Kate Middleton Donates Hair To Charity
Kate Middleton is understood for her luscious long hair — and now it seems she’s been secretly giving it away to charity.
When Kate got her hair cut at Kensington Palace last summer season, 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 decided to ship the hair to a charity that makes wigs for children going by cancer remedies.
Based on the Sunday Categorical, seven inches of royal hair was anonymously despatched to a charity known as the Little Princess Trust. The Herefordshire-based group makes wigs from real hair and donates them to children who have lost their own hair through chemotherapy or radiation treatments.
“It’s lovely to assume that somebody, someplace — in all probability a couple of individual — has received a wig containing Princess Kate’s hair,” Helen Creese, a spokesperson for the charity, tells Folks, adding: “It’s a extremely lovely thought and it’s implausible for raising awareness, plus it’s gorgeous hair — all of us lust after that hair!”
Based in 2006 by dad and mom Wendy and Simon Tarplee in memory egg for hair benefits of their daughter Hannah, who died from cancer in 2005, the charity has since funded over 5,500 wigs for sick kids — both boys and ladies — and it could take something from seven to 10 donations to make only 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.
