Kate New Hairstyle: Duchess Kate Gets Knotted, Sets Another Hair Trend [Photos]

Kate new hairstyle

Kate showed off a new hairstyle while visiting a couple of charities in the U.K. on Wednesday. According to Us Weekly, the pregnant Duchess wore her brunette locks half up and half down in a knotted hairstyle that is sure to become the latest trend. While the ‘do isn’t too farfetched for Kate, the addition of the knot really made waves on the internet today.

“Bundled up in a cornflower blue Sportmax coat, Middleton, 33, modeled a bouncy blowout, complete with curled ends. But instead of the hair being gathered from behind her ears, she left more down, having the style sweep up closer to her temples. Not straying too far from one of her familiar looks, the Duchess secured the tresses in a loose knot at the crown of her head.”

Kate’s new hairstyle was indeed elegant, as Hello Magazine points out. The look was achieved using strands of Kate’s own hair, and wrapping it around a hair elastic. Not only did this keep Kate’s hair out of her face, but it provided her with a classic look that went with her outfit for the day.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kate attended not one, but two charity events on Wednesday. At both events for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and Action for Children, Kate was surrounded by children, which has been her focus since accepting royal duties. At one location, the Duchess painted some pottery that was used to raise money for the charity, and at the other, she took part in a roundtable discussion about how families have benefited from the funds raised by the charity.

Of course, Kate Middleton had her baby bump in tow, and those who weren’t admiring her great dress or her new knotted hairdo were checking out her mid-section. Kate and William are expected to welcome their second child in April. Rumors have been swirling for weeks that the Duchess is expecting a girl, but she and William claim that they don’t know the sex of the child. They are already parents to Prince George, 19 months.
