She rarely strays far away from her signature hair style and warm brunette shade. But the Duchess of Cambridge delighted onlookers on Wednesday as she showed off a very sun-kissed look on her latest royal engagement.

The mum-of-three won in the style stakes once again as she opted for a very budget-friendly Autumnal look for a visit to the Natural History Museum in London. However it was her blonde highlighted hair that really stood out, making it look like she’d just stepped off a sun-drenched beach.

And the Duchess of Cambridge gave a nod to her sister-in-law the Duchess of Sussex with her flared olive culottes by high-street brand Jigsaw – with the popular brand recently included in Meghan’s charity capsule collection. The statement pants reportedly cost £130 (AU$236), while she teamed them with a high-necked maroon jumper which came in at just £39 from UK high-street store Warehouse.

However, ensuring she kept some designer in her look, she added a matching £3,000 maroon-coloured Chanel bag to the ensemble and stood tall in comfy maroon heels to match. Celebrity stylist James Johnson complimented Catherine’s lighter hair following the appearance, telling the Mail Online: “These soft lighter pieces help frame her face, keeps the warmth in these colder approaching months.”

“By adding soft pieces of colour it can also help the hair look thicker as it creates more dimension within the hairstyle making it appearing more 3D,” he continued. Catherine was visiting the Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity at the time, to hear how it is championing and helping to protect UK wildlife.

“The Angela Marmont Centre (AMC) is a unique scientific hub located in the Natural History Museum, and is dedicated to the study of the UK’s natural world,” Kensington Palace later revealed on Instagram. “The AMC helps public visitors identify their finds, provides vital training in wildlife identification, and leads research and citizen science projects that are helping to transform our understanding of over 80,000 species of wildlife known to exist in the UK today.”

Catherine first gave a glimpse at her lighter hair when she dropped her daughter Princess Charlotte off for her first day at school recently. And she debuted it again days later on an outing with her husband Prince William outside the Aga Khan Centre in King’s Cross, turning heads in a statement teal gown which fell down to her feet in soft pleats, while clinching in at the waist with a tie-up belt.

At one point, Catherine showed her motherly side as she bent down and chatted to a schoolgirl who offered her a huge bouquet of flowers – offering her a beaming smile as William watched on. The meeting came ahead of the couple’s royal tour of Pakistan from October 14 to 18.

And the duchess also gave a rare update on their four-year-old daughter Princess Charlotte on the outing, according to The Sun. Revealing she likes to cook curry for the whole family, Kate said she often makes a cooler version for the kids – but insisted “Charlotte is pretty good with heat”.
