It looks like Queen Elizabeth IIHas a new look! The British monarch seems to have changed her hairstyle after the Platinum Jubilee earlier this year.
On Wednesday, June 22, Her Majesty the 96-year-old met with Governor of New South Wales Margaret BeazleyWindsor Castle. The queen appears to have switched from her long, straight hair for a more combed-out style in photos. Elizabeth wore a delicate yellow dress with red and blue flowers to complement her apparent cut. The outfit was completed by black shoes.
The queen was last seen wearing longer locks on June 5, when she made a surprise visit to the Buckingham Palace balcony to close her Platinum Jubilee celebrations. The sovereign was dressed in bright green and a set pearls as she waved at a crowd of well wishers after the Jubilee Pageant. An emerald cap, with her signature coils, was also worn by the sovereign.
Since March 2020, the queen’s aide, Angela Kelly, has been styling Her Majesty’s hair. Kelly, 64, shared her experiences, including working with the British royal during the pandemic in the updated version her book. The Other Side of The Coin: The Queen and the Dresser, as well as the Wardrobe.
“From March 2020 onwards I washed the queen’s hair every week, set and styled it, and even trimmed it when needed. My team named it Kelly’s Salon,” Kelly wrote, according to an excerpt obtained by Hello Magazine. “During the first two weeks, I was shaking. I had only done her hair once or twice while on board the Royal Yacht Britannia.”
She continued: “The Queen was so kind as she advised me on the very specific way to put the rollers in.”
Kelly, who began her career at Buckingham Palace 28 years ago, is also the woman behind Elizabeth’s brightly colored wardrobe. She designs and styles the vibrant coats and dresses the queen is well-known for. Her Majesty almost never wears dark colors, instead opting for shades of pink, blue and yellow — a theme that has even inspired Duchess Kate.
“Many of the things that we see the Duchess of Cambridge doing today are things that she’s learned from the queen,” royal expert Bethan Holt told Us Weekly exclusively. “A lot of Kate’s love of skirts came from the queen,” the Queen: 70 years of Majestic Style author said.
