As every bride knows, with just a few months to go before the big day, planning a wedding practically becomes a full-time job.
Try preparing to be a princess on top of it.
Middleton, 29, left her post as Party Pieces’s project manager to “concentrate full-time on preparing to become a member of the royal family,” an aide has confirmed, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.
“She has handed over her work to colleagues and is now preparing for her future life,” the aide says.
Middleton had worked as a Web site designer and photographer for Party Pieces (which is run just outside of her family’s home village of Bucklebury) and, according to a pal, also helped organize parties, something that should serve her well with her wedding planning.
“Catherine is a naturally creative individual and has spent her professional life in the creative industries having worked at Jigsaw, then as a Web site designer, photographer, marketer and events organizer,” a friend told Hello!. “Skills she has built up in her working life translate naturally to organizing a wedding.”
And while it’s unclear whether the princess will return to work after the wedding, she is expected to follow in the royal footsteps before her and become a charity patron.
