Kim Sears at Wimbledon 2012 vs Kate Middleton at Wimbledon 2011
Don’t blame yourself for doing a double-take when a shot of Kim Sears, pops up on your telly screen during this year's Wimbledon fun. We, too, have momentarily thought that we're looking at our fave royal, the Duchess of Cambridge.
That's right folks, Kate Middleton has got some competition in the hair arena because there's a new immaculately-maned maven on the tennis scene and she's putting up a serious challenge in the match of the perfect 'dos. But you won’t find this lady taking her blow dry for a walk around the Ascot arena, royal gardens or Hyde Park. Andy Murray's girlfriend uses her luscious locks to support her man as she watches from her court-side seat.
Ok, it’s very doubtful Miss Sears shares the same stylist as our Duchess, so we're wondering if she popped down to her local blow dry bar and ask for a "Middleton"? With plenty of snaps of Kate around, perhaps she did the good old-fashioned thing and took in a magazine tear sheet or two? We wouldn't blame her.
Whether the secret’s in the number of hairspray coats or the soft bristles on their luxury hairbrushes, you have to admit the resemblance is uncanny, no? K-Middy, say hello to your lighter-haired tennis-loving twin! And without a DoC in sight, we'll be looking to Kim, with her buckets of extra bounce (excuse the pun), as this year's Wimbledon Queen. Will you be joining us?
