Duchess 'takes hairstylist on tour'

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge will have a personal hairstylist on hand for her forthcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Catherine and husband Prince William will be kicking off the visit from April 7, and have confirmed that they'll be taking little Prince George with them.

Sources say Catherine's personal hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker will also be in tow for the trip, and will be on hand to tend to the royal's long locks whenever needed.

"Amanda has styled Kate's hair for a few years and does a mean blow dry. She wouldn't be without her on this tour," a source divulged to British magazine Grazia.

Many are already speculating about what Catherine will be wearing during her visit. The Duchess is a big fan of British high-street stores Whistles and Hobbs, as well as key designer pieces.

Those close to the Catherine say that Britain's Queen Elizabeth II has been advising her on what jewellery will be appropriate for the trip.

"There will be no tiaras because the Queen has impressed upon Kate that she should opt for larger jewels as well as more couture day dresses over her high-street favourites," the insider said.

Another colleague to be on hand throughout the duration of the tour will be Catherine's private secretary Rebecca Deacon, as well as a rumoured new 22-year-old nanny.

"Kate knows she needs an extra pair of hands for when she and William are tied up with their official duties.

"Rebecca has become one of the central figures in Kate's life. She's always waiting on the sidelines and she will be among those making sure that the tour is as stress-free as possible."
