Duchess Catherine has changed up her signature brunette hairstyle in favour of a honey-blonde shade


The Duchess of Cambridge has recently undergone a hair transformation, revealing new "bronde" hair on Instagram this week.

In a new film posted to the @kensingtonroyal account, Duchess Catherine's hair is significantly lighter hair than the signature brunette we're used to seeing.

Styled in her trademark blow dry, the Duchess is definitely moving into honey blonde territory with her hair – and we're sure you'll agree she looks fantastic.

The film was uploaded as part of the Duchess's "Hold Still" project, which encouraged fellow keen photographers to document life in lockdown.

And it seems that royal fans agree with us on the new look; "how beautiful does Kate look?!" one user commented, while another added, "she is just so lovely and elegant".

Honey blonde clearly has the royal seal of approval.

Don't know about you, but we're confident Duchess Catherine would look good with just about any hair colour...
