With millions of people looking on, Kate Middleton had to look absolutely perfect at her wedding today to Prince William. And she did.

According to a report, the newly ennobled Duchess of Cambridge decided to stick with her longtime hairstylist James Pryce of the Richard Ward Salon for her coif.

An insider told press, "Kate wanted to look like herself on her wedding day. She told salon owner Richard Ward, 'William must recognize me by the time I get to the altar.'"

In the weeks leading up to the wedding, "Kate had around four or five tryouts. She brought along photos of the styles she liked and showed them to James. Hairstyle tests were then done in a top-secret location. Kate was very pleased with the result."

Regarding her makeup, it is rumored that Kate did it herself using Bobbi Brown products. Beauty specialist Sarah Chapman explained, "Her complexion was perfect and her makeup completed the fluidly femininity of her soft look. She carried off the English rose look well with fresh rosy cheeks and nude lips that were balanced by her strong eyes and glossy dark hair. You can tell she looks after her skin very well, which allows her to pull off a natural look."
