Kate stepped out in an all-red dress, coat and cape ensemble on November 21, to welcome the president with Prince William in London, kicking off a three-day state visit.
The princess was photographed during a ceremonial military event with King Charles, Queen Camilla and the official U.K. and Korean delegations. Members of the press and social media users commented on her legs, which at points were visible while walking or emerging from cars.
On Wednesday, Princess Kate was seen stepping down from her car with the headline: “How Kate Got Those Stunning Sculpted Legs.”
This was followed by an article written by aesthetics expert Alice Hart-Davis, titled: “CrossFit, Reformer Pilates…even her kneecaps are lovely! Princess Kate shows a flash of leg as she gets out of her car. But WHAT a leg!”
Fans of the princess also took to social media to discuss the moment, with a number of posters contrasting the praise with criticism faced by Meghan when she wore dresses with hemlines that fell above the knee.
Royal blogging page wrote of the outfit: “I love this moment for Kate, but can’t help but think how it truly pays to be white and thin, cuz I remember notable royal commentators up in arms about Meghan showing some leg at the Hamilton show when she was a working royal. One even made a comment she wishes she could tug it down to her knees.”
“Man, if this were Meghan everyone would say she’s attention starved, inappropriate, breaking royal protocol due to showing her bare legs,” wrote another fan on X (formerly Twitter) “But Kate the Great can do no wrong. The double standard is why people believe Brits are racist.”
