LONDON —

Fashion icon Kate Middleton won’t be having anymore wardrobe malfunctions if Queen Elizabeth has her way.

According to The Mail on Sunday, the queen has ordered the Duchess of Cambridge to  wear lower hemlines during a 3½-week trip to Australia this spring.

The royal makeover won’t just focus on toning down Kate’s leggy style. The duchess also will wear more tiaras and statement jewelry “favored by the Queen and Queen Mother,” the Mail reported.
