The Duchess of Cambridge opted for a new hairstyle as she met schoolchildren yesterday - and it stole the limelight, for all the wrong reasons.
Instead of her usual relaxed waves, Kate’s glossy mane was pinned in a half-up, half-down style, back-combed on top, and teased into tight ringlets provoking fans to describe it as 'dated'.
However, as she arrived at Wimbledon today for the quarter finals, the Royal's hair was back to its glossy best.

The 32-year-old looked summertime chic wearing a recycled dress by Australian designer, Zimmerman.
Kate last wore the white lace sundress as she and William attended the Royal Easter Show at Olympic Park in Sydney in April.
Shoppers crashed the website of the Australian designer after the Duchess of Cambridge chose the label for the third day of the couple's Down Under tour.
Today, she paired the knee-length 'Roamer' day dress, which retails at £274 (AUD $495) and has been previously worn by Australian actress Naomi Watts, with a pair of beige corked wedge heels and as usual, carried a small wicker clutch bag.

Equally famous for their swimsuits as well as their sophisticated and delicate clothing, sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann founded their namesake label in 1991 in Sydney.
The much-loved brand has become synonymous with Australian style, and is stocked internationally as well as in boutiques and department stores around Australia.
She also had a red pashmina to hand in case of any chilly breezes later on today as she laughed and joked with husband William in the Royal Box.
Her parents, Carol and Michael, as well as William's cousin Princess Beatrice were also out in force in SW19 today.
An avid fan of tennis, Kate and sister Pippa famously sat front row in the Royal Box two years ago when Andy Murray was defeated by Roger Federer.
As for the tennis, Kate will witness the quarter final match between Sabine Lisicki of Germany and Simona Halep of Romania during the Wimbledon Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.
At 2pm, she will see Murray continue his title defence in the second match on Centre Court against Dimitrov.
It's been a busy week for the new mother who yesterday joined comedian John Bishop at a London Primary School.
Wearing a shocking salmon pink dress by her new favourite label, Goat, Kate sank to her knees to chat to youngsters who cheered and waved the English flag.
The Duchess visited the Blessed Sacrament School in Islington, north London, to view the progress of M-PACT Plus, a project which helps address the difficult issue of addiction in families.
The Duchess launched M-PACT Plus with comedian John Bishop on a visit to Manchester in 2013 when she was pregnant with her son, Prince George.
The project is funded by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry - the vehicle for the trio's charitable initiatives - in conjunction with Comic Relief and two charities of which Kate is royal patron, Place2be and Action on Addiction.
M-PACT Plus provides early support for school children affected by a parent's drug or alcohol misuse.
