William and Kate join bandy players during Sweden visit

The Duchess of Cambridge isn't exactly a fan of packing lightly, and ahead of kick-starting her tour of Sweden and Norway with Prince William in Stockholm today (30 January), her private hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker has revealed the essentials she takes to look her very best.

This is certainly true, which is why it's not hard to believe that the duchess would donate her hair for a good cause. T he photo included various products and hair tools spread on a table. "But lots of people don't fill in the paperwork and they don't feel the need to be acknowledged in that way, but we are always very grateful". But we'd also be lying if we said we weren't thinking of investing in some of those products, like the Elnett hairspray, the Kiehl's Crème with Silk Groom, or the Charles Worthington: Volume & Bounce Body Booster Mousse.

Prince William and Kate Middleton is now spendin four days visiting both Sweden and Norway this week, basing themselves in Stockholm and Oslo.

Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel also accompanied them to the Stockholm's Nobel Museum where they learnt more about science.

According to a report from Sunday Express, which People magazine covered, Middleton had an awesome suggestion for what to do with the hair her stylist, Joey Wheeler, chopped off: donate it to charity. According to a royal source who spoke to The Daily Express, the Duchess of Cambridge recently donated some of her hair to a cancer charity that provides real hair wigs for children and young adults who have lost their hair as a result of treatment.

The source explained: "She mentioned it to Joey who thought it was a brilliant idea".

The trust wasn't aware that the locks belonged to a royal because the donation was sent using someone else's name.

Middleton, who is pregnant with their third child, bundled up in a black Burberry coat and Fjallraven sweater, which she paired with a fuzzy gray hat, skinny jeans, boots and white gloves.
