Kate Middleton Makes Royal Decree: Leggings Are Pants

And it made us adore her all the more

As if we needed another reason to love Kate Middleton: This weekend, she was spotted running all over the city of London in leggings, giving us official proof that even princesses count them as pants.

Yep, the Duchess of Cambridge rocked them while shopping at her local Lululemon. (She probably was in there to stock up on a fresh supply of stretch, obviously.) Her royal trick to keeping the look sleek, not sloppy: by pairing it with a structured purse, jacket and her signature bouncy blowout.

The lesson? You can wear leggings as pants--as long as you wash your hair. Done.
