The milliner behind some of the Duchess of Cambridge and Countess of Wessex’s most loved hats has spoken out about her royal clients.
Jane Taylor, who designs hats for the elegant royals has revealed she has met Kate, 32, and Sophie, 49, describing them as “always really lovely”.
Speaking at the recent International Millinery Forum in Wagga, Australia, the coveted designer said: “The Duchess of Cambridge and the Countess of Wessex are regular clients.
“They’ll contact me when they think they have an outfit that fits my style.”
The milliner who also counts Denmark’s Crown Princess Mary and Zara Phillips as clients also explained how it has been a joy to work with the royals.
“I’ve met most of them, they’re always really love, really nice. They are just like normal people.”
Both Kate and Sophie have regularly been spotted in Jane Taylor designs with the Duchess of Cambridge choosing the milliner for the Diamond Jubilee thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral in June 2012, and for Prince George’s christening in October 2013.
Jane also revealed a typical hat takes about two days to make. “With the base there is lots of layers under there you can’t see, lots of stiffening and wiring inside so it’s quite a long process,” she said.
