The Duchess wowed with an eye-catching ponytail

Kate gave her fans major hair inspiration by twisting two sections of the top half of her hair, joining them together at the nape where she secured the look with a hairband that matched her hair colour as closely as possible. For an extra touch of glamour, the Duchess added heaps of volume throughout the length of her locks and swept the her locks to the side. She was later spotted undoing the style, leaving her hair to cascade down into its natural waves. 

Her make-up was equally as striking, with Prince George and Princess Charlotte's mother opting for a hint of winged eyeliner and shimmering eyeshadow for ultimate daytime glamour.

She added twisted detailing for a striking finish

The Duchess was joined by husband Prince William for the visit, where the pair took a tour of the National Football Museum in Manchester's iconic Urbis building. The royal couple also spent some time to meet bright young locals who are making a difference in their communities, at a special reception in their honour.


Wrapping up warm in the cold weather, Kate showed off her style credentials in a chic checked Erdem coat, which she accessorised with navy court shoes and a co-ordinating clutch bag.

The mother-of-two previously opted for a braided updo during a visit to India

It's not the first time that Kate has added a twist to a classic updo. The British beauty floored fans earlier this year during a royal tour of India and Bhutan with William, when she stepped out with her hair swept up into a chignon which featured one of the season's biggest trends – braids.

With her tresses in a low bun, Kate opted for plaited and braided detailing at the nape of her neck for a showstopping look as she met the Prime Minister of India for at New Delhi's Hyderabad House
