Kate Middleton debuts dramatic new hairstyle in London with Prince William

After years of sporting her trademark midi length hairstyle, Kate Middleton has debuted a dramatic new 'do.
The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out this morning with husband Prince William for ICAP's 23rd annual charity day in London, but all eyes were on her new chopped locks.
The mother-of-two pushed her fringe to the side and debuted her shortest hairstyle yet - but its thickness indicates she is likely still wearing her hair extensions. Kate has one of the most requested hairstyles in the world and is famous for often tending to her own locks before big events.
Kate is pictured joking with staff who were in fancy dress during the charity day.
Last night, she hit headlines once again for wearing one of her late mother-in-law Princess Diana's favourite tiaras at a state banquet in Buckingham Palace.
The dazzling headpiece was a favourite of Diana and was given to her by the Queen as a wedding gift in 1981.
The diamond and pearl-encrusted tiara was made in 1914 and has a strong French influence with a neo-classical design of 19 diamond arches, each cradling an oriental pearl drop.
It was designed by the Queen's grandmother Queen Mary and based on one owned by Mary's grandmother Princess Augusta who married the first Duke of Cambridge.
Her style is never far from the spotlight and her decision to try a fringe again earlier this year earned similar attention.
The fringe, often referred to as the "new botox" for hiding fine lines and wrinkles, is often championed by women looking to boost their look.
Jane Seymour (64) famously said the reason she has stuck with her fringe for so long is because she doesn't want to chemically enhance her face.
