Antonia Fraser: Princess Kate doesn’t need to cut her hair in her 40s

A few months ago, 90-year-old Antonia Fraser – a distinguished author and historical novelist – decided to chime in about the Windsors. In her view, Queen Camilla is brilliant and the Duchess of Sussex is terrible. Fraser said that the Sussexes’ interview with Oprah was “worse than a crime; it was a mistake. I just wish vainly she’d shut up. And Prince Harry.” Well, did you also know that Antonia Fraser has some thoughts about the new Princess of Wales? It’s true. Specifically, Fraser has thoughts about the length of Kate’s hair.

Distinguished historian Lady Antonia Fraser applauds the Princess of Wales for continuing to wear her hair long into her 40s.

“I don’t think she should cut her hair,” the 7th Earl of Longford’s daughter tells me at the launch party for Rachel Kelly’s book, You’ll Never Walk Alone.

“Women traditionally cut their hair after [having] children, but she doesn’t need to. She can do whatever she likes. She’s beautiful and she’s a good mother. She gets more beautiful as she gets older.”

[From Eden Confidential, print edition]

It’s a generational thing, to believe that women can’t or shouldn’t have long hair past a certain age. My mother feels that way too and she’s a generation younger than Fraser. I do think “age appropriate hair” is a thing, and I do think that – in general – some women should age out of the more youthful hairstyles. Is Kate one of them? Kind of – I do wonder if she’s going to cling to her long wigs, extensions, falls and sausage curls forever. Will she be “on the throne” and still wearing her hair so long, with that wig plopped on?

That’s something that’s always bugged me about Kate, it’s that she never had a real job and she doesn’t know how to look like a modern, professional woman when she does events. It’s all doll wigs, buttons, bespoke coatdresses, lace and ruffles. Anyway, yes, it’s sad that Antonia Fraser has an opinion on this and that this is really the only thing we can talk about when it comes to Kate. Hilary Mantel was right about Kate nearly a decade ago, it seems. I also think Fraser feels the opposite – she actually does think that Kate should cut her hair, that her hair is too long for a 40-year-old.

    Frazier sure is using the phrase, “Her Hair” very loosely. Kate’s wiglets and bundles do not come from her scalp.

    • SomeChick says:

      Nonsense. She bought it. It is hers.

      And she doesn’t have to cut it. “Age appropriate hair” is a stupid “rule.” Have the hair you want. It’s your life!

      It’s also probably one of the very few things she has any control over.

      Would it look better cut shorter? Probably! But I’m sick of people trying to police women’s personal choices.

      Can’t stand Kate. Wouldn’t cross the street to see her. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to support ageist BS over something so trivial and personal. YOLO. Literally. Have the hair you want!

      • Justwastingtime says:

        Thank you SomeChick, as a woman of a certain age my hair is typically just below my shoulders with choppy layers as that suits me and makes me happy. For many women their hair is their protection and imposing hair rules (among so many others) is just tiresome.

      • Michelle says:

        Came to say much the same, SomeChick. But you’ve said it better.

      • DouchesOfCambridge says:

        I didnt realize age appropriate hair still existed. We can talk about Kate’s wiglets all we want, but I do want her and everybody else to be wearing the hair that they like, that makes them happy, whatever their age is.

      • Fabiola says:

        I agree. It’s so stupid that after 40 you have to have a bob haircut. I like having medium length hair and I do not want to cut it.

  2. Becks1 says:

    The reason I think Kate should cute her hair has nothing to do with her age. It’s that her hair just does not look good or healthy at this current length. I think if she cut off 4-6 inches it would look a lot healthier.

    • Nic919 says:

      Her hair looks like straw which is why she needs a major trim. It doesn’t need to be a bob but the current look is stringy and dry. It looked better a few years ago when it was about 6 inches shorter.

      Plus cutting your hair and letting it regrow is good for the hair. But Kate doesn’t have good hair to keep it that long where it looks healthy. It just looks in the way and she treats it like a blanket.

    • HeyKay says:

      Becks1, I completely agree.

    • Sue E Generis says:

      I remember the time she cut it to just past her shoulders. I thought she looked very nice and fresh then. Kate is ‘jowly’ and the super long hair just drags down her face.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ Yeah, I remember @Sue E Generis. That was in 2017 when Kate had been named, as I recall, a patron at Wimbledon, or some other fancy title. In the lead up to Kate’s appearance at Wimby, all the chatter was about whether or not Meghan Markle would attend that year. LOL

        MM’s under-the-radar romance with PH was in full swing and the tabloids were full of stories and speculation about the lovebirds and about Meg in particular. The tabs printed numerous pics of M’s 2016 appearances at Wimby (a time when few in the public knew MM’s identity). Meg had a low profile then and she’d just low-key met PH on or near July 1 (Diana’s birthday). 🙂 MM was not at Wimby in 2017 b/c Serena was pregnant and did not play.

        Kate was at Wimby early during the 2017 tournament and she was there for the men’s final.

      • HennyO says:

        The longer hair for some years now is the next thing to compete with and cosplay Meghan’s looks and style..

        I thing her hair is in a bad state because of excessive dying..Every appearance it has another colour.

    • Underhill says:

      That’s one of the reasons older women cut their hair: it isn’t just a tradition. We get drier, with less body oil, as we get older. Older women that have long hair will have increasingly stringy dry and frazzled hair, especially at the ends. She will have to cut it at some point, perhaps to a long bob, or go full on long wig. She won’t be able to maintain glossy long hair at fifty.

      • ShockedAndAppalled says:

        I have super long, healthy, curly hair at 51. No sign of any issues. These weird aging stereotypes have got to go. Lots of older women look fabulous with long hair

      • Soporificat says:

        Yeah, I think this has more to do with health status, both overall health so the hair grows out healthy, but also knowing the right products to use to keep it healthy. A lot of modern hair products and styling techniques are murder on hair, just fyi. Anyway, I personally know quite a few women who are over 50 who have thick, long, healthy hair, myself included, and I think it makes them look more youthful, in fact. Also, my 80 year old aunt has beautiful long thick hair, that unfortunately, she keeps locked down in braids! If she got a decent cut and styled it just a bit it would look stunning.

