She hit headlines back in September when she unveiled her side-swept fringe for the first time, and now the Duchess of Cambridge has done it again!

The royal debuted a shorter ‘do at a London charity event on Wednesday, where she and her husband Prince William manned the phones at brokerage firm ICAP as part of their annual ICAP Charity Day.

Teaming her short and sleek hairstyle with a teal skirt suit from one of her favourite designers, LK Bennett, Kate looked to be having plenty of fun at the fundraising event.

ICAP Charity Day sees the company donate one day’s worth of revenue and commissions to selected charitable organisations, with various celebrities getting involved to help with the fundraising efforts. This year, Kate was there to represent her chosen charities Place2Be and SportsAid, while William took part on behalf of his charity SkillForce.

The duo took a tour of the trading room floor, where they met ICAP staff dressed in a range of wild and wacky outfits as part of the day’s festivities, before picking up the phones to help ‘close’ a few deals with ICAP clients.

William was in his element on the phones and threw himself into the negotiations with gusto, while Kate took a more measured approach, trading Christmas greetings and other pleasantries with the client on the other end of the line.
