Duchess narrowly avoids fashion mishap

Kate Middleton came close to suffering a wardrobe malfunction today.

The hem of the Duchess of Cambridge‘s navy frock was lifted by the wind as she crouched to speak to a young fan in Canary Wharf.

Kate, 31, – who was visiting children’s charity Place2Be – styled her chic above-the-knee number with a smart blue blazer and pointed courts.

By pinning her long brown layers back at the sides, Prince William‘s pretty wife managed to keep her perfect hair in place despite the blustery conditions.

The trip marks Kate‘s second public appearance in the capital this week.

She joined Wills, 31, at Only Connect‘s head office yesterday to learn what the organisation does to help former prisoners and young people at risk of offending.
