Kate’s Dramatic Chop Stole the Show at Wimbledon

Tags:

She recently spoke quite candidly about her love of tennis, and on July 3, Duchess Catherine transformed from royal to genuine fan as she attended day one of Wimbledon 2017.

Stepping out in a classic polka-dot Dolce & Gabbana frock, a white leather clutch tote by Victoria Beckham, a pair of black stilettos, and over-sized sunglasses, the 35-year-old chatted to the ball girls and boys before heading to the royal box to watch Andy Murray play Russian Alexander Bublik.

But it was Kate’s glam new hairstyle that had us mentally bookmarking the look for our next hair appointment. Looking to have trimmed a few solid inches off her bouncy brunette locks, the mother-of-two showed off a shorter ‘do with a fresh color.

Speaking on a BBC documentary about the tennis, Kate explained it was the soundtrack to her childhood: “Growing up, I obviously watched Wimbledon. It’s been very much part of my family,” she explained. “It’s such [a] quintessential part of the English summer, and I think it really inspired me, when I was younger, to get involved in the game.”

Adding: “It hasn’t changed either. I think that’s what’s so wonderful. You know, everyone’s still there in their whites; Wimbledon still looks as amazing as it did when I was a youngster. You’ve got the strawberries and cream. And every time Wimbledon is on, I’m there thinking, ‘Yes, I can do the same. Get that racket.’ Sadly [I] never, never [have] the same results.”
