How you too can get 'the Kate'

Tidy and controlled yet showing off her beautiful mane to perfection, it’s no wonder the half-up, half-down do is the Duchess of Cambridge’s go-to hairstyle.

It fits perfectly underneath the array of fabulous hats and fascinators that she dons for official events, as demonstrated at the Diamond Jubilee pageant with her fire-engine red headpiece.

And it strikes the perfect balance between demure and daring, allowing the Duchess to show off her girly side while remaining modest and elegant.
