The Duchess of Cambridge looked effortlessly stunning when she stepped out to debut her new haircut this week.

The royal mum-of-three has teamed up with the BBC to be part of their new initiative, Tiny Happy People.

The project launched yesterday and is designed to help and support parents and those caring for children aged 0-4 in their language development.

The Duchess, who is a keen advocate for early years support, came out to support the special mission with what seems to be a shorter hairstyle.

With UK hairdressers having opened up earlier this month, it’s likely that Kate will have decided to opt for a trim following the lockdown months.

It also looks as though Kate may have opted for a few golden toned highlights to brighten up her locks for the sunnier months and we totally approve.

Continuing to impress royal fans with her fashion sense, the future Queen consort looked elegant in a bold polka dot print dress from Emilia Wickstead.

She teamed the black and white number with her trusty Castañer Carina wedges that we have seen her sporting at many summer outings.

While it’s no secret that Catherine’s style choices often come with a hefty price tag, it seems as though she may have opted for a little bit of a bargain with the spotty Antola dress.

The high end brand piece usually retails at £1,565 but is currently on sale for £469 with a whopping 70% off.

Unsurprisingly the frock has already sold out but we’ve found some super similar options you can pick up online for way less than the original.

This one Dorothy Perkins is reduced to £22 right now and features sweet short sleeves.

Meanwhile, the ASOS White Printed High Neck Open Back Midi Dress is just like the Duchess’ for an affordable £39.

Speaking on her involvement in Tiny Happy People, Kate said, “Families and carers are at the heart of nurturing the next generation of happy, healthy adults, but sometimes it can be hard to know where to turn to for advice.

“Tiny Happy People is an invaluable resource which provides parents and carers with support and tips, as well as simple activities to ensure children develop the language skills they need to have the best possible start in life. I am delighted to have been part of its journey and hope families across the UK will enjoy exploring the resources.”