      • Josephine says:

        well into my 50s with hair longer than kate’s. it’s curly and not frizzy or dry. it obviously depends on each person but i think plenty of women past 50 have nice hair. my mom is in her 80s with kick-butt hair still. i will say that we do virtually nothing to our hair, never blow-dry it, use the gentlest of shampoos, shampoo twice a week. there are times when i think that it drags down my face but i personally think it looks better longer than shorter and whenever i go shorter i dislike it.

      • KATHLEEN WILLIAMS says:

        Maybe her diet is so stringent that it lacks the fatty acids and oils to maintain healthy hair.

    • Elizabeth Phillips says:

      In the photos of the state banquet, her hair from certain angles looks like a chin-length bob, and I really like the way it looks on her.

  3. Noki says:

    I have been saying for ages she needs a posh spice bob. There was one year at the balcony for the wreath laying she tucked her hair in. She looked so good and as she enters this new Wales phase she really needs a new look but clearly NONE of the royal women change it up its like forbidden.

    • Ang says:

      While I agree this would look good on her, one of the reasons she probably doesn’t is because her hair is wavy; I have the same hair as her (although I trim mine every 10 weeks). While it looks great that length if it’s straightened and “tamed” as I call it, when it’s not, you look like a mushroom. Every time I cut mine into a bob I love it for a short amount of time, then get tired of straightening it all the time and can’t wait for it to grow out again.

      • Erin says:

        Same, I have wavy/curly hair and I wish I could cut it shorter but at this point I usually just wash and air dry and it shortens up a lot and puffs out. My hair is also fine but I have a decent amount of it but it’s always got frizz no matter what I’ve tried. Fine curly hair sucks.

      • Suze says:

        Does she have wavy hair though? Pictures of her in her twenties show fine straight hair.

      • Jay says:

        Sure, it might mean some upkeep to keep her hair neat and bobbed, but she has unlimited resources and plenty of time. And I wouldn’t say the current sausage curls and corresponding wiglet were exactly low maintenance.

        I personally find the style fussy and not flattering, but whatever – she must like the way it looks. My main criticism is just that she can’t leave her mane alone – she’s always fiddling with it or using it to cover her face.

    • Athena says:

      Meghan should get a really nice short human hair wig and get photographed (papped) wearing it. We’ll see how long it will take from the time the picture comes out to the next spotting of Kate with short hair. And once Kate is seeing with short hair, Meghan shows up somewhere with her regular hair length.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ LOL @Athena 🤣

        I agree with everyone that Kate needs to ditch the wiglets and trim her hair to at least just below shoulder length, exactly the way she had refreshingly styled her hair in 2017 (possibly inspired by MM’s slightly longer straight look with wavy ends circa 2016 Wimby). 😉

  4. Jais says:

    No, women don’t have to cut their hair after 40. Lots of women look great with long hair over 40. There’s lots of factors, like face shape and how the hair texture has changed over time. Kate’s hair looked really good when she was pregnant with Louis and it was shoulder length or just a little longer. Feel like it should be about what looks healthiest and works with the face best. For some that’s long hair and for some it’s something shorter .

    • Shawna says:

      She looked so cute carrying Louis, I agree. Naturally young because she let herself have a bit more weight than she allows herself when she isn’t pregnant. It’s a shame that she is so insecure that she doesn’t genuinely understand what works for her. And it’s an even bigger shame because she looked naturally younger with that harmless bit of extra weight. She wouldn’t need so much work on her face if she was in a place where she could let her body be in the athletic shape it was in college.

      The only reason I am prating about this is because I agree with Hilary Mantel’s original argument. The original deal that Kate signed up for was just to look pretty and give heirs. That was some thing that was put on her from the outside and could have given me a bit of empathy for her. I mean, if you are following news about hereditary monarchy, you can’t act surprised if a woman’s main virtue when she marries in is to create heirs. But with everything that’s happened with Meghan, that ship (the ship of empathy) has sailed.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ @Jais, ITA! Kate looked the best she ever looked during her marriage when she was pregnant with Louis. She seemed to glory in that pregnancy (most likely b/c she knew it would be her last). Kate’s hair was cut shorter that summer, and her pregnancy was announced sometime in August, just before the Vanity Fair cover story about Meghan hit the stands. 😉

        Will hadn’t truly wanted a third child, so the entire pregnancy with Louis was a coup for Kate. As we know, Kate was able to leverage the third pregnancy after Will’s faux pas of being papped Dad-dancing on Commonwealth Day (March 2017) at a ski resort in Verbier with his guys, and cuddling with unknown ladies at the bar. I think Will was a bit antsy and jealous of Harry’s much talked about, but very publicly low-key, whirlwind romance with Meghan, ongoing throughout 2017. 😌

    • Sugarhere says:

      I would indeed advise her against chopping her hair because the eye would automatically be drawn to her facial features, and they are her weakest element, to put it mildly.

      I remember she once sported whiskers and a long fringe, all of which gave her a less matronly look. Overall, Catherine Middleton is plain and no fairy-tale princess material.

      • aftershocks says:

        @Shawna: “It’s a shame that Kate is so insecure that she doesn’t genuinely understand what works for her. And it’s an even bigger shame because she looked naturally younger with that harmless bit of extra weight [while] carrying Louis…”

        You are spot-on @Shawna. 🎯 ITA with your post. With all the money and resources at Kate’s disposal, it’s curious why she can’t get or take better advice and consistently look better. She has no sense of style. But that’s no excuse in her position. Get help.

        My advice: Stop copykeening. If she still smokes, stop smoking. It’s aging and extremely unhealthy. Let up on the Botox FGS. Ditch the wiglets and relaunch the just below shoulder length cut; work on getting treatments for her hair to get it healthy again. Wearing damaging wiglets and too much highlighting and dyeing isn’t helpful. I mean, I really don’t care, but I guess it’s easy to give others advice. Plus, what Kate needs to do and to stop doing is excruciatingly obvious.

      • Bella says:

        What an awful thing to say.

    • SenseOfTheAbsurd says:

      Some of us are just long-haired people, and that’s that. I’ll never cut mine.

      If we could trace the whole ‘women have to cut their hair short at [insert arbitrary age here]’ ‘rule’ to source, it’d end with something nobody gives a damn about, like a Harpers’ Bazaar article from 1938.

