Kate Middleton Donates Hair To Charity
Kate Middleton is known for her luscious long hair — and now it appears she’s been secretly giving it away to charity.
When Kate got her hair cut at Kensington Palace last summer, she reportedly advised to her hair stylist, Joey Wheeler (from London’s Richard Ward salon), that they make good use of the hair he chopped off. Between them, they determined to ship the hair to a charity that makes wigs for children going through most cancers treatments.
According to the Sunday Express, seven inches of royal hair was anonymously sent to a charity known as the Little Princess Trust. The Herefordshire-primarily based group makes wigs from real hair and donates them to youngsters who’ve misplaced their very own hair via chemotherapy or radiation therapies.
“It’s lovely to think that someone, somewhere — probably a couple of particular person — has obtained a wig containing Princess Kate’s hair,” Helen Creese, a spokesperson for the charity, tells Individuals, including: “It’s a really lovely thought and it’s fantastic for raising awareness, plus it’s gorgeous hair swept to the side hair — we all lust after that hair!”
Founded in 2006 by parents Wendy and Simon Tarplee in reminiscence of their daughter Hannah, who died from most cancers in 2005, the charity has since funded over 5,500 wigs for sick children — each boys and girls — hair swept to the side and it can take anything from seven to 10 donations to make just one wig.
This isn’t the charity’s first brush with fame! Harry Styles supported the charity in 2016 by cutting off his ponytail and donating his hair. A picture he posted on social media of him holding his lobbed-off hair attracted over two million likes.
