So good that she has opted to style herself reports People magazine. She is preparing her wardrobe for her and Prince William’s first overseas 11 day tour of North America. The royal couple’s activities range from boat racing to black tie galas.

Middleton has had a busy week of appointments. She reportedly stopped by Beyonce, Rihanna and Lady Gaga’s favorite designer of all time, Alexander McQueen’s head office in East London. A few days later she spent two hours with hair stylist James Pryce and going through hairstyle ideas. Hair and make up is a must. Middleton, who will also have the help of her own fashion contacts, has taken time to make sure she is fully prepared in every way. "She is going through the program, having briefings and no doubt going through the wardrobe too," a palace source told People.

When she left her hair salon appointment with Pryce displaying her signature glossy blow out, an onlooker told People, "She seemed so relaxed and smiled at everyone as she left.
