Kate caught up again! Duchess of Cambridge's skirt flies up as she juggles baby George and holds onto her hat in windy Wellington

Kate caught up again! Duchess of Cambridge's skirt flies up as she juggles baby George and holds onto her hat in windy Wellington She has suffered from several 'Marilyn moments' in the past.

And once again the Duchess of Cambridge failed to tame her skirt as she touched down in a very windy Wellington, New Zealand, on Monday.

Kate's red skirt and coat were picked up in a large gust of wind as she juggled baby Prince George and held onto her hat at the same time.

Meanwhile, a hands-free William disembarked the plane looking carefree and dapper in a navy blue suit.

It's not the first time Kate has suffered from a wardrobe malfunction: her navy skirt blew up in November last year at a charity event, a feather-light Jenny Packham yellow frock almost cost Kate her modesty at Calgary Airport in September 2011, and she almost came a cropper in a floral Project D dress as she arrived at Brisbane airport in 2012.

It has been suggested that Kate should perhaps take a leaf out of the Queen's book.

Last year the Mail revealed how, despite conducting thousands of public engagements in her 60 years on the throne, the Queen’s decorum has almost never slipped.

Slipped inside the lining of each of the Queen’s exquisite hand-made outfits are a couple of small lead curtain weights, costing just £1.50 for a packet of four.

The small circular weights, measure just 1.2inches (32mm) across and weigh less than an ounce each - but prevent the royal hemline from flying away in a gust of wind.

Jenny Packham revealed that she'd received a letter recommending that very trick after pictures of Kate in her billowing yellow dress surfaced last year.

'I had a little handwritten letter from a lady in Wisconsin passionately criticising me for the primrose yellow shift dress I made for the duchess,' says Packham, who was born in Southampton, told London's Evening Standard at the time.

'She said didn't I know about putting weights around the bottom of a hem so it can't blow up?

'Well, I didn't know it was going to be worn on a windy runway - but I did think maybe in future I will put in more weighting, just in case...'

Stuart Parvin, the Queen's favourite couturier, revealed the weights he uses for her dresses are sourced from the curtain accessories section of famous Chelsea department store, Peter Jones.

Society dressmaker Mr Parvin then neatly stitches them into the hem of her garments, which prevents them from blowing up in the wind.

The surprisingly cheap trick seems to work, for the Queen has seemingly never been photographed in public looking even remotely ruffled.

‘The beauty of a handmade outfit is that it hangs just right but, of course, we have a few tricks up our sleeve,’ Mr Parvin told the Daily Mail in an exclusive interview.

‘Surprisingly, it is nothing fancy. I use curtain weights, lead weights, from Peter Jones’s curtain department. We call them penny weights.'

‘I just pop a couple into the hemline of her dresses and coats and it makes them hang beautifully. If there is a flap in the coat then I will sew in one on each side of the split to even it up. And sometimes if she is wearing a lightweight chiffon skirt I will sew in an even smaller lead weight the size of a pea or even a length of chain, rather like a dog’s chain. But the curtain weights work beautifully.’

Unfortunately not all female royals follow the Queen’s lead and have, on occasions, fallen foul of the elements.

The late Diana, Princess of Wales, the Duchess of York and her daughter, Princess Beatrice, have all suffered similar wardrobe malfunctions.

He may be only eight months old.

But Prince George made an assured appearance on his debut royal tour this morning.

Arriving in New Zealand on the first day of a three-week trip Down Under, the third in line to the throne took the windswept welcome in his stride, although he looked a little chilly in a cream jumper and shorts....
