For fourteen years, Angela Kelly was fit to dress the Queen of England, and now, she will accompany the Duchess of Cambridge on her Australian tour later this year, Marie Claire is reporting.
“I love the Queen and everything about her,” Kelly told the Telegraph back in 2007, after she was just promoted to personal assistant, advisor and curator to her majesty the Queen. “I adore her—but then, so does everyone else. She in not ‘my’ Queen, she is everyone’s and so I have to share her. Once she has chosen something to wear, I just want her to look good in it. I love seeing the faces of the public when they meet the Queen, and when she gives them that special smile. It makes me feel so proud of her.”
Now, Kelly has been granted the chance to create the same memories with Princess Kate Middleton.
We’re wondering how this will change Middleton’s style as she seems to favor mixing mid-range designers, perhaps this new partnership will steer the mother of England’s future king into high fashion and couture—we’ll be watching come April!
