That's what Kate Middleton's latest ensemble set out to prove today during the royal's visit to the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre in London, where she was photographed in high-waisted black pants paired with pumps in the same dark shade - giving her the illusion of mile-long legs.
The Henry Fawcett Centre is a local organisation that supports young children and their families. Rather than wear the dress with them resting high upon her shoulders, the Duchess put her styling prowess to work, pulling them down for an off-the-shoulder look.
The duchess also chatted with Finesse Perry, a mother of twin girls.
Despite her expensive outfit, the Duchess did not hesitate to just take a seat on the floor and join the parents and toddlers there for a session of 'together time'. "He has got these little walkers and is bombing around in them".
Kate and Meghan exchanged a friendly kiss on the cheek while the brothers shook hands, Meghan wearing a cream coat and cream print dress with Kate wearing a red Catherine Walker coat dress. This year, the Portrait Gala will support Inspiring People: Transforming our National Portrait Gallery, a project for the complete renewal of the Gallery that will see a significant refurbishment of the building.
In a clip taken by The Daily Mail's Rebecca English, Kate can be seen telling fellow mom Kriti Batta about her youngest addition to the family, 10 month old Prince Louis and how he "bombs around" on his walker already! "You understand because your children do the same".
According to Kensington Palace, Middleton was in attendance at the children's center to learn about the Lambeth Early Action Partnership parenting program. McPhee now stars in "Waitress" on the West End and said that Markle and her friends are welcome to attend a show any time.