    • Deering24 says:

      Yeah, that “cut your long hair at 30, ya crone!” canard is crap. 🤮🤮I don’t think much of Kate, but like any other woman, she has the right to wear it however she pleases as long as she wants to. She could use a trim and more conditioning now and then, though…

    • exactly24 says:

      there is no reason these days that women should ever have to cut their hair at a certain age. How sexist is that. Kate’s hair looks nice. Sorry, I don’t agree with most of CB. We should be able to wear our hair however we want as we grow older. I happen to be 50 and have nice thick, long hair. I always have. Some women don’t have that. Some women do. Mine is almost to my waist and i’m going to hang onto it, as long as I can. When it gets stringy and thin, then i’ll cut it shorter. But I’ll be damned if i let anyone ever tell me how to wear my hair. How do you naysayers even have the balls to tell a woman in our century, how to wear their hair? It isn’t yours! If she wants to wear sausage curls til she is 80, then you go girl! It’s not like you will be taking hair advice from her! live and let live!

  5. Jttrain says:

    It’s not the length. She needs to cut it to seem interesting and less dated.

    • L84Tea says:

      I agree with this. As long as the public has known who Kate is–and it goes back as far as 2002-2003’ish–she has sported this same look of long hair. There’s nothing wrong with long hair, but when I look at her, I only see someone who is so scared to try anything new, to make any little change. She dipped her toe in a little change during her pregnancy with Louis, and she looked great. But the Jennifer Aniston syndrome kicked in and she went right back to her safety net of long little girl hair. Kate is a weak person in so many areas of her life–her work ethic, her self-esteem, her sense of self–and her hair is just another shield to hide behind. She doesn’t have the guts to do something as simple as trying a new hairstyle because she is THAT boring and lackluster. She’s going to cling to that college girl hair as long as she can.

      • Kat says:

        I feel attacked by this comment lol. 30 and scared to cut my long hair. If this is Kate’s reason, I can understand it haha. I do think she would look fresh with a new look.

      • Longhairdontcare says:

        Geez maybe she just likes her hair long and it makes her feel good about herself? God forbid it’s just personal preference…. Her long hair means she’s weak, boring, gutless and lackluster. Got it

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ You are entirely missing the point @Longhairdontcare. Of course, Kate can continue doing whatever she wants. She doesn’t have to cut off all of her hair, but she def needs to ditch the wiglets, get a trim and get some healthy conditioning treatments. It’s about what looks better for her, and what suits her better.

        Kate doesn’t have a good sense of style, but she has the resources to get help. Yet, she is so insecure and mean-spirited that she continues to rely on copykeening, which is pathetic. She’s all over the place sartorially, halfway decent sometimes, but never quite putting a look together with the right accessories.

        Ultimately, it’s about what’s on the inside, and fixing that first. Because what’s on the inside ends up showing on the outside.

      • Nic919 says:

        Part of the reason is because William likes women with long hair and she wouldn’t change anything to affect that. Perhaps now she might, but it’s unlikely.

        Also hair grows back. So many women are afraid of getting their hair cut because they think it makes them look less feminine. No one is saying you need to get your head shaved, but getting a short hair cut once in your life should be something every woman tries. And if they don’t like it they can grow it back. Hair length shouldn’t be a crutch and for so many women it is.

        And no one is telling kate she needs short hair because she’s 40. However she does need better hair care because her hair looks dry and stringy. And she never had it this long until Meghan started wearing it at that length. The major difference is that Meghan’s hair looks full and healthy.

  6. HeatherC says:

    I’m over 40, actually older than her. My hair is about the same length. Yet, though I don’t have access to all the services and products that she does, my hair looks in better condition! I don’t plan on cutting my hair, the last time I chopped my hair was when my son was about 2, because he was entering the messy toddler stage and it was just too much with long (at the time really long) hair (messy hands, messy body, sticky everywhere lol)

    But not all her hair is hers, as we all know. I don’t think she should chop her hair because she’s over 40. I think if she’s not going to take care of her hair and her fake hair, then why does she bother?

    Her hair, when not touched up with a shine serum, looks dry, damaged and unmanaged.

    • Nic919 says:

      The real issue is that Kate’s hair isn’t that great and it’s been her only calling card. It looked better a while back, but the current length looks dry most of the time and not healthy except for the extensions that peek through.

      Plenty of women in their 40s have long hair but they tend to keep it healthy looking and styled professionally so no one really notices. With Kate her hair just looks like a mop, especially in that last few years. And she never has it that long until Meghan wore hers that long. Which is of course another issue.

    • aftershocks says:

      ^^ On target @Nic919! Exactly! 💯

      @Longhairdontcare: “Her long hair means she’s weak, boring, gutless and lackluster. Got it.”

      LOL! No one said that Kate’s long hair equates to her being ‘weak, boring and gutless.’ 🙄 Honestly, Kate could wear any hairstyle and still be 100% boring. 😉

  7. Lissen says:

    I’m not sure that long hair is necessarily a youthful hairstyle. Some women just don’t feel confident enough to wear shorter hair – oh dear, people can see my face!

    I’ve older friends who kept their hair long well into their 70s. One in particular always wore her grey hair in a bun. Then one day she had it cut and bam! She instantly looked 10-15 years younger. After receiving multiple compliments, she said she should’ve cut her hair sooner. She just didn’t feel confident enough.

    • Harla A Brazen Hussy says:

      I’ve rocked a pixie cut for years and the most frequent comment I hear from other women is how brave I am, like WTF? It’s just hair! Of all the things I’ve braved in my life, cutting my hair doesn’t crack the top 20.

      • BeanieBean says:

        Same here. And women frequently tell me they’d love to cut their hair like mine, but their boyfriend/husband/SO wouldn’t like it. I say nothing to that, but seriously, it’s your head! Wear your hair however you like! It’s just hair!

      • Nic919 says:

        I had my hair even shorter than a pixie cut but have since grown it much longer. However because my hair grows back quickly I don’t have issues chopping off several inches to give it a fresher look. It’s better for the hair anyway.

        As for men dictating the style, unless they are the hairdresser maintaining it, they should never tell a woman that they want it a certain way.

  8. girl_ninja says:

    Long hair, short hair. She is a bedraggled, lazy mess and a racist mean girl. Periot.

