The Duchess of Kent was synonymous with Wimbledon for years, handing out prizes at the event from 1969 until 2001. Looking through the many photos of her with the winners provides a panoramic view of her various hairstyles. I was once a young person with limited knowledge of royals and a passion for tennis, and I remember the blonde lady and my fascination with her changing coiffure fondly.

2001, her last year, with a very young Venus Williams
Bows, bouffants, braids, there are many more facets of the Duchess’ hairstyles not pictured here. Please post your own favorites below and give this warm and caring woman some love.
