The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have an abundance of personal security guards that look after them when they are on official duties. But when they are not in the public eye, they have a few personal officers that are spotted with them when they are out and about. The Duke of Cambridge doesn’t seem to have one set person when he goes out and is seen usually with whoever is available. However, The Duchess of Cambridge has 2 specific protection officers who are usually seen out and about with her.
Emma Probert and the Mystery Guard have been seen with The Duchess since her engagement. She entered St. James’ Palace as a normal person and left with Emma by her side and she has been with Catherine ever since. The Mystery Guard was first spotted end of 2011 and has most recently been spotted with The Duchess shopping at Waitrose in Norfolk.

•Laura Baker and Natasha Archer-Jackson
Laura Baker and Natasha Archer are both The Duchess of Cambridge’s private assistants.
Laura Baker has recently been spotted frequently with The Duchess of Cambridge on official engagements when her private secretary, Catherine Quinn, is not with her. I don’t know exactly when she began working for The Cambridges but it has been a few years that she pops up here and there.
Natasha Archer is also a Private Assistant to the Duchess. She is also said to be her stylist but we don’t really know i she is. I think maybe she just deals with her clothes. Natasha was one of the first people to meet Baby Prince Louis this year and her departure from the hospital was the first sign to me that the little prince had already been born. She also was one of the first to meet George and Charlotte when they were born!

•Amanda Cook Tucker
Amanda Cook Tucker is The Duchess of Cambridge’s hairstylist. She has been working for Catherine since around 2012 and travels with her on tours. She was spotted at the Lindo Wing in 2013 to get The Duchess ready to present George. I have no doubt she was also there in 2015 and this year!
The Duchess of Cambridge clearly has more (known) staff than The Duke of Cambridge for obvious reasons. This is just a post on theirregular staff as they have a more extensive staff when they travel and go own tour! I hope you all enjoyed my post!
