The stylish Royal, who is known for her sophisticated style, often carries a small clutch bag to complete her outfits – and now we know why.
In an Instagram video, Myka noted that Kate often holds her stylish bag in two hands, keeping it positioned at the front of her body.
According to Myka, "This pose is great for you to use, especially if you're nervous because it gives you something to do with your hands.
"This is Kate's go-to pose whenever she's carrying a clutch and walking or speaking to others."
The 'Cambridge Carry' is perfect for people who never know what to do with their hands – and it can be done while sitting or standing.
Breaking down how to emulate Kate's poised pose at home, Myka said: "When you're walking, make sure your shoulders are rolled back and your clutch is being carried in front of you.
"When you're standing, make sure your toes are pointed forward and together
make sure your hands are together, and your fingers are facing down and together.
"When practising this pose, make sure you don't hold your clutch with one hand – two hands is key."
As Myka explains, the pose is best executed with two hands, as holding a clutch bag single-handedly can make your arm look tense.
Meanwhile, sticking your clutch bag under one arm might feel convenient, but Myka says this is a total 'don't'.
So there you have it – one way to look like a princess without spending a single penny.
