Next, a report that Kate is working with a stylist. This comes via a Grazia story published yesterday, “Kate’s Secret Stylist Is Revealed: Meet Prince George’s Godmother Emilia Jardine-Paterson”. From Lottie Lumsden’s story:

Until little Prince George’s christening at St James’s Palace last week, few had heard of Emilia Jardine-Paterson, his new godmother. Yet Grazia has learned that recently the Duchess of Cambridge’s close friend from Marlborough College has taken on another role too – as Kate’s secret stylist.

There’s really no way to know if Ms. Jardine-Paterson is offering more than the usual input a friend might give, or if she is genuinely working with the Duchess on wardrobe elements. What we have seen thus far isn’t an indicator one way or another – the pieces worn since George’s birth have been in keeping with Kate’s established style. The casual post-birth ensembles all had familiar looks and names: Jenny Packham, Ralph Lauren and Pied a Terre, to name of the brands seen below.
