It takes a lot of work to look like Kate Middleton.
When Kate Middleton and Prince William landed in Canada on Saturday, they weren't alone.
Aside from their two children, Prince George (three) and Princess Charlotte (one), they were accompanied by a crew of 12 who will tend to their every need during the eight day trip.
It’s no surprise to hear that the Duchess of Cambridge has a glam squad behind her impeccable hair and classically beautiful ensembles, but who holds the coveted roles of stylist and hairdresser?
Meet the women who put Kate’s iconic look together:
Natasha Archer - Stylist and personal assistant
Natasha, or “Tash” as she is known in her social circle, is the face behind Kate’s regal wardrobe. Natasha has been working with the royal family for three years, and accompanied Kate on the Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2014, as well as to India and Bhutan in April this year.
The stylist is reported to have hand-picked the iconic white and blue polka-dot dress Kate wore after the birth of Prince George.
Natasha studied Hispanic Studies at King’s College London, and also works as a personal assistant to the Duchess.
Amanda Cook– Hairdresser
Amanda Cook is the woman behind “The Kate Middleton Effect” in salons around the world. She has worked with the Duchess since the Royal Tour of Singapore and Malaysia in 2012, making Kate’s hair one of the most enviable in the world.
Amanda has worked with the royal family for decades, and has been cutting Prince William and Prince Harry’s hair since they were children. According to reports, Amanda charges €350 per day.
As for makeup, Kate famously prefers to do her own for official appearances. However, when in need of a professional, makeup artist and creator of Votary London Arabella Preston is called to duty. Arabella hasn't been spotted in attendance in Canada, leaving the presumption that Kate has been doing her own makeup.
