Kate Middleton says her children are horrified by her haircuts

Kate Middleton is wearing many hats while stuck at home during the COVID-19 crisis — and cutting the hair beneath those hats, too.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, opened up about her life in lockdown during a recent video call with fellow parents, and spoke of the difficulty of always pleasing her children Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2.

“During lockdown, we’ve had to take on additional roles that others in our communities or in our lives would have helped us with,” she said. “I’ve become a hairdresser this lockdown, much to my children’s horror.”

The royal might be downplaying her scissors skills. “Kate would certainly trim George and Charlotte’s hair as she is very competent and they are used to home haircuts,” a source told The Sun last year. “Carole Middleton taught both Kate and sister Pippa how to cook and cut children’s hair. To them, it is no big deal.”

Added the insider, “George’s is easy. Charlotte likes her hair off her face and so it’s long enough for a mini ponytail. They both have easy hair to cut.”

Middleton added during this week’s video call that she “personally [feels] pulled in so many different directions,” and described parenting during the pandemic as “exhausting.”
