The Duchess Of Cambridge Shows Us How To Kiss In A Fascinator

Watch and learn.

Being a royal means using your platform to spread awareness, touring the world and being a voice for your country. At times, it also means wearing elaborate, sometimes nonsensical hats to various social gatherings.

As if simply wearing these hats wasn't a job enough in itself, some royals, like the Duchess of Cambridge, for example, also have to greet people wearing said hats -- all while keeping it on their head and looking poised.

Of course, the media phenomenon formerly known as Kate Middleton has undoubtedly become a pro at this after years of engagements and countless kisses.

Take her appearance at day two of Royal Ascot on Wednesday -- her first appearance ever at the horse racing extravaganza -- wearing a hat by Jane Taylor. Watch as she leans forward to greet Princess Anne with the utmost grace and ease, their hats fitting perfectly together like two royal puzzle pieces:
