It turns out, Kate uses the very clever hack of wearing some tights with some sticky pads on the sole, to hold everything in place.

They hail from one of her favourite high street stores, John Lewis. She turns to the Barely There Tights by the brand, with include gel non slip grips on the sole - keeping her shoes firmly in place.

The non-slip, skin-coloured tights are still available online on the John Lewis website. And if tan tights aren't your bag, you can also buy them in a darker beige or black colour.

The design also ensures that your tights don't ride down your legs, meaning Kate never falls victim to baggy tights!

John Lewis customers have praised the tights for their natural look, and for the handy little grip detail.

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.'

Will you be picking up the Kate Middleton tights then?
