This is what we know about these two royal stylists:

Natasha Archer 

Natasha Archer is Kate Middleton’s personal stylist and assistant. She is said to have been working for the duchess for over a decade and is the woman behind her impeccable style.

According to Vanity Fair, Kate used to be a reluctant fashionista and Natasha changed that in 2014 when she started styling her.

Natasha, affectionately known as Tash, is a Hispanic Studies graduate from King’s College in London. She is also married to Getty Image royal photographer, Chris Jackson.

The couple recently welcomed a cute bouncing baby boy named Theo.

Tash travels around the world on royal tours to assist and advise Kate on her designer looks. Not to mention the fact that she was the mastermind behind Kate’s bold royal tour of Australia ensembles.

When Kate Middleton gave birth to Prince Louis at St Mary’s hospital in 2018, her trusted stylist was there to co-ordinate her look for her first public appearance after giving birth, and she certainly nailed it. 

According to the Mirror, Natasha has now been made a member of the Royal Victorian Order by the Queen after having started as only a personal assistant to Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Jessica Mulroney

Jessica Mulroney is Meghan's right hand woman when it comes to fashion. She also happens to be very good friends with her royal mannequin. The two met when the Duchess of Sussex was still playing the trendy character of Rachel Zane on U.S. TV series Suits.

Mulroney started her fashion career as a stylist to former Canadian TV host Sophie Grégoire Trudeau in 2015.

The Canadian fashion stylist joined the royal couple for their 16-day tour to Australia, Fiji, Tongo and New Zealand to assist with the expecting duchess' wardrobe.
