Lest you forgot that Kate Middleton is always the picture of poise and grace, she handled an awkward situation like a boss on Wednesday. While she was visiting a new addiction center in Wickford, Kate's heel got stuck in a grate as she was greeting Vice Lord Lieutenant of Essex Jonathan Douglas-Hughes -- and it clearly was no sweat off her royal back. 

But still. Kate Middleton's heel got stuck in a grate!

  • The duchess of course was able to easily wriggle her shoe out from the grate, all while smiling -- and thankfully, not falling.

  • The duchess quickly laughed off the incident, even making a joke to Jonathan Douglas-Hughes, who famously took a tumble in front of her in 2016.

    “I reminded her [about the fall]," Douglas-Hughes told People. "My wife told her that she would ensure I didn’t do it again. Then she caught her heel. She said, 'Oh ... do the same as you!'"


  • Oh, that Kate. She can even turn a super awkward situation into something adorable.


    They don't call her "princess" for nothing!
