The Princess of Wales made her new “bronde” hair debut on Saturday while participating in a walkabout in front of Windsor Castle.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were surprised by Kate and the Prince of Wales after Queen Elizabeth II’s tragic passing on September 8th.
Kate put on a brave face while performing her first official royal duty as The Princess of Wales, greeting fans who were crying while pausing to see the heartfelt floral tributes.
The mother-of-three was pictured adhering to the late Queen’s period of mourning by donning a stylish long-sleeved black dress and suede heels.
The royal completed her appearance with a softly tousled hairdo that worked well to highlight her noticeably lighter locks.
In a change of pace, Kate seems to have traded in her typically raven tresses for softer brunette hair with honey highlights. The 40-year-old was only recently captured in a photo at the Commonwealth Games sporting much darker chestnut hair enhanced with chocolate lowlights.
Her hair is the eighth wonder of the world, according to one royal admirer who commented online, and another added, “I want to copy this look right now!”
A third person commented, “Gorgeous Princess of Wales,” and a fourth said, “Reminds me of her pre/post wedding haircut!”
The “Fab Four” met with the general public for 40 minutes during their visit, receiving gifts like flowers and balloons.
After the Queen passed away at age 96 while being attended by members of her immediate family, they went on a surprise outing. William, who was heartbroken by the news, wrote an emotional statement that read: “There will be much discussion about the significance of her historic reign in the coming days because the world lost an extraordinary leader on Thursday whose dedication to the nation, the Realms, and the Commonwealth was unwavering.
“But I’ve lost my grandmother. And while I will miss her, I also feel a great sense of gratitude. I am in my fifth decade and have benefited from The Queen’s knowledge and assurance. She has provided my wife with advice and assistance for twenty years. She has allowed my three children to spend the holidays with her and make lifelong memories.
I knew this day would come, but it will take some time before the reality of life without Grannie will truly feel real. She was by my side during the happiest moments of my life as well as the saddest days of my life.
William has inherited the title of Prince of Wales as a result of King Charles III’s coronation. Prince William and Kate were given the titles of Prince of Wales and Princess of Wales, respectively, by Charles during his first speech as the British monarch.
William succeeds me as Duke of Cornwall and takes on the duties for the Duchy of Cornwall that I have undertaken for more than 50 years, the King said. “As my Heir, William now assumes the Scottish titles which have meant so much to me,” the King said.
