Members of the royal family often find themselves in unpleasant situations.

When we think of royal wardrobe, we imagine a high level of style and class. And while royal clothes may look impressive, they are not always comfortable. Sometimes they can lead to unpleasant situations

Let's take a look at some of the most interesting stories about the embarrassments of the royal family related to their wardrobe. Details are in the OBOZREVATEL article.

1. Elizabeth II's double failure

In March 2002, Queen Elizabeth II arrived to celebrate the 70th birthday of King  Constantine II of Greece. At that time, Her Highness faced two problems at once, neither of which was her fault. First, one of the guests accidentally spilled coffee on her bright blue dress. The stains could not be cleaned up quickly, so some of the photos showed the Queen with dark spots on her outfit. That evening, the strap of Elizabeth's bag broke.


2. Prince Philip forgot he was not wearing trousers

In 2012, Prince Philip and his wife Elizabeth II attended the Highland Games, a traditional sporting event in Scotland. On this occasion, the distinguished guest wore a Scottish kilt (according to local tradition, no underwear is worn under it). At one point, Philip was so engrossed in the spectacular game that he forgot about his skirt and spread his legs wide. The paparazzi managed to capture this moment on camera. At subsequent similar events, the Queen's husband sat with a blanket over his legs to prevent an unpleasant situation from happening again.


3. Kate's heel got stuck

In 2013, Princess Kate Middleton of Wales and Prince William attended the St Patrick's Day parade. Then the Duchess got her heel stuck in a grate. Fortunately, her husband was there to help her get out of the unpleasant situation in an elegant way. He held his wife's hand while she freed the shoe from the "trap".


4. Meghan's translucent skirt

In 2018, the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle made a public appearance in a translucent navy blue Givenchy skirt that showed off her underwear. This elegant and revealing look sparked a lot of discussion in the media and on social media, but many also noted her exquisite taste in fashion and style.


5. Princess Marie lost her shoe

Princess Marie, Princess of Denmark and Countess of Montpellier, met King Willem-Alexander during an official visit to the Netherlands. The lady curtsied, and the paparazzi noticed that one of her designer shoes had fallen off her foot.
