Tights are an absolute godsend during the winter months but every woman knows how much of a sartorial struggle they can be.
Whether they're slipping down, twisting around or wreaking havoc with our footwear choices, they're not the easiest accessory.
Thank goodness, then, that Kate Middleton has shared the genius styling hack she employs to ensure her tights stay in place.
The pregnant royal was pictured with sticky pads inside her heels, which helps keep her feet in place when she dons tights and stilettos.
The handy little pads are available at John Lewis for a purse-friendly £5.
Whether she's wearing classic black tights or subtle nude ones, Kate is never seen without a pair of hosiery - and for good reason.
According to a royal insider, members of the royal family are required to wear tights during public engagements.
The royals have plenty of wardrobe wizardry up their sleeves. The Queen is known for fixing tiny weights into her hemlines to stop her skirts and dresses blowing up - a trick she passed on to the Duchess - and she also employs someone to break her heels in for her.
Take note, ladies.
