Kate and William are known to enjoy traveling, whether it be for engagements in the US and other parts of the world, or going to Africa on holiday. Wherever you are traveling to this holiday season and beyond, here are some tips and tricks to maintain a regal elegance even when you are 30,000 feet above the ground.
- First and foremost, dress nicely. Even though you will just be sitting on an airplane, you still have the opportunity to look fantastic. Take this example from Kate. Skinny pants, a comfy sweater, and a patterned scarf. It is comfortable, casual, and elegant all at the same time.
- Pack lightly. Your day of travel will go so much more smoothly if you do not have seven bags to be worried about. I think it is best to stick to one rolling suitcase that you can check when you get there and a large handbag to carry on the plane with you to hold all of your essentials. If you have a black rolling suitcase, it also helps to tie a fun and colorful ribbon to it so that you can easily spot it at baggage claim.
- Arrive early. This way, you can get through security without stressing and you will be able to maintain your composure. Plus, once you get to your gate, you can relax with a latte and read a magazine.
- Be ready for security. Check the TSA website before you leave to know all the rules. Then you can glide through security with an air of knowledge and sophistication.
- Drink lots of water while on the airplane. This will keep your skin hydrated and keep you looking fresh so that you are ready for the next adventure when you arrive at your destination.
- If there is a screaming baby on the plane, try your best to not make frustrated groans and sighs. It will only make the mother feel worse, and she is already embarrassed. If you are feeling generous, perhaps you could even offer to help her. She would definitely appreciate it.
- Once the plane lands and everyone is rushing to get off the airplane to make connections, be sure to not push others. It is easy to want to get off the plane as quickly as possible, but it is best to remain gracious and polite and get off when it is your turn.
- Finally, bring things along with you that will help you de-stress. Whether that’s a book, a magazine, or your iPod, make sure you have it. This way, if you are feeling stressed, you can grab one of these things and your traveling experience will be greatly improved.
