Seven inches of the duchess' royal locks were donated to the Little Princess Trust, a United Kingdom charity that provides wigs to children who have lost their hair due to cancer or other illnesses.

Hairdresser Joey, who works for Richard Ward Hair in Chelsea, was cutting the royal mother-of-two's hair, when she chose to donate the clippings, The Independent reports. "It's important because she's always on duty".

According to the British newspaper Sunday Express, the idea came to Kate - who is now pregnant with her third child - after her hairstylist, Joey Wheeler, suggested that she shorten her style. "She mentioned it to Joey, who thought it was a brilliant idea".

"It's a complete surprise", Helen Creese said.

Monica Glass, Charity Manager said, 'We are so very grateful to every single person who kindly supports the charity in this way.

Creese said that had they had known it was from the pregnant mother of two, the charity would have sent her certificate to thank her for her support, adding: "It's such a selfless act anyway to donate your hair to help a sick child or young adult".

ET reached out to Kensington Palace regarding this report but they had no comment.

This is certainly true, which is why it's not hard to believe that the duchess would donate her hair for a good cause.

The idea is said to have come to the 36-year-old royal as her stylist Joey chopped her mop.

In addition to Kate's donation, another British celebrity has given his hair to Little Princess Trust.

This will not have been the first time the charity received a high-profile donation, as it received the locks of One Direction star Harry Styles in May 2016.
