Kate Middleton and Prince William leave for Canada on 30 June
Kate Middleton doesn't want to be seen as a 'clothes horse' and won't be recruiting a housekeeper/dresser to help her impress American fans.
The Duchess of Cambridge and husband Prince William leave for the US at the end of the month and though Kate will travel with her own hairdresser, she'll be her own stylist.
Kate feels 'perfectly happy and confident' choosing her own outfits for her royal duties, sources tell the Daily Mail.
While Kate, 29, sees the role of a housekeeper/dresser as a 'waste of money', the couple are to travel with a team of 7, including the Duchess's hairdresser James Pryce, an adviser, 2 press secretaries and 2 private secretaries to ensure royal protocol is followed.
Wills, 28, and Kate were expected to meet up with LA-based David and Victoria Beckham in July but have reportedly been advised to stick to their official duties instead.
'It is important that William and Kate set the right tone,' a close source told The Sunday People.
would be an absolute disaster if their time in Los Angeles saw them
becoming wrapped up in some kind of Hollywood celebrity publicity
