For as long as she’s been in the public eye, we’ve rarely – if ever – seen Kate Middleton looking anything but polished and put-together. Not a strand of hair out of place, not a telltale bag under the eye, nothing.
Now, thanks to some curious fans in Poland, we know exactly how the Duchess of Cambridge manages to look so radiant all the time.
It’s… drum roll, please… makeup. Well, that’s what the 35-year-old wants us to think, anyway.

During the royal tour of Poland, which kicked off in Warsaw on Monday, Kate met with some local students who happened to be great admirers of hers.
However, as the group heaped compliments on their idol, she was quick to deflect.
“We were telling her that she is beautiful and perfect, but she said it’s not true – it’s just the make-up,” 21-year-old Magda Mordaka told press.

Well, sure – makeup helps anyone feel a little brighter in the face. But we reckon she’s being a little modest here.
This wasn’t the only comment made by the Duchess during the five-day tour that’s grabbed media attention.
During a reception in the Polish capital, the mum of two was presented with a children’s toy – one specifically designed to soothe babies.

On learning the toy was a bit young for her children Prince George, three, and Princess Charlotte, two, Kate turned to her husband and quipped, “We will just have to have more babies.”
Oh, Kate – you should know better than to joke about these things in public. It’s probably only a matter of minutes before a tabloid twists those words into a royal pregnancy announcement.
