William and Kate later come up to meet the winners and Allison said she wasn't sure if protocol required her to curtsy.
'I realize when they started going around that I had taken my shoes off. I was about to meet the royal couple Fred Flintstones-style, barefeet,' said Janney who wore a Antonio Berardi black stretch-jersey top with satin corset along with a silver skirt for her chat show appearance.
Allison said she noted that Kate was her height without high heels and the pregnant mother-of-two said she had on 'very high heels'.
