While Kate always lands on our best dressed list not everyone is pleased with her style! A new report claims that Queen Elizabeth is making some changes to Kate’s wardrobe before she heads out for her Australian tour.
When Kate Middleton visits Australia in April, there will be some changes — and most noticeably to her hemline! Queen Elizabeth requested that Kate wear longer hemlines and more tiaras — a royal staple that both the Queen and Queen Mother have enjoyed wearing.
Kate Middleton Australian Tour — Queen Orders Makeover:
Vanity Fair royal correspondent, Katie Nicholl, wrote a piece in The Daily Mail, claiming close sources have told her: “This trip will be about Kate appearing more Royal than ever – you can expect to see a lot more tiaras and the Queen will be watching closely.” Along with this new ‘Royal’ change, her hemlines will be longer, she’ll rock more statement jewelry — and a ton more tiaras!
So, how will the royals go about transforming Kate’s look? The Queen is lending her personal dresser, Angela Kelly, to Kate so she has help packing and preparing for her trip to Australia — and that includes helping her select jewels from the Queen’s personal collection. “Angela has been asked to start selecting jewels ahead of the trip,” says a Palace source.
Kate Middleton Prepares For Australian Tour:
Kate will reportedly still have her signature hairstylist, Amanda Cook Tucker, by her side as she departs — in fact, Amanda even had to undergo training to learn how to fasten a tiara so that she can perfect Kate’s new ‘do!
Kate’s trip will include a slew of outfit changes, (sometimes up to four a day!), on the three-and-a-half week trip. The Duchess does still have a say in her looks and has reportedly reached out to her favorite designers, (including Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and Alice Temperley), to create bespoke gowns and dresses.
We are expecting to still see Kate’s signature style, just a bit tailored. Gone will be the frilly, short hemlines and flouncy dresses! You can’t go against the Queen’s wishes, after all! Are you excited to see what Kate will be wearing?
