As she walked to St Mary Magdalene's church in Sandringham for a service to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War Gallipoli campaign, Kate gave royal fans serious hair inspiration with her glossy brunette tresses swept back into a side parting and twisted into a low chignon, securing the look with a bobby pin.

Wrapping up warm against the winter cold, the Duchess accessorised with a beautiful black hat which featured floral detailing which perfectly complemented her Michael Kors Collection tweed blazer and skirt.

This marks the first time that Kate has worn her hair tied back since she debuted a fresh new cut in December. Prince George's mother first showed off her new look when she joined Prince William for the ICAP Charity Day, causing waves as she unveiled a new shoulder-length hairstyle.

It also seems that Kate is growing out her fringe, often parting it to the side or wearing it swept back to keep it off her face. The Duchess reportedly has been changing her mind regarding the fringe, and The Sun stated that she told friends: "I was a bit unsure about it. I call it my 'mum fringe'."

With Kate repeatedly stepping out with flawless outfits and beauty looks, royal fans were delighted when it was announced that she and Prince William will be heading on an exotic tour of India and Bhutan in the spring, and many have already begun to speculate as to what looks the stylish royal will choose for the visits.
