The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly donated her hair to a charity that makes real hair wigs for children fighting cancer.
She donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust after a recent cut.
Like Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program and Locks of Love, the Little Princess Trust helps create wigs for children suffering from hair loss due to chemotherapy treatments or other illnesses. They provide hair for those up to 24 years of age.
Kate decided to donate her hair during a trip to the hairdressers a few months ago, the Sunday Express reported.
The Little Princess Trust website released a statement thanking her.
“We are so very grateful to every single person who kindly supports the charity in this way. As the Duchess of Cambridge is so much in the public eye, we hope the message that the charity can help children and young people with hair loss will reach everyone who might need our assistance,” said Monica Glass, the Charity Manager of the organization. “Receiving a free, real hair wig has a very positive impact on a child or young adult at such a difficult time. We hope that this donation will encourage others to consider supporting the charity in the same way.”
The Sunday Express reported that Middleton made the donation in private, using a name that’s not her own. They also said that in total, Middleton donated seven inches of hair.
Donating hair to these kinds of organizations is an incredible gesture that directly impacts someone’s life for the better.
