When Princess Kate goes into hospital for the birth of her second child, her much-trusted medical team will be by her side. But there is another person also on speed dial – Kate’s hairdresser, Amanda Cook Tucker.
It was Tucker who created those perfectly relaxed, feminine waves for Kate to greet the world’s press on the steps of the Lindo Wing at London’s St. Mary’s Hospital in July 2013 when Prince George was born and there’s little doubt that Tucker will be on-call again in the coming weeks.
Tucker has been the royal’s go-to hairstylist of choice ever since she went on a royal tour with Prince William to Asia in 2012. (However, Kate still uses the services of London’s Richard Ward Salon, which she has patronized for years, but she only ever has home visits.)
The 53-year-old hairdresser is no stranger to the royal family as she’s been cutting William’s hair since he was a teen.
So, can we expect to see Kate’s flowing locks around her shoulders again as leaves the hospital with her new little prince or princess?
“Absolutely. If ever there was a time to look feminine this would be it,” Sophie Goodwin, Tatler‘s Style Editor tells PEOPLE, adding, “She will go for bouncy hair with lots of wave and shine and only a bit of make up.”
Adds hairdresser, Daniel Galvin Jr., who has his own roster of royal clients (and whose father styled Princess Diana): “She has a wonderful mane and it is something that suits her very much.”
