The private secretaries: Rebecca Deacon (pictured above with Maria) was hired in 2012 to be Kate's personal assistant. Rebecca can often be seen by Kate's side at public events and has joined the group on their latest tour. William's private secretary, Miguel Head, who was appointed to the role in 2012 after he served as assistant press secretary, is also overseas with the couple.
Additional staff: Kate and William are also being accompanied by three press officers, a tour secretary, and an orderly to help manage the logistics. Kate and William's official staff is fully funded by Prince Charles through the Duchy of Cornwall estate.