  9. Blue Nails Betty says:

    Women should wear their hair however they want. The idea that a hairstyle belongs to an age group is silly.

    It boggles my mind that the Sussexes gave one (1) interview to Oprah and their haters act like there was a year long tour of interviews along with standing on corners yelling and handing out anti-royals pamphlets. Meanwhile, the RF, their toadies, and the British media literally will. not. shut. up. about Harry and Meghan.

    • WiththeAmerican says:

      Yeah people can miss me with the she needs to cut her hair because she’s 40 business. The fact is people have different types of hair, not everyone can wear a cute bob or long hair or a pixie cut. It depends on thickness and texture and face shape.

      The issue with her hair is that she wears it in ringlets like a child. She could easily do Meghan’s long hair style, a very modern style with some layers (some of her layers are also fake hair, everyone wears fake hair these days). But it looks good.

      Look at Demi Moore. She wears her hair long and it looks great.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ Kate needs to at least give her hair a healthy trim, conditioning treatments, and ditch the wiglets. It’s Antonia Fraser and the writer of the article who brought up the age factor. As others in this thread have pointed out, it’s more about what suits each individual personally in terms of bone structure, facial features, lifestyle, etc.

        Kate’s hair issues largely have to do with its unhealthy condition and her overuse of wiglets, her lack of suitable styling, and her ongoing inconsistency. Kate copykeens instead of getting help to find out what works best for her. As I mentioned earlier, working on one’s inside fitness is as important as taking better care of one’s outside appearance.

  10. Laalaa says:

    I think every woman, including her, should do whatever she f-in wants.
    It’s her hair, if she wants it long and damaged, so be it.
    I have it long and slightly damaged but I don’t want to wear it shorter because shorter does not suit me, and that’s my choice, jesus.

    • Elsa says:

      Right??? I’m 61 and have long hair. It looks good but I hate dealing with it. I’d do the shortest pixie on earth if could just for the ease. But it doesn’t suit me!

      • Lady D says:

        At 62 I have long hair and it’s not going anywhere. In the summer it turns the colour of gold, you should see it shine. It’s also turning white in the sunlight now too.
        I had a pixie cut once. Never again.

    • SenseOfTheAbsurd says:

      My hair short is the drabbest, mousiest, dullest, most unmanageable crap ever, but long it turns into fabulous pre-raphaelite waves and I hardly have to do a thing. Once auburn, now with silver streaks. Also, I can do all the braids and things, but have zero clue how to do blow-drying, straightening and all that, and don’t really fancy having to learn.

  11. Solidgolddancer says:

    She needs a new hair style, not just to cut her hair because she’s over 40. There are plenty of women over 40 with long hair styled right.

  12. Eurydice says:

    Meghan is the same age as Kate. Meghan has long hair. Meghan does not look dated. The difference is that Meghan’s hair looks healthy and Kate’s does not.

    • Nic919 says:

      This is the issue. It’s not the long hair it’s that it hasn’t looked healthy for a while.

    • Persephone says:

      All true.
      And as long as Meghan has long hair, Kate will too.

      • Jais says:

        The day that Meghan’s hair is cut shorter is the day Kate will begin trimming her hair shorter. Perhaps kate will surprise us but it’s unlikely.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ Yep, it’s the constant copykeening insecurity, over-highlighting, and overdone wiglets. It’s led to Kate’s current situation of unhealthy hair.

        Another thing I haven’t seen remarked upon yet is how blatantly Antonia Fraser is NOT telling the truth. Kate is def NOT looking better as she gets older. Quite the opposite. Plus, the tabs need to stop telling us all the time how great and fabulous Kate is. If that was true, they wouldn’t need to constantly tell us. 🥱

    • lamejude says:

      Letizia of Spain has long hair, and looks professional and age appropriate.

      Kate’s long hair looks juvenile and it’s unflattering.

      • Jen says:

        Letizia has also been far more willing to embrace hair experimentation, both in changing up the length more (short bobs at times, both sleekly straight and curly,) and less conservative updo styles.

  13. Normades says:

    Wow her hair comments are crazy. I love seeing young women with very short or buzzed hair and older gals with long locks. Or vice versa, who cares!

    That said in the above pics Kate’s hair just looks fake and dated. Just get a Lob lady!

    • antipodean says:

      @Normades, you have absolutely encapsulated how I feel about women’s hair. I have very thick, but fine hair, and had it long till I was about 25. Then I just got sick of it, all the washing/drying etc, so had a pixie cut from then. When the pandemic hit I decided to just buzz off the lot of it, and it was so liberating, and felt so good I have just continued to get it buzzed every few weeks. I am absolutely beyond caring what anyone else thinks about it, but I have been very pleasantly surprised how very few people even comment on it now. My friends are all used to it, and Mr Antipodean loves it, he even gives me a trim up with his buzzer every now and then! It has also made my transition from gray to white so much easier. I love it! Hair can be a security blanket for some women, but at the end of the day she should only have to please herself. Different lifestyles require different coiffures!

  14. Digital Unicorn says:

    Its not the length of the hair thats the issue – it’s the state of it. There is no shape, style or body to it – it looks like the decaying corpse of Cousin It. It looks dry and listless. All the dying and extensions/wiglets have clearly damaged her real hair – a good hair cut will allow it to grow back maybe in a healthier state.

    • Elizabeth says:

      How hard can it be for her to deep condition her hair once a week? Have regular trims. Stop blow-drying her hair so much. Use vegetable dyes instead of harsh chemicals.

    • Jaded says:

      Her restrictive eating probably has a lot to do with how dried out it’s looking these days. When my sister developed EDs her once long, thick chestnut hair started falling out by the handful and got that dried up texture even though she didn’t dye it or use excessive heat styling it.

        This. I had the same experience.
        But Kate has more resources than teenage me had … I wish she’d let someone help her with her hair. And, more seriously, with her eating issues.

  15. aquarius64 says:

    The overall takeaway is that Kate serves the Crown for her looks only.

  16. Cerys says:

    I think Kate should trim her hair but not because of her age. It looks awful at it’s current length and shows off the wiglets too much. She had it a bit shorter a few years ago and it looked much better. It’s too straggly and dated just now. I agree that Kate is so lacking in substance that her clothes and hair are the only things people can comment on.

