7 Ways To Tell If You're Actually A Princess

Think you can't spot a princess from a mile away? Think again.

There are plenty of ways to pick out a royal, whether she be a princess, queen or duchess, simply by taking one look at her outfit. Yup, there's an unofficial criteria to getting dressed each morning that separates us plebes from princesses -- in fact, some of you non-royals may just fall into many of these categories, too. Herewith, seven ways to tell if you're actually a princess.*

1. When you wear something, everyone wants it, too.

2. You rock nude pantyhose.

3. They're not "hats" -- they're "fascinators."

4. You don't go to the salon for blowouts, the blowouts come to you.

5. Your closet is filled with matchy-matchy monochromatic outfits -- hey, solids are classic.

7. Your haircuts are major.

*We're using the term "princess" to include queens who used to be princesses, too (though it's worth noting that Kate Middleton did, in fact, list her occupation as "princess" on Prince George's birth certificate).

CORRECTION: Language has been amended to indicate that "princess" is listed as the duchess of Cambridge's occupation on her son's birth certificate and not as her official title.
