When Kate Middleton heads to Australia this spring, Queen Elizabeth has requested the Duchess of Cambridge change her look.

The Queen has asked for longer hemlines, more statement jewelry pieces, and for Kate to wear a tiara more often, according to Vanity Fair.

In order to achieve the look, the Queen has enlisted her own personal stylist to help Kate pack for the three and a half week trip. She is also going to loan Kate "statement jewelry and gemstones from the Queen's personal collection."

The tiaras that Queen Elizabeth is referring to are ones "favored by the Queen and Queen Mother."

But it appears Kate still has some input into what she will be wearing. There are reports that she is already in talks with designers Alexander McQueen and Alice Termperly to create gowns for her trip.

Kate's hairdresser is also along for the tour, but she has recently "undergone training in the art of attaching a tiara."
