Both Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are incredibly charming and elegant women with an impeccable sense of style and good manners. But their ability to look magnificent in all pictures is probably one of their most amazing features. It’s really hard to find even a couple of bad photos of them. We’ve learned that it’s not magic that makes them look perfect, but rather, some clever tricks.
whatshappend has carefully studied these 2 women’s habits and found 11 features that will help you look good in every photo.
11. The natural look
No matter what these ladies do, whether they’re participating in an official meeting or spending time with their families, their makeup is always minimal and natural. Smooth tones, neutral lipstick, and some highlighter help the Duchesses look natural, yet fascinating.
10. Avoiding eye contact
Kate Middleton doesn’t usually look directly at the camera. In most photos, she looks to the side. Thus, all her photos look flawless, especially if they’re taken in motion.
9. Slightly tilting the head
When it comes to good photos, Meghan Markle knows what to do. We often see her slightly tilting her head in pictures. Try Meghan’s trick to find your perfect angle.
8. Good posture
A straight and relaxed back and the chin parallel to the floor are tiny but extremely important features that give the women their elegant looks. It’s really complicated to have good posture while wearing high heels, but Kate deals with this challenge just perfectly with her legs and hips facing forward and an upright torso.
7. Turning the shoulders to the camera
If you straighten your shoulders and turn them exactly to the camera, you’ll accentuate your waist and make your legs look longer and slimmer.
6. Highlighting angles
You’ve probably noticed that models often slightly tilt the hip of their supporting leg and point the toes on the free leg to the floor directly in front of the supporting leg. It’s a great pose that makes your body look slimmer in front of a camera. You may also slightly bend and put together your knees to create nice accents. Meghan Markle has mastered these tricks and always looks natural.
5. Colors and materials of clothing
As a rule, the Duchesses don’t mix many different colors. But neither Kate nor Meghan are afraid to combine bright colors with classic ones. They also like to accentuate their waists by wearing belts or straps.
4. Sitting gracefully
Have you ever noticed the way Kate usually sits? She’s always elegant and graceful. Her sitting pose is known as the “duchess slant”.
The main feature of this pose is that you don’t cross your legs at the ankle, you just bring the knees and feet together while tilting the ankles to the side. This pose was possibly inspired by Princess Diana.
Another well-known pose is the “Cambridge cross” that Kate also likes to demonstrate.
Undoubtedly, Meghan’s smile is enchanting. It’s neither dull nor provoking. You can hardly find a photo where the Duchess of Sussex doesn’t look nice and friendly even though paparazzi follow her everywhere.
2. The hands
Have you ever faced the problem of not knowing what to do with your hands in photos? The Duchess of Cambridge knows a graceful solution. She always carries a small purse or holds one hand in another one and gathers her hands in front of her.
Pay attention to her hands: they’re relaxed and “light.” The palm of one hand just covers the wrist of the other or she just gathers her fingers.
1. Showing accessories
We don’t know whether Meghan purposely shows her gorgeous ring or not, but we think it’s fine if your accessory suits your image and you want to show it off. Your intention won’t spoil a picture.
