The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is one of the world’s most renowned style icons of all time. The Duchess never steps out looking anything less than flawless and has created a defined style filled with preppy blazers and chic tea dresses. Although we love the polished and feminine vibe of her look, she surprisingly didn’t always dress this way! While dating Prince William and prior to the engagement it was clear that Middleton was still quite young and naive when it came to royal etiquette, and her clothing definitely reflected that. We still appreciate the style moments where Kate stepped out in short hemlines and baseball caps, but we have an inkling that the Queen wouldn’t feel the same! Follow along as we recall 20 risky Kate Middleton looks that we’re sure the Queen found quite questionable!