  17. Amy Bee says:

    As Hilary Mantel said Kate’s a mannequin that other people put their own aspirations on. Because she’s such a lightweight and doesn’t say anything all the press can talk about is her hair and clothes. Apparently KP has stopped giving the Royal rota information about her clothes because she wants the focus to be on her work. But that can only happen if she says something. You can understand why she’s jealous of Meghan.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      It’s too late to put that genie back in the bottle – her appearance is the only thing the press has had to talk about her for years. There IS NOTHING ELSE.

      She’s a vapid airhead – always has been and always will be.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ 💯 @Digital Unicorn 🎯

        Yet, Kate has the resources to get healthier and to get help in looking better consistently, without constantly relying on Botox and copykeening. As I said earlier, it’s also about working on her inside fitness. But yep, mayhap that ship has sailed.

    • Deering24 says:

      “ Apparently KP has stopped giving the Royal rota information about her clothes because she wants the focus to be on her work. But that can only happen if she says something.”

      Or actually _does_ something, for crying out loud. 🙄🙄

  18. Harla A Brazen Hussy says:

    Women of any age should wear their hair any damn way they want! Personally I have a pixie cut because 1) it looks better for my face shape; 2) I spend no time styling it or fussing with it; 3) I like it. My only comment about Kate’s hair is that it needs a good trim and a conditioning treatment.

  19. Lobot says:

    This discourse unsettles me a bit. Are we saying that she would simply look nicer with shorter hair in that it would suit her current face/hair texture better? That’s one thing, but it sounds like you may be endorsing a moral idea that women “should” cut their hair after a certain age, or it’s somehow gross or offensive that they should even try to look nice with this feature. Potentially I may be feeling a bit heartbroken about this since I’m in my 40s and I think that my (still healthy) long hair is one of my dwindling nice features! 🙁 So is it just considered laughably pointless or somehow icky for me to even try to leverage this and believe that this could possibly be attractive?

    • WiththeAmerican says:

      Rock your long hair!

    • Becks1 says:

      Wear your hair long if you want! I am almost 41 and I have long-ish hair (just past my shoulders) and I don’t see myself cutting it shorter any time soon. My face is too round, short hair just makes it look rounder.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      It’s not the length of hair at her age that’s a problem, it’s her hair itself. Julianne Moore is over 60 and has fabulous long hair, that looks great on her. Kate’s hair is not fabulous, and does not look great on her, that’s the point being made. I’m over 50 and not ready to cut my long hair, but I take care of it and work to keep it healthy. And I have nowhere near the money, time and resources to devote to it that Kate does.

    • BeanieBean says:

      You should google Betsey Johnson. She wore/wears her hair long, in pigtails with bangs, and did a cartwheel on the runway at the end of every fashion show well into her 60s and maybe even 70s. Be yourself! Me, I like my pixie cut, in large part because I barely have hair anymore. It was always fine & thin, then got super thin over 20 years ago, and there you go. Pixie cut, it is. Zero fuss or time involved.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Lobot, no! I bet you look great! I’m with you. I had absolutely terrible hair when I was little, and I spent my entire childhood & teen years wanting long hair and being jealous of all of the other girls who had it. It only started looking decent once it was no longer my mother’s responsibility and I had the resources to get Japanese straightening done every few months. It took me so. many. years. to get long hair, and I love it, and will keep it for as long as I can. Wear it exactly the way you like it!

      ETA: the issue a lot of people seem to have with Kate’s hair is that she has poorly blended extensions, which I don’t, and I doubt you do, either— so that’s a huge factor, too. I seem to be alone here, but I like Kate’s hair.

      • Kittenmom says:

        Wow, do we have the same mother? LOL. You have just written my story – except I didn’t need straightening – I needed the exact opposite. Imagine growing up in the Era of Big Hair (80s, natch) and having a mom that forced bowl cuts on fine, limp hair (“You just really don’t look good with long hair!”) that couldn’t “feather” to save its life. As soon as I headed to college, I let it grow and grow and grow…

      • Lorelei says:

        @KittenMom OMG I wanted to get it “feathered” like all of my friends but it was a lost cause. I was devastated at the time (sixth grade-ish)

  20. Watson says:

    Kate’s hair isn’t the issue…

    • Cessily says:

      No it isn’t her hair that is an issue, women should be allowed to wear their hair any length and style that they are comfortable with no matter what age they are. I’m mid 50’s and my hair is longer than hers and I’ve always worn it long. To me it’s easier.

  21. C says:

    I love long hair at all times, mine doesn’t grow long to my sorrow but I keep it as long as it will go, I’ll never have long hair so I’m always for it, lol. This is the one thing I’ve consistently liked about her appearance, but I have no idea why it’s so dry and damaged lately.

  22. Kit says:

    I am in my early 50s , still have thick curly long hair, l dont think.l will cut it up as it just doesn’t suit my face type, but Williams friends , de ladies that he hangs out with all have long hair , she will never cut it !

  23. crazyoldlady says:

    The notion that women of a certain age should have a certain hairstyle – is ageist and anti-woman. If you find yourself judging another person’s hair choices — you are part of the problem and should invest time in assessing your own prejudical leanings. It’s not a huge leap from hair to what “women should be wearing” or “weight” or “sexual orientation” and/or a myriad of other inappropriate ways folks get into the business of judging others’ choices. I’m not a Kate fan – but I’m not going to pretend anyone has any valid reason to comment on her hair style.

    • Haylie says:

      I’m all for people addressing their prejudices.

      Now let’s see Kate address hers with her racist lie about Angry Black Meghan making her cry, and using that to launch a years long national press attack, where Meghan should shut up, know her place, and just go away.

      Or is hair prejudice a more pressing issue?

      • Nic919 says:

        Kate still hasn’t corrected that story either. She’s still riding on the effects of setting up Meghan as the angry black woman. Pretty cruel to do that to your own sister in law, especially knowing she was at one point pregnant and suicidal. Let’s stop and think about what kind of person is ok with doing that to their own sister in law. Their hair length is pretty irrelevant when consider the whole person.

    • WiththeAmerican says:

      There is a difference between judging her hair style vs saying all women over age x should not do y.

      no one is going to be shamed into not judging Kate’s hair. No valid reason to judge her hair? She is literally decoration. There’s nothing else to judge her on. Her hair is her achievement.

