Kate Middleton has promoted her PA to personal stylist
A modern day fairytale
In what reads like a modern day fairytale, Vanity Fair are reporting that Kate Middleton has promoted her personal assistant Natasha Archer to be her personal stylist. After being holed up with acute morning sickness the Duchess of Cambridge away from the public eye for a while, the British beauty has returned to the social circuit and has been sporting some pretty great looks of late and it is no coincidence.
That wonderful Jenny Packham slit gown she wore to the Wildlife Photography Awards recently? All Archer. The rather daring (for royality anyway) sheer black Temperley number? Yes, Archer too.
27-year-old Natasha Archer, fondly known as "Tash" at Kensington Palace, is now an important part of Kate's team and is helping William's wife to make more fashionable choices.
"Initially Kate was a reluctant fashion icon, but now she enjoys it. Tash helps source some of the clothes. She shops a lot for Kate online, and calls in hundreds of dresses for Kate to try on," a source said. "She has persuaded Kate to take some more risks. The hemlines are shorter and Kate's really pushing the boat out in the fashion stakes."
