Following the likes of David Beckham and Lily Cole, real-life Princess Kate Middleton has reportedly donated seven inches of her hair to the Little Princess Trust – a cancer charity who creates wigs for children who have lost their hair due to treatment.

It is believed the pregnant mum of two thought up the idea while her hairdresser Joey Wheeler was cutting her long brunette locks at Kensington Palace.

A royal source told Sunday Express: ‘Four months ago Joey persuaded her it was time to take off some of her hair, he said it was getting too long. While Joey was snipping away the idea came to her of doing some good with it rather than throwing it away’.

The hair was reportedly donated under a false name and upon hearing the news, the Little Princess Trust said that it was a ‘great surprise’.

Helen Creese, a spokeswoman for the charity said: ‘It’s a complete surprise. Obviously we’re all absolutely delighted that she donated her hair, and we’re very grateful as well, just as we’re grateful to everyone who chooses to support the charity in this way, and so many people do. We’re assuming that she might have sent the donations anonymously. It’s such a selfless act anyway to donate your hair to help a sick child or young adult.’

Kate Middelton is expecting her third baby in April this year.
