Duchess Kate's Stylist Marries Royal Photographer and Her Wedding Dress Looks Familiar
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge might have just celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary, but it was the wedding bells of another royal couple favorite that caught our attention over the weekend.
According to HELLO! magazine, the Kate Middleton's personal stylist, Natasha Archer, and stock photo agency Getty's royal photographer, Chris Jackson, tied the knot in a private ceremony in France on Saturday April 29, the same wedding date as Duchess Kate and Prince William.
Taking to his Instagram page, Chris shared several images of his special day with Archer, which took place at Château Rigaud near Bordeaux.
Jackson shared a black and white picture of him standing alongside his stunning 30-year-old wife, who wore a wedding dress similar to that of Kate's bespoke Sarah Burton wedding gown in 2011. He captioned the image on Instagram: 'My Beautiful Wife #bestweekend.'
Holding a cream bouquet, also similar to the Duchess' royal wedding bouquet, Archer can be seen wearing a long-sleeved lace gown with a sweetheart neckline with her hair fixed into a low chignon.
The newlywed photographer posted several other photographs from his big day to the social media platform.
Chris has been named Royal Photographer of the Year and is responsible for capturing candid shots of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Harry, and Duchess Kate. He and Natasha confirmed their engagement last September, with the professional photographer posting a picture of their engagement in Cornwall, with the caption: 'Apparently it was a long time coming and I'm definitely punching above my weight…'
According to Tatler, Natasha, known as 'Tash' by Buckingham Palace staff, has been working with the Royal Family since 2007, first in the role as personal assistant in Prince William and Kate's office.
However, in 2014, the King's College Hispanic Studies graduate was promoted to the role of style advisor, after reportedly giving her honest opinion on Kate's nude court shoes, and has persuaded the royal to experiment with new designer labels including Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, See by Chloe, and Carolina Herrera.
As a result of her close relationship to the royal couple, Natasha was reportedly the first non-family member to visit the Lindo Wing following the birth of Prince George, and was spotted carrying a hanger bag presumed to contain the blue and white polka dot Jenny Packham dress which Kate wore when presenting George to the world for the first time.

She also once joined the now mother-of-two on a six-hour trek to a Bhutan monastery–fortunately with her now husband close by to document the trip.
In recent months, Natasha has been taking an active role in joining Kate on several royal tours around the world, including India and Canada last year.
