Being the future queen of England does seem cool, but it doesn't exactly leave a woman much room to get a little racy with fashion. Kate Middleton, amid all her royal duties, tends to keep her gorgeous bod under wraps with high necklines and the perfect hem. However, sometimes the duchess doesn't hold back, and she does show a little bit of skin.

Just like her mom-in-law Princess Diana, Kate Middleton is always an icon of style and sophistication. However, that doesn't mean she hasn't dared to push the uptight rules of royal style from time to time. From leggy side slits on long, gorgeous gowns and slightly shorter hemlines that don't cover the knees to wide open necklines for displaying the sparkly royal jewels, Kate Middleton has worn many bold, feminine styles.

Truthfully, we love when Kate makes the queen's eyes roll by showing off a bit of skin. Lord knows she looks good doing it! But truthfully, our favorite fashion moments of all are the times she's worn a sexy sleeveless blouse or a chic, striped cotton tee, just because it was practical. Yessss, queen. Show us the way. 

Let's take a look at a bunch of the times Kate took a less buttoned-up approach to fashion.
