A stylist credited with overhauling Kate Middleton's wardrobe became a member of the Royal Victorian Order during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

Natasha Archer was given the honour after being named in the New Year's Honours list 2019 for her services to the royal family.

Pictures uploaded to social media show a beaming Ms Archer at the Palace for court proudly displaying the medal bestowed to her by the Queen.

Another picture showed her with her four-month-old son Theo during a celebratory lunch at the Goring Hotel in west London.

Both snaps were taken by husband Chris Jackson, a world-renowned Getty royal photographer, whom she has been married to since 2017.

For a decade, Ms Archer has travelled around the world with the Cambridges on official tours to help co-ordinate her wardrobe.

The new mum has been working with the royal family since 2007 and was originally Kate's PA.

In 2014, she was promoted to Kate's style advisor and was frequently spotted lugging around cases and suit bags on royal tours.

She has played an important role in William and Kate's lives – predominantly assisting the duchess with her style and travelling the world with the couple on official tours.

She was spotted arriving at the Ludo Wing in St Mary's Hospital following the birth of Prince Louis in April, to help the Duchess of Cambridge get ready for her public appearance.

Her husband regularly accompanies the Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Cambridge family and Meghan and Harry on official engagements.

Natasha went on maternity leave in December and was replaced by fashion consultant Ginnie Chadwyck-Healey who has significantly changed the Duchesses' style in recent weeks.

Mrs Chadwyck-Healey became friends with Kate during their time at St Andrew's.

Over the past few months the Duchess has introduced some subtle changes, the most noted departure from her tried and tested look being the Gucci blouse and wide leg trousers she wore on an outing to the Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre in Lambeth, South London.

New items from the likes of Sportmax, Missoni and Manu Atelier have helped to revamp her look.
