Duchess of Cambridge under fire for grey hair

Do you think the criticism of Kate's is too harsh?

She keeps a busy schedule looking after a four-month-old, as well as keeping up her royal duties, but new mum Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has been the subject of criticism for showing grey hairs.

Kate (31) took a surprise trip down to High Street Kensington in London today, where she greeted volunteer flower vendors for Poppy Day.

Catherine and Prince William met members of the Poppy Girls, daughters of military personnel who are releasing a song for charity to raise funds for the Royal British Legion, and rode the bus to the events.

But despite the new mum’s efforts to promote the good cause, style critics focused on Kate's flat hairdo and the few silver strands around Kate’s parting.

“If you are going grey, it is important to part your hair where the grey does not show,” wrote hairdresser Daniel Galvin Jr in an article on the Daily Mail, which has sparked many negative comments from readers.

Kate, who is breastfeeding Prince George, may be avoiding using harsh chemical hair products to prevent any transference through breast milk.