      The royal family exists to be a tourist function. They do this by dressing up for pictures and wearing gaudy stolen jewelry and wigs. They know it’s important to look a certain way, that’s why Camilla got a makeover (and wears hair pieces).

    • BeanieBean says:

      We get a set of photos with every posting. Commenting on the images presented is obviously going to be a component of participating in this gossip experience! Of course there’s a valid reason to comment! From what I’ve read today & previous articles on Kate, most people aren’t saying she should cut her hair because of her age, but rather that’s it’s unflattering, boring, etc. Me, I think Kate once thought of her hair as her crowning glory & is sticking with long hair no matter what. I also read somewhere that a lot of us retain the hairstyle we had at the happiest time in our lives, so I’m thinking for Kate that was when she was at university.

  24. MsIam says:

    Good to see one of Kate’s contemporaries sticking up for her, lol. Anyway, I think the argument about long hair on older women is kind of over now. You have so many women in their 40s and beyond with long or longer hair and they look great. Dr. Jill has longer hair for a mature woman and she looks amazing. I think as long as the style is cut to suit your face you should wear it. I could never rock that long straight parted in the middle look even in my 20s, so I avoided it like the plague.

  25. Lizzie says:

    Antonia is showing her age or maybe her culture. I’ve never heard of cutting your hair being identified with having children. Short hair was a trend for the Diana decades, and it’s still popular. If you think short hair is easier than long hair I would disagree. I’ve had my hair short and every time I get it cut, I get lots of comments that I look younger.
    Actually, for me, my age has me wearing longer hair. It’s thinning and looks terrible when short so I’ve grown it out long enough to wear a cute bun.

    • Concern Fae says:

      No, that was a thing. Married women should dress like married women, in a different style than single women. Totally disagree, although the way some women dress like their teen and adult daughters in a seemingly competitive way does seem unhealthy (as opposed to just having the same body type and general style).

      I really enjoyed Lady Antonia’s history books back in the day. Of course, they were about royalty and she’s the daughter of an earl, so not surprised she’s turned out to be a massive suck up snob.

    • Deering24 says:

      Yeah, it’s more a generational thing. Women were “supposed” to cut their hair short to show they were married/grown up/a mom/“getting old.” It’s only recently—the 90s, I think—that women started tossing that fashion canard in the trash. Now my mom has long hair, but she cut hers once she became a gym teacher fresh outta college back in the late 50s. She was tired of taking care of it, and it was getting in her way.

  26. Woke says:

    It’s Camilla’s hair that I have an issue with It’s such an old fashioned hairstyle that ages her. QE had an old fashioned hairstyle too but it was more classic.

    • Jaded says:

      I read somewhere that she keeps it in this old-fashioned style because Charles likes it… SMH.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Woke, I said for years that QE needed to update her hairstyle. I swear she was committed to the 1950s.

      I’ve had (really) long hair and short hair. I’m 67 and have shorter hair and that’s a choice, because long hair is a lot of work. Now I just blow dry and I’m done. My face is oval, so long hair now really drags my face down. If Wails is determined to keep this look, she needs to cut off some of the damaged hair and spend a little money on argan oil. She would be surprised and what a difference it would make.

    • Prairiegirl says:

      Anne’s hairstyle also ages her. She hasn’t changed it since the 1970s.

  27. tolly says:

    It’s not the length, it’s the pile of extensions that dates and ages her. That look was popular with young celebrities when the Twilight movies were coming out, but almost all of them have moved on to more natural-looking volume and texture. Kate is one of those women who think that clinging to their mid-20s hair and makeup makes them look young, but it doesn’t.

  28. Mooney says:

    Long story short, she’s only keeping her hair long because Meghan’s not getting a haircut.

    As for the age factor, it’s just a load of crap. My grandmother had black waist length hair which she only cut a few months before her death because she was bedridden. And she only had a few silver strands. And my maternal grandmother kept her hair long till her death.

  29. Tursitops says:

    One would hope that an internationally famous person in her forties would garner more intellectually stimulating commentary than the state of her hair. Her charitable work, her or her views on what can be done to address global issues come to mind. The fact that people are solely focussed on what this vacuous mess wears and how she wears it is telling and sad. What a missed opportunity for meaningful change, but her pathetic history of half-efforts never portended otherwise.

  30. Over it says:

    Judging by this Fraser woman age, I am going to say she is either blind in one eye and can’t see out the next or her memory is failing her . No one who can see or in their right mind can tell me that Kate is looking better the older she gets. It’s the complete opposite. I just looked at those pictures with Meghan and Harry in the Elton tribute and I couldn’t help thinking how good Meghan looks . Her skin is flawless and to be honest I think she is aging backwards. I look at kate and I see someone who has been hard done by life . You won’t know this woman has never had a real job or been pampered her entire life. She looks bad and dries up and out .

  31. Lizzie says:

    Who is this in response to? Is there some big campaign for mrs wails to cut her hair that Antonia decided to take a stance?

  32. SURE says:

    I loved that Diana only once tried to grow out hair. A beautiful princess with a short unisex hairstyle still being seen as the fairytale princess was surely a win for feminism.

  33. Beverley says:

    As long as a certain sublimely gorgeous Black Duchess wears her luscious locks long, OfWillliam will NEVER cut hers.

  34. CC says:

    Considering Fraser has written books on French History, I feel like this quote from “The Princess Diaries” is appropriate:
    “Hair or Voltaire? I want to talk about Voltaire!”

  35. NG_76 says:

    I don’t feel its anyone’s business how long someone keeps their hair?

  36. tamsin says:

    I’m one of those people who thinks Kate should stick to her coat dresses and she looks rather good in them. No ordinary person swans around in them- they seem to be unique to royal women. The coat dress was becoming a “Kate” style that she could call her own. Kate doesn’t need to strive to look professional in the ordinary sense. However, Kate is capable of everything the monarchy expects of a female royal- produce heirs and never let people know what you think.

  37. Slippers4life says:

    Women of any age can do anything they want with their appearances. If you have a subjective opinion about any aesthetic you have that right, but are we really saying “age appropriate hair”? What the misogyny?

