Kate Middleton surprises with a new hair look - and we love it

A hair 'do the Prince William's wife has never worn before

How stunning did the Duchess of Cambridge look at church in Sandringham on Sunday? Prince William's wife was a vision in blue - rocking a striking cobalt blue coat by Catherine Walker, navy Jimmy Choo high heels and a matching bright blue, bow headband by Jane Taylor. On closer inspection, the royal sported a new look when it came to her long hair - it's the first time she has ever worn her hair loose with a headband perching it up! Kate is partial to a headband, having worn the headgear staple three times in 2018, but this is the first time she has rocked this particular look and we love the change.

Kate looked incredible at church rocking a blue headband

Duchess Kate last wore a headband on Christmas Day, when she wore her rich burgundy coat, a red Bayswater clutch by Mulberry and her trusty pair of burgundy Gianvito Rossi heels.

It is the first time she has worn this hairstyle

She wore her hair in her trademark half-up, half down style and secured with it with her coordinating burgundy headband. Also by Jane Taylor once again, her £830 band was made from sumptuous maroon velvet and had a unique ribbon back. During the Christening of little Prince Louis in July, Kate turned to Jane Taylor once again. Wearing her hair in a chignon, her 'Cassandra' cream number featured a thick platform and striking appliqué flowers stitched on the top.
