Kate Says No Thank You to Lady-in-Waiting

Prince William and his new bride are to take a scaled-back entourage on their trip to Canada and California, in keeping with the ‘no frills’ approach they hope to adopt in their married life.

Kate wants to break with Royal tradition and dispense with the services of a permanent lady-in-waiting, and will ‘test the water’ by making the official trip without one.

Courtiers say they will take between six and ten aides on their debut overseas tour in July – compared to around 30 for the Queen and Prince Philip on their trips.

‘Kate is very low maintenance. She did her own wedding-day make-up and is confident doing her make-up for the cameras,’ said the source.
