Kate Middleton has debuted her new summer ‘do and we definitely approve.
Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge (35) was one of the guests of honour at the first day of Wimbledon where Andy Murray will take on Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik during their men’s singles first round match.
The mother-of-two also showed off her new, much shorter hairstyle – which is big news among Kate’s dedicated fashion followers. She breezed into the The All England Lawn Tennis Club in a black and white polka dot dress by Dolce & Gabbana, a pair of black open toe block heels by high street shoe chain Office and a white leather tote by Victoria Beckham.
Kate has been on something of a fashion roll of late, slowly moving away from her signature style look of nude heels, pleated skirts and fascinators into a more sophisticated, grown-up style. And in the final step of her style evolution, she’s chopped her locks and opted for a loose wave instead of her normal curly blowdry.
“I was very heavily pregnant. I wrote to him [Murray] afterwards saying sorry for not being there,” she said in a BBC documentary about Wimbledon.
She attends the tennis championship nearly every year and unlike her early days before she wed Prince William and had to queue for hours to get tickets, she now enjoys a prime spot in the royal box at centre court.
“Being able to go into Wimbledon and be part of an amazing atmosphere is special. It inspires young people, including myself. Every time Wimbledon is on I am thinking, ‘Yes, I could do the same,’ and get out the racket. Sadly, not the same results.”
