Glam squad join the Duchess of Cambridge on gruelling six-hour trek

Knowing that she was to be photographed after a gruelling six-hour hike to a monastery on Friday (Apr. 15), the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, made sure to bring some members of her glam squad along to make sure she was camera-ready. Kate's stylist and hairdresser joined her and Prince William on the trek.

Amanda would likely be on hand to restyle Kate's hair following the trek, while Natasha may have taken some extra clothing for the Duchess just in case.

The ladies were also joined by Sophie Agnew, assistant to the Duchess's Private Secretary.

It's no surprise to see Amanda accompanying Kate on the tour – the famed hairdresser, who has styled Kate's locks for years, has joined the royal on previous tours and even visited the hospital shortly after Prince George was born in 2013 to help style the new mum's tresses into chic, tousled waves.

Natasha, meanwhile, was appointed Kate's stylist shortly after the royal announced her second pregnancy. Since, she is credited with upping the 'it factor' of Kate's wardrobe.

It's no wonder Kate needed a bit of help from her glam squad, after embarking on a six-hour trek.

She has encouraged the Duchess to experiment a bit more with her outfits, while also ensuring that Kate stays true to her style-icon status.

Natasha formed part of Kate's close entourage during the Australia and New Zealand tour two years ago so we were expecting to see her accompany the royal couple.
