Kate Middleton Changes Up Her Hair for Her Visit to Cardiff Castle in Wales

It should come as no surprise that Kate Middleton's hair is always on point. Whether it's an intricate updo or voluminous curls, her shiny locks continue to give us plenty of hair inspiration. And once again, the duchess did not disappoint at this year's Platinum Jubilee.

While Middleton is best known for her signature dark waves, the royal switched things up with a new 'do while visiting the Cardiff Castle in Wales. Channeling her inner Sporty Spice, she wore her straightened tresses in a playful ponytail—a laid-back 'do that we haven't seen in quite a while.

But this wasn't the only hairstyle that caught our eye. When Middleton attended the National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral, she stepped in with an ornate percher and an intricate, elegant updo, giving us major queen-like vibes.

Meanwhile, for the queen's birthday parade, Middleton served up yet another gorgeous updo. In the pics, her hair is pinned into an elaborate bun beneath her blue-and-white hat—and without a single strand out of place.

Not surprisingly, Middleton's eye-catching outfits have also been attracting plenty of attention during the ongoing celebration. After the royal appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony in all-white, she added a bit of sunshine to the Thanksgiving service by wearing a pale yellow dress. Then, for her visit with the family to Wales, she turned heads in a vibrant red jacket.

Keep these fabulous fashion (and hair) looks coming, Kate.
