As if there weren't enough reasons to love Kate Middleton, she's decided to ditch plans to hire a personal housekeeper and dresser, reports say.
All in the name of living royal - and married - life more simply.
She was planning to hire a joint housekeeper and dresser to serve her and Prince William in their home, but recently jettisoned those plans.
Her reasoning? She just doesn't feel she needs one.
The couple's private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, told reporters the household will be reassessing what's needed toward the end of the year.
After their engagement and the royal wedding in April, William and Kate's lives were in a "time of flux," he said. Now, the royal family is working on developing the "infrastructures we need to support a young couple."
Kate Middleton will be taking hairdresser James Pryce with her on a visit to California as part of a modest entourage. Two press secretaries, Lowther-Pinkerton and an assistant private secretary will also join the newlyweds.
