An article circulating this morning states that when The Duchess of Cambridge had a significant hair cut in 2017, she donated the hair to a children’s charity that creates wigs for those with cancer.
Written by the Daily Express, the paper claims that Catherine’s hairdresser persuaded her to have a haircut of about seven inches; indeed, we can see over the summer in June time, Kate did sport a significantly shorter ‘do.
The Express writes that it was likely the Little Princess Trust, one of the most well-known wig charities, that received some seven inches of hair from the Royal, but under a different name.
A ‘source’ said that Joey, a hairdresser with Richard Ward’s salon, convinced Kate to go for a shorter look.
While this is a lovely idea, many might be sceptical of this claim. Of course, anonymity might prevent any of the issues that might be associated with such a donation – someone selling the wig to make a profit, and having a real ‘part’ of a member of the Royal Family – but the palace declined to comment on the issue, many note that often, charities will not accept dyed hair (which the Duchess’ seems to be). The difference in length in these photos also does not seem to be seven inches; this task is made even harder by Catherine’s curls.
