Just a few days ago, the royal family announced the happy news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting baby number three!
Kensington Palace's initial statement indicated that the Duchess had been suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, an intense form of morning sickness, and therefore had to cancel an official engagement at the last minute. For that reason, Kate and Prince William's announcement was likely revealed earlier than originally planned, and it certainly took us all by surprise.
But it's been noted that the Duchess may well have a secret method up her sleeve of distracting the world's attention ahead of a pregnancy announcement, to minimize speculation. And it's all to do with her hair.
Pattern is Duchess of Cambridge changes her hairstyle, people concentrate on her head, then announces pregnancy. My gfs called this wks ago!— Kate Proctor (@KateProctorES) September 4, 2017
As the Evening Standard's political reporter Kate Proctor pointed out, she's noticed a pattern that Duchess KAte will change up her hair shortly before announcing she's pregnant. Is this a super stealth means of directing our focus up to her hair, and keeping it firmly away from her blooming belly?
If you take a look at the evidence, it could well be. Here's Kate attending an event at the V&A on June 29th, 2017 - approximately 9 weeks ago, so possibly around the time she discovered she was pregnant - sporting her usual long hair.
But you'll probably remember that just a few days
Now let's go back a few years. Here we are in 2012, shortly before Prince William and Duchess Kate announced she was pregnant with their first child. The royal couple had been married for almost 18 months at this point. The Duchess appeared at a dinner in aid of her former university, St Andrews, on November 8th with her famous long locks.
But just a couple of weeks later, on November 27th, 2012, Kate showed off a new 'do with a fringe while opening an exhibition at the Natural History Museum. It just so happened that the following week, on December 3rd, 2012, the royal pair announced their first pregnancy.
See? We're on to you, Kate! We'll be watching your hairstyles like a hawk from now on.
