And her trendy new look appears to be eerily similar to the one debuted by Michelle Keegan earlier this week.
Similar to Kate, the Our Girl star, 33, now has brunette lengths, with some face-framing blonde highlights.
The actress’ hair colourist, Calum Tierney, shared a video of Michelle’s beautiful new colour, and described the look as “hair contouring” and appears to use a similar technique used on Kate’s.
L’Oreal Professional say the process is similar to the idea of make-up contouring.

They described the hair version as one that “uses a combination of free hand application and highlighting, paired with the careful positioning of different tones and depths around the face to highlight and shadow targeted areas.”
Darker shades are used to create shadows, and this can help to narrow a face shape.
Meanwhile, lighter tones have the opposite effect and can lengthen or elongate the face by reflecting light.
Kate showed off her new do as she praised a nurse who took an “iconic portrait” of a colleague for the Hold Still photography project.

The royal mum told Johannah Churchill, whose picture of Melanie Senior has been recreated as a powerful mural in Manchester, the image was “hugely moving”.
Images of sleeping nurses, shielding elderly and chaotic family scenes showing the reality of working from home were some of the images submitted to Kate’s Hold Still initiative, with 100 pictures going on display across the country.
Making a videocall as the UK-wide exhibitions drew to a close, the duchess told the nurse: “I think it’s become such an iconic portrait that represents a lot of what frontline workers have experienced and what those of you across the UK have put your lives on the line in looking after us all this year.

“I think it certainly touched us in terms of the judging panel, we felt it was a hugely moving image and I think it has, like you say, it has really resonated with lots of the public too, so well done.”
The duchess launched the photography competition in May in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, of which she is patron.
More than 31,000 people submitted entries to the project, which aimed to document the nation’s experiences of lockdown.
