probably not that accessible for the average person.


Kate Middleton's dresses are a constant obsession for many fashion fans. Examples like Kate Middleton’s hot pink Vampire’s Wife dress, which looked perfect even after a long haul flight, make one wonder—what's her secret?!

She's not pulling out any flat iron clothes hacks like your average traveler, in fact, the Duchess' wardrobe travels in style—in its own seat!

During a Channel 5 documentary, Secrets of the Royal Flight, royal correspondent Emily Andrews spilled the beans on this luxury. Discussing her experience on the show, which details what it's like to travel as one of The Firm, Emily said she'd, "been on a plane where Kate's dresses had their own seat to make sure they were kept flat."

The royal correspondent added sagely, "They are not going to be shoved in the hold just to be squashed by everyone else's."

Well, of all the tips for long-haul flights, this one may be slightly beyond your average traveler! However, keeping in mind the amount of pressure the Duchess must feel, to look perfect during public engagements, it's no wonder her clothes get preferential treatment.

Kate Middleton's glossy hair also seems to survive the dehydrating effects of air travel, but that's not all. How the Duchess of Cambridge's make-up and skincare products also manage to keep her looking tip-top, during her grueling schedule, will never cease to amaze!

As time goes on and her star grows, only time will tell if concerns that Kate Middleton’s royal rise risks overshadowing Duchess Camilla and Prince Charles come to pass.
