Hi, what are you looking for?


Has Kate Middleton been changing her hair to hide her pregnancy?

Kensington Palace just confirmed that Kate Middleton is pregnant with her third child.

The news comes little more than a month after Middleton appeared at Wimbledon with a new haircut — and it got one journalist thinking.

Kate Proctor, a political reporter, noticed that the Duchess of Cambridge has gone for a new look prior to announcing her pregnancy before.

Proctor speculated that this could be a ploy to keep the press focused on her head, rather than her midriff.

So, Business Insider put Proctor’s theory to the test. This is what we found:

First up, Middleton’s most recent pregnancy.

Four days later, Middleton’s hair was noticeably shorter.

She swapped her trademark long, glossy, coiffed tresses for a trendy “lob,” which was styled with some relaxed beach waves.

Kensington Palace announced Middleton was expecting her third child on Monday.

Something similar happened before it was announced that she was pregnant with her first child, Prince George.

On November 8, the Duchess of Cambridge attended a dinner with her trademark coiffed tresses.

Later in the month, on November 27, she arrived at the opening of The Natural History Museum’s Treasures Gallery with a 70s-style long fringe.

Plenty of reports noted this at the time, including this one in BuzzFeed.​

Three days later, on December 3, 2012, St James’s Palace announced Middleton was pregnant for the first time.

With her second pregnancy, there was arguably less of a dramatic new look, but she did appear to experiment on various occasions with different hair styles and hats.

Before it was announced she was expecting Princess Charlotte, she visited a school sporting a half-up-half-down style on July 1, 2014.

And the following month, she wore her hair half up again, this time with the addition of a hat.​

Her pregnancy with Charlotte was announced on September 8, 2014.

This all, of course, could be pure coincidence. But the next time the Duchess opts for a dramatic new look, she could set tongues wagging.
