Kate Middleton Just Debuted a Brand-New Hairdo During Her BBC Interview

Kate Middleton is starting off summer with a whole new cut and color. The Duchess of Cambridge just debuted a fresh ’do for the kickoff of her latest project.

On Tuesday, the 38-year-old royal helped launch Tiny Happy People, a BBC Education initiative providing a range of free digital resources, specifically designed to support parents and carers in developing children’s language from pregnancy to the age of four. She recently met with three families to chat about the program for an interview which aired on July 14—aka today.

And while we love the fact that Middleton is making another appearance on the small screen, we couldn’t help but notice the duchess was rocking a new hairstyle. It seems the mother of three ditched her golden brown lob for a lighter look (highlights perhaps?) with new face-framing layers. Not to mention, her hairstyle was perfectly blown out, and even had a touch of honey shades to it.

During a preview clip from the interview, Middleton opened up about her experience becoming a first-time parent and the resources (like THP) that she wishes she had at the time.

“In the first few months, there’s a huge amount of support from midwives and health visitors and things. But from then onwards there’s a massive gap before they then start school,” Middleton said before talking about the experience of one father, Ryan. "He’s learnt a huge amount from Tiny Happy People. It’s information like that I wish I had had as a first-time mom." She continued, "It’s gold dust, really, for families to be given those tips and tools to be able to use, particularly in those first five years.”

New projects and new hair? Summer looks good on you, Kate.
