We're counting down to Kate Middleton and Prince William's trip Down Under!

Here's why we can't wait: according to US Weekly, the Duchess of Cambridge will have complete access to Queen Elizabeth's private jewelry collection.

What does this entail? Brooches, necklaces and earrings by the handful!

Unfortunately, the mum won't be wearing any of Elizabeth's famous tiaras (sob!) but we can rest assured that the 32-year-old will dazzle us with her diamonds (after all, they're a girl's best friend).

"She has been allowed to pick out as many items as she needs," a source told Us. "She's working with a wardrobe coordinator to put together her outfits."

The three-week trip, which entails 48 engagements for the Duke and Duchess, will have Prince George's mum in more than 30 outfit changes.

"A number of outfits she's wearing on the tour are off-the-rack pieces, however they're being tailored to her body shape," the source said. "The Queen's dress maker, Angela Kelly, and her team have been involved in a lot of the wardrobe prep."

Most likely, we can expect to see Kate recycle some of her wardrobe favourites.

Our top choices? This stunning deep blue Jenny Packham gown, her favourite red Alexander McQueen frock and the bright blue LK Bennett sheath dress she wore on Valentine's Day.

One thing we can be certain of: Kate's skirts will definitely be long as per the Queen's instructions.
