The Duchess of Cambridge might not have an "official" appointed stylist, but Natasha Archer, her former personal assistant, quite clearly is involved in her public wardrobe, having been photographed carrying clothes bags on Middletons's royal tours and taking the royal's outfits into the Lindo Wing. There might not be a Hollywood stylist hashtagging #styledbyme on pictures of Meghan Markle, either, but it has been widely reported that her close friend Jessica Mulroney is assuming this "secret stylist" role for her.
According to The Telegraph, the Canadian stylist and fashion figure has denied any formal involvement in Markle's wardrobe. She has been photographed in London over the past month, mounting speculation that she has been helping the bride-to-be with her wedding. She may or may not have been a mastermind behind the dress, but her family will play a central role in Saturday's wedding as her children, Ivy, John, and Brian, will be bridesmaids and pageboys in the ceremony.
Mulroney does have previous experience dressing for royal protocol as she styled Sophie Grégoire Trudeau for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's royal visit to Canada in 2016. "She needed a few things to wear and was so busy. I was in Toronto so I sent her some options," Mulroney told The Telegraph at the time. "She wore a coat by Canadian designer Sentaler and people went crazy for it. We had created this media frenzy, like you see with anything Kate wears. Then we realised we had a responsibility to create more moments like that to give homegrown designers an international platform."
