Kate Middleton Is Suddenly Rocking Bangs

Over in Merry Olde England, the Queen just became the U.K.'s longest-reigning monarch, Princess Charlotte has been deemed worth $5 billion, and Kate Middleton went and got a haircut.

Photos of the Duchess of Cambridge leaving Balmoral Castle in Scotland show her sporting side-swept bangs. The royal has been famed for her glossy, long-layered mane, but the new 'do is very Carla Bruni meets every woman on the planet who's trying to grow out their bangs. Don't tell us we've already missed out on the full-fringed Jane Birkin stage, Kate.

Whether the fringe is here to stay or already headed to Bobby Pinsville, it's nice to see the fashion plate dabbling in fresh styles. Today, some shorter layers; tomorrow a lob, perhaps?

Perhaps not. While we don't see K-Middy going bronde or super-short anytime soon — and with those lovely chestnut locks, why would she? — her new bangs do have potential. Tease the hair at the crown, pin it back, and you've got a Brigitte Bardot thing happening. The Queen won't know what hit her.
