Kate Middleton showed up for her daughter’s first day of school on Thursday and she debuted a new hairstyle that turned heads.

Princess Charlotte had her first day of school on Thursday, and it was a great day for royal fans all over the world. The 4-year-old, who was joining her brother at Thomas’s Battersea, was accompanied by both of her parents, and all eyes were on Kate Middleton.

The Duchess of Cambridge was impeccably dressed in a pink floral-patterned Michael Kors Carnation dress paired with navy blue pumps. However, it was her new hairstyle that was the highlight of her look!

As reported by HELLO! the duchess’ iconic brunette locks looked brighter and appeared to have undergone a color lift with some sunny caramel highlights. It was also a bit shorter and less full. It looked remarkably different from the brown wavy curls Kate is known for, but it looked spectacular on the mother-of-three. 

The switch-up was perfect for the upcoming autumn months, and it blended with her radiant skin.
