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!

Queen Elizabeth Is Glad Her Great Grandson Doesn't Have His Dad's Ears

Your sex life will never be the same. In my day. What, not breast-feeding?

From diet tips to "little baby, little problems," sleep-deprived and super-stressed new parents have heard it all. And they want you to stop it.

As Britain's Prince William and his wife, Kate, move along on their parenting journey, it seems even the queen has had a what-not-to-say moment. According to a special edition of Us magazine on raising royals, she exclaimed soon after William's birth: "Thank goodness he hasn't ears like his father!"

What Is The Royal Baby's Official Title?

The royal baby is here! Now that we've seen him and his parents have said some sweet words about the birth, we're left wondering... what is his official title?

Until Will and Kate choose a first name, the royal baby will officially be titled as "HRH Prince of Cambridge." It makes sense, given that his father is titled "Prince William, Duke of Cambridge" and Kate is titled "Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge." In fact, the royal baby's title will be the first time "Prince of Cambridge" has been used in 194 years! Find out more about his royal title here.
