Kate Middleton isn't the only one pulling out all the stops for her wedding to Prince William; Queen Elizabeth II, 85, has instructed her hair and makeup to arrive bright and early at 9 a.m.

"She uses Kerastase products on her hair. The Queen loves having her hair done!" a source tells Us Weekly. "She's very relaxed and likes to drink a glass of brandy and Coke, although obviously she won't be doing that at 9 a.m.!"

Her 89-year-old husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, "often looks on and makes jokes," the insider adds. "He's a real character."

No word yet on what the English monarch will wear to the ceremony.
