Kate inspires Princess Sofia's new lob hairstyle

Princess Sofia of Sweden seems to have had another royal beauty on her mind when selecting her new hairstyle: the Duchess of Cambridge. The pregnant 31-year-old chopped off her usually long brown locks for a chic shoulder-length lob, much like the one Kate currently favours.

The stylish royal went the extra style mile for the festive event, opting for a chic lace short-sleeved blue gown paired with black tights and stilettos.

Royal enthusiasts quickly noted the striking resemblance between Sofia's new look and Kate's most recent hairstyle. Just a few weeks ago the Duchess revealed she had decided to go for a shorter length than her usually tumbling locks, opting for a blunt, layered style falling just below her shoulders – much like Sofia's new hairstyle.

Kate recently opted to have her hair cut into a shoulder-length style.

Kate first unveiled her new look when she joined Prince William at the ICAP charity day, where the couple met brokers and charity representatives before having a go at closing a few deals themselves in a bid to raise money for charity.

It's not the first time the mother-of-two has turned heads this year with a stunning new hairstyle – earlier this year she stepped out with a new fringe. However, it seems Kate has already begun to grow it out, often styling it to the side.

According to The Sun, Kate is said to have told friends she was "unsure" about the look. "I was a bit unsure about it," she reportedly admitted. "I call it my 'mum fringe'."

However, there's no doubt that the stylish royal has continued to up the beauty stakes this yearwith her gorgeous make-up and flawless hairstyles, repeatedly causing fans around the world to try and recreate her dazzling looks.
