Queen Elizabeth is embracing summer with a new haircut.

The monarch hosted her second in-person meeting this week at Windsor Castle, and fans quickly noticed she was sporting a shorter hairdo.

Queen Elizabeth has been wearing her hair in a consistent style for decades. However, in photos from her meeting the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby on Tuesday and her audience with the Governor of New South Wales, Margaret Beazley, on Wednesday, the royal's hair looks to have been trimmed around the back and sides since her Platinum Jubilee weekend earlier this month.

Angela Kelly, a close aide to Queen Elizabeth, recently updated her bestselling book The Other Side Of The Coin: The Queen, the Dresser and the Wardrobe to include details about attending to the monarch during lockdown, per People.

Kelly wrote, "From March 2020 onwards, I washed the queen's hair every week, set and styled it, and even trimmed it when needed. My team named it Kelly's Salon."

The author added that when she started, the queen could tell she was nervous and was kind enough to advise her on "the very specific way to put the rollers in."
