Kate Middleton’s hairstylist has revealed what the Duchess of Cambridge will use on her four-day trip to Sweden. Amanda Cook Tucker posted on the essentials a pregnant mother of two will need to keep her luscious locks in tip-top shape.
Tucker posted the photo of the products she would bring with her on the tour on Monday to her private Instagram account. The photo included various hair products and tools spread across a table.
“Think that’s it! #worktrip #packing, ”she posted. Unfortunately, she has since deleted her account.
According to People, Tucker included 13 brushes, six combs, three hair clips and two hairdryers on the table, in addition to seven hair products. While everything seems too much, even for a traveling Duchess, most of the products her hairstylist showcases cost less than US $ 10 (AU $ 13).
The cheapest product pictured was Essential Maximum Hold unscented hairspray (£ 1.99 or AU $ 3.46) from UK pharmacy Boots. There was also the Texturizing Spray (around AU $ 12.18) and Elnett Supreme Hold hairspray (around AU $ 8.70). The most expensive product included in the image was the Diva Professional Styling Intelligent Digital Argan Tong, which costs around AU $ 69.60.
Kate and her husband Prince William are expected to travel to Sweden on Tuesday for a four-day trip. They will have lunch with King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. They will leave behind Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Meanwhile, Kate’s noticeably shorter hair was due to the fact that she allegedly donated much of it to charity. According to the Express, the Duchess had her seven-inch hairstyle cut so she could donate it to the Little Princess Trust, an organization that provides real wigs to children and young adults who have lost their hair because of it. treatment for cancer or other illnesses.
Kate’s hair was apparently cut at Kensington Palace by hairstylist Joey Wheeler, who persuaded her to remove some of her hair because it was getting too long. “While Joey was cutting, the idea occurred to him to do good with it rather than throw it away,” a source told the newspaper. “She mentioned it to Joey, who thought it was a brilliant idea.”
The trust was unaware that the locks belonged to a royal because the donation was sent using someone else’s name. “They just thought it was from a donor in the Kensington area.”
