One stylist claims it all has to do with the Duchess’ chin!

No, it's not just your imagination: Kate Middleton looks flawless in absolutely every photo taken of her. Kate, once a commoner, might actually be one of the most photogenic women in the world. Whether she is dressed casually in shorts and a top, or glammed up in a ball gown, the camera always seems to catch her perfect angle. Coincidence? According to one expert, it has nothing to do with good luck. Instead, Kate has a genius hack for looking good in every single photo.

Katie Nicholl, royal expert and author, maintains that Kate started her royal training in 2003 when she started dating her schoolmate at the University of St Andrews, Prince William. In her book Kate: The Future Queen, Nicholl maintains that watching footage of Princess Diana, William's mom helped her prep for her royal role. At the time, she was told not to interact with photographers or pose for photos. When photographers demanded her to pose, she reportedly replied: "If I do it now, then I'll have to keep doing it."

According to Holder, it's all about Kate's chin. "Well, the Duchess of Cambridge has had some media training and I'm going to share a cheeky little style hack that she uses every single time, without fail. She has simply been trained to always keep her chin parallel to the ground. She doesn't tilt it down, she doesn't tilt it up and that ensures a flattering photograph every single time," shew says in the video. 

It's All About Your "Relationship to the Camera"

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attend a special event hosted by His Highness The Aga Khan at the Aga Khan Centre.

According to Holder, after sharing the video people called bluff on her theory. "A whole load of you have come back saying it's because she's good looking, she's wealthy, she's got a stylists. That's not true," she responded in a follow-up video. "From years of working with supermodels, celebrities and models, you can be the most gorgeous person in the world and still get a horrific photograph. So it really is all about your relationship to the camera and where you place your jaw. If it's too low it's not good, if it's too high definitely not good."
