The Duchess Of Cambridge made headlines when she stepped out at London's Natural History Museum on November 27 sporting a new hairstyle - cropped, side-swept layers - that quickly earned global attention.
Yesterday, Prince William's wife put her new buzzed-about locks to the test when the pair visited Cambridge for the first time since the Queen conferred the Dukedom on the couple on their wedding day in April last year. During their visit, the couple braved high winds at a hospital opening in Cambridge, waving to subjects from a balcony.
The Daily Mail reports that the Duchess (clad in a MaxMara Belli overcoat and dress with brown suede Aquatalia ankle boots and a chocolate brown clutch by Emmy Scarterfield) was visibly nervous dealing with the windy situation -- and even admitted to one royal subject that she was having second thoughts about the switch-up.
"I told her I loved her new hair style," spectator Joanne Baldwin told the Mail. "She said: "I'm not sure about it. It's a bit windy today." I said don't worry, it looks lovely.'"
During the day in Cambridge, the future Queen also ran into a relative, Dr Penny Barton, first cousin to her father, Michael Middleton, the Mail reports. "She did look a bit surprised, although I think she knew I would be here," Barton told the paper. "The family is terribly thrilled and very very proud because we think she does a good job and it's not easy walking about talking to lots of people and being genuinely interested in who she meets."
