But the beautifully-styled bun held a little secret — a hairnet! That’s right, the royal trendsetter kept her updo in place with the classic reinforcing hair accessory. But this isn’t your lunch lady’s hairnet. The royal’s discreet accessory, which comes in a variety of colors, is much thinner and almost impossible to detect. And at under $2, this is one affordable beauty hack.

This isn’t the first time Kate has been spotted wearing one. She kept her braided chignon in place with a hairnet at the Somme Centenary Commemorations in France in July.

Kate kept the hair surprises coming when she arrived in Manchester on Friday wearing a tucked ponytail, begging the question: Does Princess Kate own a Topsy Tail?

Kate rocked the hairstyle, which was made popular in the ‘90s thanks to the easy-to-use tool that transformed the average ponytail into an instant updo!

And we can’t forget Kate’s ultimate go-to retro hair accessory — the headband! The royal is singlehandedly flipping the script on what’s hot in hairstyles.
