While most of us have spent the past few months desperately googling how to hide our roots, avoiding any mirrored surfaces and planning a dramatic cut once lockdown is over, it appears that the Duchess of Cambridge has been doing exactly the same. For, just over a week after hairdressers in England reopened on July 4, she's been spotted with a brand new 'do.

Normally known for switching up her length — but keeping her natural, chocolatey brown locks the same — Kate Middleton has seemingly decided to make a change as she returns to active royal duty, and lighten her brunette hair with some fresh-looking honey-blonde highlights.

The Duchess was spotted on Instagram doing some filming for BBC Breakfast, as part of a segment called 'Tiny Happy People', the aim of which is to provide a range of free resources to support parents and carers in developing children's language.

Here she debuted her voluminous new hairdo, which looked fresh, chic and bouncier than ever, thanks to her some Farrah Fawcett-style shorter layers that have been cut in to frame her face, along with a few new honey-blonde highlights.

In the past Kate has often timed a dramatic haircut to coincide with a new pregnancy announcement, but seeing as how she already has her hands full with Prince George, 6, Charlotte, 5, and Louis, 2, we're just going to chalk this new look down to her wanting a brand new look post-pandemic — just like the rest of us!
