Kate Middleton is a woman on many talents!

Like the rest of us, the royal family hasn't had access to a professional hairdresser in months - so apparently, the Duchess of Cambridge has taken matters into her own hands.

The royal mum - who is currently self-isolating at her Anmer Hall home in Norfolk with a "scaled-back household staff" - has been giving her children, Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, five, and two-year-old Prince Louis, DIY at-home haircuts.

In fact, Kate has apparently been super good at cutting hair this whole time thanks to her own mum, Carole Middleton.

A source told Fabulous: "Kate would certainly trim George and Charlotte's hair as she is very competent and they are used to home haircuts.

"Carole Middleton taught both Kate and sister Pippa how to cook and cut children's hair. To them, it is no big deal.

"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," the source added.

Typically the children have their hair cut at their Kensington Palace home by Kate's regular stylist Richard Ward, so are used to a home trim.

The source continued: "Kate is able to trim all the children's hair because she has this professional kit at home, including scissors, from Richard."

As for the Duchess' hair, the insider revealed that Kate has been enlisting her nanny Maria Borrallo's help to do her own hair during lockdown.

They explained: "It has only had a little trim so far."