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Slipers4life, you know what just occurred to me? That I don’t recall comments about age and length of hair on this site until today. I could be wrong, but everyone has been addressing the damaged hair and the hair extensions being poorly worn. I think this Antonia Fraser is talking about herself. OfWilliam can do whatever she wants, but she needs to see to the health of her hair.

  38. Sumodo1 says:

    Hilary Mantel, who died recently in September, was famous for her frosted eyeshadow, pencil-thin eyebrows, and non-descript hair. Just sayin’!

    • Nic919 says:

      And Mantel’s words will last forever because her legacy is far more than being the skinniest and tallest woman in the room. After a decade in the public eye can kate offer anything ?

  39. A says:

    The concept of “age appropriate hair length” is a white person thing. I’m Indian, and it’s not a thing where I come from. Women of all ages have long hair. Granted, that in itself can be a stifling beauty standard for a lot of people, but the idea that women NEED to have their hair a certain length, at a certain age, is not a thing everywhere. It’s also a bonkers idea.

    Now, I criticize Kates hair length not bc of her age. I criticize it bc she’s a liar, and a racist, and a deeply, profoundly unkind, discourteous human being, whose shallow interests only go so far as demanding that KP put out vanity statements insisting she doesn’t wear wiglets (she does), or doesn’t inject Botox (she does).

    At this point, I also think that anyone who defends her, and criticizes Meghan for speaking out against Kate’s heinous lies, is a liar and a racist themselves. Antonia Fraser can stay trashy and ashy.

    • Eurydice says:

      I think it’s more a generational British/American fashion thing. At first it was proper for women to have long hair, then in the 1920’s it became youthful and modern to have short hair, and then in the 1960’s it became youthful and modern to have long hair, after that it became youthful and modern to shave half of it off and dye the rest purple…

      • OriginalLeigh says:

        I’m American and I agree with A that it’s a White thing….

      • Eurydice says:

        @OriginalLeigh – I find this confusing because I’ve never seen this in my own White, non-American culture. On the other hand, it used to be that widowed women would have to wear black for the rest of their lives – nobody believes that now and I think the same is true about long hair.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Eurydice, I agree that the length of hair doesn’t matter anymore. I’ve always just done what I wanted. Frankly, I think this was in protest to Joan Rivers. Many decades ago she said that older women should never wear their hair long and that ALL women should get face lifts. RIIIIIIIIIGHT. I’ve rebelled since.

    • L4Frimaire says:

      Very well said A. That’s how I feel about this too. The hair is irrelevant, while that person is just not a person with ethics or honor. There’s a huge difference between being “nice” and having integrity, no matter how much glitter, extensions and rictus grins one dishes out. Fraser sound ridiculous and very inarticulate for such a renowned writer.

      • OriginalLeigh says:

        @Eurydice – I didn’t mean to imply that this is a thing in all White cultures across the world. You said above that it’s an American/British thing and my point was that I have only heard this from White women in America. I’ve never heard Black Americans or other people of color in America say that but that’s just my lived experience.

    • Jais says:

      Say it, A!

  40. First comment says:

    I don’t think that there’s age appropriate length for the hair… as long as it’s healthy … which in Kate’s case isn’t as we can see from the photos… Kate, however, is gonna stick to this length no matter what, because that’s the thing that defines her… and because of the botox and all the other procedures to her face… she needs her (!) long hair to distract from the surgical failures in her face…

  41. February Pisces says:

    Kate’s hair looks so dead, it does nothing for her. Those big barrel waves makes it look even more dated. But like Jennifer aniston, she has an emotional attachment to long hair and will never cut it.

  42. L4Frimaire says:

    I’m disgusted how she says the Sussexes should just shut up- F her. No opinion on the hair length. She’ll look more like her mom once she cuts it. All the royal women over 40-50, except Charlene of Monaco, seem to have long hair, for the updos. Such a random topic being centered by this person.

  43. Luna17 says:

    I think her hair is fine. Why is it always Others telling women how they should wear their hair and dress as they get older but they never do the same with men? To me her hair just looks like normal hair. I also have long hair and I have kids and I’m 35 and i never style it. Kate’s hair probably looks better than mine since she has someone do it and to my untrained eye it looks fine. Do you want, ladies!

    • Lucky Charm says:

      Her hair looks dry, damaged, unconditioned, and has split ends. If someone doesn’t have the time to take care of long hair, then they should cut it to a manageable length. Healthy hair looks good on everyone, no matter what length it is. Men generally don’t have long hair, so not really a comparison there.

    • Shannie says:

      I agree with you, Luna17! It just looks like normal hair to me

  44. kay says:

    I think she has long hair because she is not confident and hides behind her hair. A shoulder length hair cut would look better.

    What about Prince William – how come he has hair all of a sudden. I’m sure he has had a hair implant.

  45. equality says:

    This woman is supposedly a historian and yet believes people shouldn’t be allowed to tell their own story and talk about a lived experience? And all she can come up with to talk about is hair?

  46. Therese says:

    I don’t care how old a person is and what style they choose: I’m just not a fan of the too-long hair that many adopt now days. It’s just too long, as in the way too long style of Lindsey Lohan. I actually think that look is dated now. It doesn’t bring attention to the face, and there is no movement. It’s not cute or attractive.

    • Deering24 says:

      Ugh. What exactly does looking “dated” mean? This is a dated holdover from the days when fashion magazines and society dictated what was in or out. Heck, there are trendy cuts now that look straight from the 20’s or 60s. Women should wear what they like and what makes them feel good, no?

      • Therese says:

        I take your point, even though you preface it with an ugh, which is judgmental. Please let me draw your attention to my first sentence: “I don’t care how old a person is or what style they choose”. I was merely stating my personal preference, for we all have one. I have a soft spot in my heart for Lindsey Lohan, and wish her well. Also wish I could tell her to get a different hairstyle. I agree with you that women should wear what they like and what makes them feel good, but if you read below the rules of commentary:

        We aim to be a friendly, welcoming site where people can discuss entertainment stories and current events in a lighthearted, safe environment without fear of harassment, excessive negativity, or bullying.

        I’m tired of that hair style on certain celebrities: it’s just my preference. I myself have thought of getting my hair marcelled, a hairstyle from the 20’s introduced by a Parisien celebrity stylist named Marcelle. I digress. I wish you well, I fundamentally agree with you, and believe I have the right to express my preference without being jumped on. I don’t think I have to be perfect or state everything perfectly.

