It’s not uncommon for people to take notice when someone dyes their hair so when Kate Middleton does it, the whole world notices.
Royal fans hopped on social media after they saw the Duchess of Cambridge sporting a different look than we’re used to seeing and they have some theories about why Middleton changed her hair color.

Middleton appears to be sporting a lighter look
Prince William’s wife is known for having great hair and recently it appears that she’s been lightening her locks.
Since September, fans noted that Middleton’s been adding more blonde highlights to her mane but it looked even lighter than usual when she attended the launch of the National Emergencies Trust with her husband on Nov. 7. The couple met with survivors of various tragedies including the Grenfell Tower Fire and the London Bridge attack.
Middleton wore a blue belted dress with a red poppy brooch, black pointed-toe court heels, and a black Aspinal of London clutch bag to the event.
The Duchess of Cambridge also had on a pair of sapphire earrings. They were reportedly given to her by William and once belonged to Princess Diana. The earrings matched Middleton’s engagement ring, which also belonged to the prince’s mother. But what most people were talking about was the royal’s hair color.

Middleton’s hair is such a hot topic at the moment that fans took to social media to debate the color.
Anytime, the duchess does something different with her hair people automatically think she’s pregnant but because she doesn’t appear to be concealing a baby bump some have a new theory.
One Twitter user opined that she may be going lighter “to try and look younger and to hide the grey hair.”
Another user was just confused by what color Middleton is trying to achieve writing, “Kate’s hair is getting lighter and lighter and I’m not quite sure why. Is she going blonde or is this it?”
A third user disagreed that Middleton’s color resembled blonde or that she’s trying to make it look that way and tweeted, “She’s brunette. She colored it twice this year, the last being after their private island holiday.”
Another royal also made headlines recently for their new look

Meghan Markle styled her hair in a beehive updo for the One Young World Summit in late October. The response from fans was mostly positive as many posted about how much they liked her new hairstyle and complimented the Duchess of Sussex for changing things up.
Markle completed her look with a red lambskin Hugo Boss skirt, a maroon V-neck sweater by Joseph, and Sarah Flint’s Perfect Pumps in cabernet suede.
