Following her Platinum Jubilee celebrations earlier this month, Queen Elizabeth II is beginning her 71st year as monarch in a new style. The 96-year-old monarch seems to have changed up her characteristic look, as evidenced by the new hairstyle she debuted in images made public by Windsor Castle on Wednesday.
Queen Elizabeth II’s silver strands appear notably shorter at the sides and back in the new photos, which the royal family’s official Instagram account also shared.
“I love the Queen’s new hairstyle!!!” one fan commented, while another added, “The Queen looks wonderful! Her new summer hairdo looks perfect.”
Angela Kelly, a personal assistant to Her Majesty, in the revised edition of her book “The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, the Dresser, and the Wardrobe,” discusses assuming the extra function of the hairdresser during the pandemic.
“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,” she wrote.
“During the first two weeks, I was shaking. I had only done her hair once or twice before while on board the Royal Yacht Britannia. The Queen was so kind as she advised me on the very specific way to put the rollers in.”
