Kate Middleton Rocks Sleek Ponytail & Hat on Remembrance Sunday

Kate Middleton just stepped out with a brand-new hairdo (and she totally nailed it).

Over the weekend, the Princess of Wales celebrated Remembrance Day by attending the National Service of Remembrance at The Cenotaph. The royal opted against her signature hairstyle, which features beachy waves with a center part. Instead, Princess Catherine rocked a chic ponytail that kept her hair away from her face.

When Princess Catherine stood next to the Queen Consort, Camilla Parker Bowles, she offered a rare glimpse of the new hairstyle. The royal’s long locks were secured in a low ponytail and curled to create an elegant cascade down her back.

The Princess of Wales wore a military-style coatdress by one of her favorite designers, Catherine Walker. She completed the look with pearl-drop earrings, a matching hat and a diamond brooch. She also donned three red poppies, which pay tribute to those who’ve died at war.

The appearance came just one day after Princess Catherine attended the Festival of Remembrance. She wore a black chiffon midi dress from Self-Portrait and accessorized with a wallet clutch from Mulberry and matching black pumps. She even paid tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth with a pearl choker and matching earring set.

We wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a sudden increase in ponytail popularity.
