The Duchess of Cambridge looked chic when she met aid workers from the Ukraine at the Disasters Emergency Committee in London Thursday.
Kate Middleton was joined by her husband Prince William for the official release, and caught the attention of onlookers with its chic and casual look.
The Duchess wore a neutral Reiss double-breasted blazer, a piece she has worn before, with tailored navy trousers, a crisp white t-shirt and black Ralph Lauren pumps.
However, Kate’s outfit wasn’t the only thing that caught the eye of royal watchers, many noticed her flawless and shiny new hair.
Her look was uploaded to the Royal Fashion Police Instagram Pagewhere commentators speculated that Kate had received a keratin treatment in her hair, making it appear straighter than usual.
One fan wrote, “Since the Caribbean Tour I’ve noticed that she keeps her hair straight. I love her new hairstyle but I miss her wavy hair too. What do you think?”
Another replied, “I think she had a keratin treatment before the Caribbean tour in anticipation of the brutal humidity and frizz that would follow!”
Another person echoed those sentiments, writing, “Exactly what I thought too! On previous visits to hot climates, her hair would definitely curl up. I really think she may have received a keratin treatment before the Caribbean and she’s still reaping the benefits :)”
A keratin treatment smoothes and straightens the hair, according to Health line. The process involves “applying products to hair, blow-drying and sealing with a flat iron.” Keratin is a natural type of protein found in hair, skin and nails.
Kate’s newly straight hair has divided some opinions, with one fan commenting, “I miss the wavy hair so much and I’m so sad we didn’t see her wet curls in the Caribbean.”

Kate’s hair has long been the envy of women around the world since she was officially introduced as Prince William’s fiancée in 2010.
Over the years her hair has been styled in every way possible, but more recently Kate has embraced her natural curls.
It will be interesting to see if she continues to opt for a sleeker straight hairstyle or go back to her waves.