  47. [insert_catchy_name] says:

    Women should wear their hair the way they want. Even if it doesn’t “suit” them, if if it’s what you want, *shrugs*.

    I DO feel however, that the reason many women over 40 cut their hair shorter is because when your hair starts greying, it often changes texture and becomes harder to look nice without a lot more effort.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      [insert_catchy_name], you are very right. When the grey got a toehold, I realized I needed to do something. I cut it short and had it that way for a while, but grey was a really bad color for my coloring. I’ve still got it short, but now I color it. Soooooooo much better. I did grow it longer, but it was a lot of work so I’m staying the short.

  48. Greeneyedgirl says:

    I hate this narrative that after a certain age women have to cut their long hair. I will be 37 in a few weeks and my hair is long…about to the middle of my back. It’s thick and naturally wavy (but I get keratin treatments to straighten it). I also had shorter hair to my collarbone in my 20s. The issue with Kate’s “hair” is that it just isn’t flattering…age has nothing to do with it. The color doesn’t suit her skin tone, the sausage curls look childish, and she’s always fidgeting with it. I get the feeling it’s her security blanket. Perhaps if she wore it stick straight in a chocolate brown it would look better even if it was still long. A sleek bob would suit her also…but that’s too modern

  49. Carrie says:

    It’s 2022 and we are discussing the length of a woman’s hair. OMG.

  50. MangoAngelesque says:

    Plenty of women have long hair at older ages, or after having children (those don’t always go together, after all.)

    Meghan has long hair, she’s older than Kate, and her hair is lovely. Kate’s long hair doesn’t look good, primarily because it doesn’t look healthy and drags her face down. I’m not saying she should have a short haircut, but she would look better with a *different* haircut and style.

    But, she got praised SO much for her hair in those early years of marriage, that she’ll never change it. Even William playfully mentioned her hair at times. She likely sees it as “iconic” or her trademark.

  51. Margaret says:

    I am not a fan of Kate but I can understand, and I respect, her desire to keep her hair long because I am the same about my hair and I am older than she is. However, I do think it is time she wore it up or tied back more. I dislike the way she is constantly fiddling with it, that is not mature or professional. By all means wear it down when off-duty and for casual events, but constrain it for business events and any occasion that requires high heels and a hat. I think that at her age her hair should at least be tied back into a ponytail if she’s wearing a hat, to give the impression of more gravitas, because Kate is not a person who naturally possesses gravitas and she needs all the help she can get.

  53. Emily_C says:

    It’s not a woman’s duty to be aesthetically pleasing to others. So, whatever. Shave your head and paint it silver if you want.

    Of course, a big problem with Kate is that she has entirely imbibed the myth that her duty is to be aesthetically pleasing to others…

  54. aftershocks says:

    Interestingly, there has previously been discussion on CB in various Kate threads about the state of her hair. There were many suggestions that she get it cut, or at least get it trimmed and conditioned. The talk on CB of Kate needing to cut her hair was never centered around her age, to my recollection.

    In any case, the writer probably got the ‘Kate needing to cut her hair’ talking point from CB and then posed this question to Fraser in order to stir things up. 🤔

  55. Mel says:

    If you like your hair long, wear it like that.
    If you like it short, pink, blue, gray, blonde , whatever do it! It’s your hair everyone else gets to mind their business, drink their water and stop policing women regarding their appearance.

  56. HennyO says:

    Her longer hair for some years now, is the next thing to compete with and cosplay Meghan’s looks and style..

    I thing her hair is in a bad state because of excessive dying..At every appearance it has another colour.

  57. sammi says:

    Antonia Fraser,Husband and Caroline Kennedy were nearly blown up by the IRA in London when she had Caroline Kennedy with her for an event they were going too. The car exploded before they got in it.

    Look up Caroline Kennedy in Wikipedia for this story and seems something is going on with the Earthshot in Kennedy Library and Harvard which is trying to compete with the NY event with Meghan and Harry.

    As for her hair…who cares and who knows whose hair it is anyway!

  58. Thinking says:

    She still looks good with her long hair. Actually most women nowadays do. Maybe I’m missing something but most of the people who choose to keep their long hair generally have nice looking hair. Maybe hair care has come a long way.

    I always wondered why Diana had that short helmet head before she transitioned to a normal bob. I guess she was able to pull it off judging by how much prettier she looked compared to how bad the actresses playing her have had with the same hairstyle. Nonetheless, I wondered why her hairdresser suggested that fairly mature looking hairstyle to her. The bob looked better.

    Diana’s helmet head has never made a comeback.

    • Tessa says:

      Diana wore the hairstyle of the times. She looked great and her hair was more trendy in the nineties

        I don’t think the hairstyle looked great even for the time. When I look at old photos of other celebrities like Winona Ryder, who had a traditional bob, I know which hairstyle I’d rather choose.

        Halle Berry had short hair, but the way it was cut looks better than what Diana had. That said, Diana was able to pull of that hairstyle because maybe her features could carry it off. But I notice the actress who plays Diana in The Crown looks much better as herself than with that hairstyle.

        I think Diana looked like she was hitting her stride with her hairstyle when she got rid of the helmet head and got the bob.

    My mom is like that – so many times I’ve heard her say “she’s too old to wear her hair like that” or “at her age she should get that cut shorter”. She’s constantly worried about what her own hair looks like too, and I always tell her it’s fine, and that people should wear their hair however they want, and most people barely even notice others.

    Kate is whatever William wants her to be. She is his idea of the perfect wife, not too bright, doesn’t ask too many questions, speaks only when spoken to and does as she is told. He likes thin women with long hair? Got it. She will stay thin with long hair. Job security.

    Why is Fraser so concerned about Kate

    I’m so used to seeing other older celebrities like Julia Roberts and Courtney Cox, and pretty much everyone else too, continue to maintain their long hair. Therefore, Kate’s hair doesn’t seem like an anomaly to me. It just seems to fit in with current trends of everyone wanting and being able to have/maintain their long hair with good hair products and styling.

    I have very dry, possibly ugly hair so I’ve always had short hair since I was a kid. But whenever I see people with pretty long hair, I completely understand why they’d want to keep it. I know I would.

    Doesn’t Meghan have very long hair too?
