The Secret Why Kate Middleton Never Looks Bad in Photos [WATCH VIDEO]

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton never seems to look bad in all the photos taken of her thus far. There’s a secret to the photogenic quality of her pictures that anyone can copy if they wanted to. Read on to learn more about this scoop.

The Duchess of Cambridge has a secret to looking fabulous in all photos taken of her. While good genes and a crew of dressers and stylists may have something to do with her outward appearance, evidence of her secret can be noted even in dated photographs of her before she even married her duke, Prince William.


Middleton has a secret to never having a bad photo, and it’s not just natural beauty or royalness of persona.

If one takes a look at all images taken of Middleton, not one of them is of her actually looking at the camera. It even appears the Duchess intentionally avoids making eye contact with a lens. And it’s not because she’s shy.

“The Duchess of Cambridge is smart because she manages to avoid eye contact with the cameras at all times, making it impossible for any magazine to ever run a picture of her on the cover that looks anything other than incidental,” a Tatler editor notes, as published on the Guardian.

This savvy trick ensures that every Middleton photograph is never seen as looking posed, awkward and contrived. She always seems to be naturally smiling, talking, laughing or interacting with other people; and she has never been photographed looking bored or with her eyes half-shut. Even her eye-roll photographs are adorable.

In every case, it’s as if photographers have caught an image of the Duchess midframe, making her look effortlessly perfect and approachable and ever just so slightly aloof.

The Duchess is aware she’s being photographed, and she makes it a point never to make eye contact with the lens, and it makes for ultra flattering photos.

Anyone who knows the trick can try it and cultivate it to a very carefully honed photogenic prowess over time. This is a top picture-taking trick that can make anyone look good, as if all photos taken were accidental and spontaneous.

Here’s a video of Kate Middleton with her husband in New York, where she interacts with cameras as if she’s unaware of them:
