While some might say Kate Middleton's feet haven't touched the ground since she wed Prince William back in 2010, a new image of the Duchess has her looking like she is literally levitating.

Snapped at the 100th anniversary celebrations of the Somme last week, the 34-year-old is seen walking behind British Prime Minister David Cameron. However, she appears to be mid-air, with a notable gap between her black heels and the gravel terrain.

But a closer look at the image, taken by photographer Chris Radburn, reveals her feet are in fact firmly on the ground.

A lack of shadowing and the positioning of Cameron's feet in the foreground have created Kate's floating image.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a lace Jenny Packham dress and was accompanied by Prince William and Prince Harry at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Memorial in Thiepval, France, for the centenary commemorations last week.
