Known for her classic fashion choices, Kate Middleton was recently hailed as the most stylish British icon following her royal tour in Australia and New Zealand. Thanks to Queen Elizabeth who reportedly gave the Duchess some valuable advice for her three-week trip, stylish Kate talks about her favorite designers with Camilla Parker-Bowles' daughter-in-law, Sarah Parker Bowles.

Married to the Duchess of Cornwall's son, Tom Parker Bowles, Sarah is another stylish member of the royal family who has a wardrobe like Victoria Beckham and other British icons. Wearing a dazzling Alexander McQueen wedding gown when she tied the knot with her food critic husband, the 40-something stylish worked as PA to Alexander Shulman, British Vogue's editor, and claimed that she hates being photographed.

"I definitely had quite a few panic attacks before the day. It's lovely to have all of that attention, but having everybody dissecting what you look like, what you're wearing - it's quite a strange thing," revealed Parker Bowles in an interview with Telegraph recalling the celebration of their wedding in 2005. Luckily for her, the paparazzi are not bothering them anymore and thinks they are "too boring for them now."

Even though she worked as an associate editor of Harper's Bazaar, and senior editor of Town & Country, Sarah prefers to be behind the camera than in front of it. A full-time mother to her two children, Lola, six, and Freddy, four, she revealed that Camilla Parker-Bowles maintained a relaxed environment at Clarence House and even finds the royal staff very welcoming.

When asked about the Duchess of Cambridge, Sarah remembered talking to Kate about their favorite designers and said that she is very complimentary about her outfit. "We've talked about designers we admire in the past and she's always very complimentary about what I wear but, clearly, she feels she's got more important things to think about - and that's what makes her so endearing," added Camilla's daughter-in-law.

Currently loving the country life, Kate Middleton together with Prince William and Prince George are taking a vacation in Norfolk in their newly renovated home, Anmer Hall. A gift from the Queen, the royal couple is taking a month-long vacation after months of public appearances and royal duties.
