We may love Kate Middleton's timeless wardrobe but the Queen wants her granddaughter-in-law to take it down a notch - literally.

According to the Daily Mail, Queen Elizabeth II has recently ordered a makeover (makeunder?) for the Duchess of Cambridge while she tours Australia and New Zealand in April.

As part of this new look, Prince George's mum will be wearing longer skirts, Indian gems which were gifted to the Royal Family in 1911 and more tiaras. (Yay! Tiaras!)

"This forms part of a deliberate move to shift the Duchess’s image from High Street to high end, timeless Royal elegance – without losing her freshness and informality," said the Mail.

The Queen has put her personal dresser, Angela Kelly, in charge of dressing the Duchess, who will be required to wear up to four outfits a day for the three-and-a-half week trip.

Designers who will be outfitting the Duchess Down Under include Kate favourites such as Alexander McQueen and Alice Temperley, who are designing bespoke gowns and day dresses.

The idea is for Kate to be be "more Royal than ever" and while we're sure the tiaras will definitely help with that, we're a bit doubtful that lowering her hemlines will make her more royal than she already is. (And she's pretty royal, you guys!)

While it's great that we're going to see the Duchess sport a ton of new designer outfits, we can't but question the reasoning behind this decision since, well, isn't the Queen kinda broke?

Oh well, let them eat McQueen!

We think Catherine's hemlines are A-ok:
