The Queen has a genius fashion hack to make sure she avoids a particularly embarrassing wardrobe malfunction—and it's bound to come in handy as Storm Dudley hits.
- The Queen relies on a clever fashion trick to make sure she's never left red-faced by a wardrobe mishap on a windy day, with royal insiders revealing the genius trick she uses to avoid her skirt blowing up in the wind.
- With Storm Dudley and Storm Eunice set to batter the UK with winds of up to 100mph this week, there's never been a better time to take note from the Queen and her fashion aides.
- This royal news comes after an unearthed photo of Prince William and Prince Harry as kids proved they're the spitting image of Princess Charlotte and Archie.
According to a royal courtier, Her Majesty and other female members of The Firm use secret weights, sewn into their clothes, to ensure that gusts of wind never leave them with their skirts flailing around their shoulders, exposing their underwear.
Small weights, no heavier than an ounce each, are reportedly sewn into the hems of the Queen's handmade clothes, with the likes of Kate Middleton, who has some nifty underwear tricks up her sleeve, and Duchess Camilla also said to use the smart trick.
"The beauty of a handmade outfit is that it hangs just right but, of course, we have a few tricks up our sleeve," royal courtier, Stewart Parvin, told the Mail Online.
"I just pop a couple of weights into the hemline of her dresses and coats and it makes them hang beautifully," the royal staff member added.
"If there is a flap in the coat then I will sew in one on each side of the split to even it up.
"And sometimes if she is wearing a lightweight chiffon skirt I will sew in a smaller lead weight the size of a pea or even a length of chain."
