Between Meghan Markle’s latest outfit combination, the “Meghan” jeans that gained a 400-person waiting list in under 24 hours, and Gary Janetti’s latest Markle meme, the soon-to-be royal draws a fair share of our time these days. In our latest photo research binge, we not only revealed the elongating heels she wears on repeat but also caught onto the former actress’s go-to pose. We’re dubbing it the “princess pose,” which, as you can see below, is quite easy to re-create. All you have to do is cross your feet right at the ankle, and voilà! You’ve accomplished the Markle-approved pose for any photo opp.
This failproof trick has been Markle’s photogenic secret since 2013, as you can see below, where the style muse is posing on the red carpet for the world premier of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in London. From red carpet moments to press appearances, this simple position has become the bride-to-be’s signature stance. See all the proof ahead.
Follow Markle’s lead and put your weight on your front foot to really accentuate the princess pose.
As Markle exemplifies here, the easiest way to pull of the pose is to tightly cross your feet at the ankles.
You can also add to the pose by keeping your hands low and tightly held together.
The Markle-approved stance is also a great way to show off your statement shoes.
Here the soon-to-be royal is wearing her go-to elongating heels.
Further proof the low hand placement never fails.
By slightly squaring your hips to face the camera, you’ll lend a photogenic and perfectly effortless pose each time.
