The Kensington Royal Instagram page has been posting videos of Kate Middleton – either on her own or alongside Prince William – talking to different people over video call throughout the pandemic. The latest video was posted this week and showed Kate and William talking to a student nurse studying at Ulster University.

Fans were quick to comment how beautiful Kate looked in the video.

She wore a black blazer and a white top, and her brunette hair sat in a naturally straight style over her shoulders.

It is clear that Kate’s hair has grown longer over the lockdown, demonstrating that she, like us, does not have access to a hairdresser.

Experts spoke to Express.co.uk about what this reveals about the Duchess and her hair.

Ricky Walters, celebrity hairstylist and the director of London-based Salon 64, says: “The entire nation is being forced to rock the long hair for a while and apparently Kate Middleton is no exception.

“Kate always appears to have healthy, luscious locks and although each hair is fine, it looks as though she has plenty of it,” he adds.

Ricky comments on Kate’s pre-COVID usual hairstyle choices, and how he believes this is now an opportunity to try something different post-lockdown: “Being a royal, Kate always seems to play a very safe game with her hair – something I now feel she can step away from.

“Kate’s long locks, block colour and overall dense head of hair is in need of a post-lockdown makeover.”

Ricky recommends that Kate treat herself to a new haircut after lockdown by “cutting the length a little shorter nearer to the collar bone, slicing in some layers with more attitude, as well as a little disconnected grown-out fringe around the face”.

“I think this would really liven up this princess,” he adds.

The hairstylist also notes that, like many people, Kate may start cutting her hair shorter the older she gets: “I am sure as Kate gets older, she will go shorter and experiment a little more with her hair.”

However, Ricky warns: “It’s important to remember when going shorter you don’t end up ‘Mumsy’ which is where some hard-hitting layers and a splash of colour will work wonders with a new length.”

Looking at photos and videos of Kate during lockdown, Ricky is impressed with the care the Duchess has taken to look after her hair, saying: “I can’t fault Kate for the condition of her hair, and she clearly always takes great care of it. Not a split end in sight and always showcasing serious shine.”

He adds: “Clearly she is well informed, using a great moisturising shampoo and conditioner, as well as a little serum to keep those dry ends at bay.”

Ava Holland, artistic stylist at luxury hair and beauty salon Gielly Green in London, agrees with Ricky: “The hair does look healthy and shiny in her Instagram posts, so I’m sure she has been advised about the best products for her hair.”

However, Ava’s expert advice is that Kate still needs a fresh cut, saying: “Her hair is just hanging there at the moment it needs shaping and layers to give it some life again.”

Ava notes that Kate’s hair looks different now than it did pre-lockdown: “We are so used to seeing Kate with blow dried hair which makes the hair look more voluminous, so it’s strange seeing it that flat.”

Like Ricky, Ava says Kate may “go slightly shorter” as she gets older, but she “wears her long hair well”.

She says: “I don’t think she needs to go shorter just because she’s getting older – as long as the hair looks groomed and healthy, I think you can have long hair at any age.

“It’s nice because Kate has the length to do different up-do styles, giving her a lot of flexibility with looks,” she adds.
