Spanx very much! Princess Beatrice shows off support tights at Queen Mother memorial

She may have recently lost two stone, but Princess Beatrice was determined not to have a VPL (visible panty line) at a memorial for the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret - by donning a pair of supportive Spanx.

The split at the back of her pretty floral Paul Smith dress inadvertently gave her style secret away.

She teamed the flower power frock with a Sarah Davis fascinator and LK Bennett heels for the service at St George's Chapel in Windsor.

Of course, the princess is in good company among fans of the figure-shaping shorts and tights, with everyone from Beyoncé to Sarah Jessica Parker having previously flashed theirs.

And the brand is so successful that, at 41, its founder, Sara Blakely, was recently the youngest self-made woman to make it on to the Forbes' Billionaires list.

Princess Beatrice was joined by a host of other royal family members for the service, apart from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who are enjoying a skiing holiday in Switzerland.

If I was Princess Beatrice and I knew that lots of cameras would be trained on me at this event, I'd wear anything that would make me look good and so deflect any cruel comments from the press. I'm no great fan of her mother or father, but she has had to live with constant criticism of her parents and she knows how unkind the press can be. The public can wear what we want when we are out and about and what we are most comfortable in without our picture appearing in the press, but she has to think about what she wears incase unflattering pictures and screaming headlines appear in the newspapers. I think she looks fine.

So why the big fuss over this?
