Kate Middleton Has A Secret Stylist! And She's Also Prince George's Godmother

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is without a doubt one of the most stylish women on the planet and guess what? Rumour has it she has a secret stylist in the form of her school friend Emilia Jardine-Paterson aka one of Prince George's godparents.

K-Middy has gone without a stylist in the past with sources close to the royal insisting she's "perfectly happy and confident" in choosing her own official wardrobe.

BUT according to new reports, pal Emilia has been "overseeing all of Kate's public outfits" recently.

"Kate admires Emilia's style," a source told Grazia. "Emilia has become increasingly important to her and Kate always uses her as a sounding board.

"Emilia is trying to move Kate away from the Middleton neutral palate and push her towards colour or pattern. Emilia loves vintage and tries to get Kate to be a bit more quirky.

"When they were at school she used to tease Kate about her prim Jigsaw shirts and hated those fur gilets Kate wore."

Kate's stylish friend is an interior-designer by trade and is thought to be assisting the Duke and Duchess with the design of their Kensington Palace home.
