Kate Middleton Switches Up Her Hair Again During Rare Outing with Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles

It seems one of Kate Middleton's new year's resolutions was to keep adapting her look, because the royal has been giving us a whole slew of different hairdos in the past month.

After showing up to her first outing of the year with a bouncy blowout, the Duchess of Cambridge attended a different event sporting an even curlier ’do, similar to the style she wore during the Christmas holiday. Then, the duchess pulled out a stylish ponytail in a video she posted to Instagram just yesterday.

But where's the fun in stopping there? Middleton went on a rare outing with Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles early this morning, and as the trio visited the Prince's Foundation in London, the duchess brought out a gorgeous ‘do (that we've seen in the past).

While wearing a gray tweed dress, Middleton's locks were styled into a half updo, where the top was parted to the side and given some volume.

However, all of the action took place in the back, where we see strands from the top part of Middleton's hair woven into a small knot, while the lower section is a cascade of straight locks that transforms into tight curls. The Duchess of Cambridge sported a similar style last year, during a trip to Scotland.

Middleton's hair has evolved quite a bit throughout her years as a royal. In the mid-aughts, the duchess was already rocking the blowout that would become her signature look, however, this ’do often included a curtain bang on one side, which she has ditched more recently. In the years since, the duchess has tried out curtain bangs on both sides, bobs, lobs, barely-there waves and more natural looks, while also playing around with caramel and auburn-colored hues.

All we know is we can't wait to see what other surprises Kate has in store with her hair this year.
