The Most Inappropriate Royal Outfits

Island Mix Up
When Prince William and Kate Middleton visited the Solomon Islands, they were supposed to wear traditional Solomon Island outfits. However, their welcoming committee accidentally gave them clothing native to the Cook Islands, some 3,000 miles away — whoops.
Nazi Snafu
Prince Harry was quite the royal rebel in his youth, but he made a fashion blunder in 2005 that simply went too far. A photo of Harry wearing a Nazi costume at a friend's birthday party — swastika armband and all — become infamous after it debuted on the cover of British tabloid The Sun.
Middleton Or Monroe?
When visiting Australia in 2014, a rogue gust of wind blew up Kate Middleton's modest and classy skirt, creating an unintentional Marilyn Monroe-style moment. Of course, photographers took snapshots, and the photos were sent overseas and sold for an unspecified amount.
Fur Pas
PETA publicly slammed Kate when she wore a pair of possum fur-lined Restelli Guanti gloves. Middleton is not the first member of the royal family to wear fur, but she may be the last, given the controversy — plus, King Edward III actually banned royals from wearing fur back in 1137(!).
Skirt Rules
According to Harper's Bazaar, avoiding short skirts is "practically a no-brainer" for the royal family. However, younger royal Princess Eugenie wore an above-the-knee dress at the Commonwealth Youth Forum in April 2018, and wardrobe stickler Queen Elizabeth was likely not pleased.
