Kate Middleton's Hairdresser To Help Ease Duchess' Hospital Leave

Giving birth must be hard enough without the whole world watching. (We here at HuffPost Style speak out of empathy, not experience.) Lucky for Kate Middleton, she has a powerful ally on her side to ease the stress of exiting the hospital.

Kate's famous coif will surely be in fine form when she, the royal baby and Prince William make their triumphant exit from St Mary's Lindo Wing, as the duchess' hairdresser is on hand. Arthur Edwards, longtime royal photographer for UK's The Sun, told Twitter that he spotted the star stylist at the Lindo Wing early this morning:

Edwards has a longstanding royal relationship -- he was even at St Mary's when William was born -- so we trust he knows Kate's hairdresser. We're glad Kate's got her secret weapon to help primp for her first post-birth appearance (and first public appearance in over a month, as a matter of fact).

We can't wait to see those famous curls bounce their way to Bucklebury, as rumored. When do you think the happy family will make their departure? Stay tuned to our liveblog for real-time updates!

Will the heir inherit this hair?
