Kate Middleton Wants to Live (Relatively) Simply

by at . Comments

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.

A Beautiful Bride

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.
