Kate Middleton Shows Off Fabulous New Hairstyle During Latest Outings

New day, new hairstyle

Say hello to Kate Middleton’s new hairstyle. Over the weekend, the Princess of Wales, 41, watched teams England and Argentina face off against each other in the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France. And while the mother of three cheered on England from the sidelines, royally-obsessed fans couldn’t help but notice the royal was rocking a new hairdo.

After the game, Middleton had a chance to meet and talk with the England rugby players following their victory against Argentina. While donning a white Alexander McQueen suit for the occasion, Princess Catherine flaunted a much darker brown hairstyle with a chic new middle part and short-cut curtain bangs that are slightly curled at the ends.

Then for another outing on Monday, Middleton (who is a patron of The Forward Trust) paid a visit to the HMP High Down to learn more about the charity supporting the criminal justice system. Naturally, we got another close look at her new hairstyle.

Last week, Princess Catherine and her husband, Prince William, 41, attended a service at St David’s Cathedral to honor the first anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s death. The royal princess made it a point to hide her new hairstyle, which was pinned up in a high bun with a burgundy hat nestled on top. She also sported a stylish maroon coat dress, mimicking a similar look worn by the late queen for the Commonwealth Day service back in 2018.

This new ‘do stands in contrast to how she wore her hair earlier in the summer. A photo taken at this year’s Wimbledon (shown below) shows the royal princess rocking light brown locks with a classic side part. She didn’t have any short-cut bangs and her ends were wavy instead of curled.

Loving the new hairdo, Kate.
