I love a Royal wedding (well any wedding really) so when the engagement between Kate and Wills was announced last week, I was pretty much glued to my TV, flitting between hashed-together, fluff-documentaries about the pair (my guilty pleasure). One thing immediately struck me when watching the couple's official interview...Forget the heirloom sapphire and diamond engagement ring, the shiniest, most lustrous thing in that interview suite was Kate's impossibly glossy tresses. How could her bouncy, perfectly-coiffed hair have passed me by before? I needed to find out who her stylist was, and that's when an email from the Richard Ward press office landed in my inbox. The Richard Ward Hair & Metrospa, London (call 020 7730 1222 for bookings) has been attending to the Middletons' manes for years it seems, and it was seinor stylist, James, who was responsible for that 'do. We applaud you. Here's the official press statement...
Richard, Hellen and the Richard Ward team would like to send their sincere congratulations to Prince William & Kate Middleton on the announcement of their engagement.
It has been widely speculated in the press that Kate and the Middleton family have been loyal salon clients for many years; we would like to confirm this.
Our relationship with the Middleton's has been built on discretion and trust, Richard and his team intend to maintain this relationship whilst respecting Kate’s on-going privacy.
We can confirm our stylist, James, did a fantastic job in enhancing Kate’s look for the engagement press day and we would like to extend our best wishes to the happy couple for the future.
Richard & Hellen Ward
