The 11 Responses To The Daily Mail's Front Page About Kate Middleton's Grey Hairs

All I keep hearing in my head is this.

Posted on

So today's Daily Mail has a VERY IMPORTANT STORY about Kate Middleton, aka Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, and Lady Carrickfergus.

"When I grow up I want to be a journalist so I can expose the horror of a woman needing to have her roots done"

The paper reported:

Touring the West Midlands with her hair in an elegant half-up hairstyle, a glimpse of grey could be seen peeping from beneath the knot holding it in place.

Of course, this is not the first time the 33-year-old royal has been snapped showing off a silver streak, with the most recent sighting coming early in January during a shopping trip.

So this is big. And the people of Britain know it's big. Here's how they have responded so far this morning.

1. With shock, horror, and quiet resignation.

With her greying roots Kate Middleton has let herself down and more importantly Britain down. I think a quiet divorce is her only option now

2. With sadness.

Woke up full of zest but have just seen Kate Middleton has let herself go with her grey hairs. Now, my good spirits have withered and died.

3. By making enticing offers to cheer her up.

Grey hairs or not, I'd still take Kate Middleton for a slap-up meal at my local Brewers Fayre. A la carte too, no messing.

5. By claiming she's copied their style.

how low will Kate Middleton go? Copying me by getting preggers just before me and now the grey hair. It's getting a little embarrassing

6. By pointing out that – like everyone else – the Daily Mail isn't angry with Kate for letting us down.

"Oh Kate." The Daily Mail is not angry, just disappointed...
