With Prince William and Duchess Catherine‘s upcoming tour of Canada and California just a week away, it sounds like Kate may have her hands full with organizing her 40-outfit wardrobe.
According to Grazia Daily (via The Daily Mail), Kate has apparently sought additional direction from a few fashion experts at Selfridges and Harvey Nichols in London.
“Where a personal shopper will help you to pick out outfits under your direction, a stylist will be more creative and will direct your style,” Grazia printed. “[This] is interesting in terms of Kate because it’s another mark of how confident she is in being able to style herself – confidence which is very well-founded, if her recent sartorial choices are anything to go by.”
Between the personal shoppers and the supposed discussions of including select designer items, perhaps Kate should have hired a stylist after all? The royal newlyweds’ first official trip as a married couple will see them traveling with small staff, including Kate’s hairdresser, James Pryce.
