Kate Middleton's Hair May Not Be Real

Are you sitting down? If so, you might wanna stand up. I have some big news. Irish publication The Independent is claiming that Kate Middleton wears hair extensions. I knooooow. I'm just as shocked as you are, and like you, I'm skeptical. But here's the thing: The website has pictures of the Duchess -- bald. Just kidding. But they do have a photo of Kate looking like she very well may be wearing extensions

Moment of silence for everything we thought we knew. 


The Independent published a photo of Kate Middleton and Prince William heading into Buckingham Palace for the Queen's Christmas lunch and pointed out (read: zoomed in on) a few gaps in her hair. To the naked eye, it may not look like much. But to anyone who's ever worn hair extensions, it's pretty obvious after having it pointed out. 

To be honest, before her wedding, I always thought Kate Middleton wore hair extensions, as she's got the shiniest, bounciest, Pantene commercial-est hair I've ever seen. But I remember seeing an interview with Richard Ward, the Duchess' old stylist, where he said something along the lines of how there wasn't "one single extension" in Kate's hair on her wedding day

Even if Kate does have hair extensions, I'm sure they're clip-ins that she very rarely uses, as, no doubt, she has naturally gorgeous hair. But not gonna lie: I kind of love the fact that it looks like she is wearing a weave. It makes her seem just the eensiest bit human. Duchesses. They're just like us. 

Do you think Kate wears hair extensions?
