Little Princess Trust

Little Princess Trust is a charity organization based in the Herefordshire, UK. They make high-quality wigs using real hair and give them for free to children who lost their hair as a result of cancer treatment or any other illness.

The foundation was organized by Simon and Wendy Tarplee as a memory of their daughter Hannah who died from cancer when she was 5 years old. The headmaster, Tim Lowe, has also become a part of it.

Kate’s Locks

Kate Middleton decided to donate seven inches of her hair when she was having it cut by a hairdresser at Kensington Palace.

The Duchess of Cambridge wanted to do something good with it, instead of throwing the unwanted locks away.

The hair was sent under someone else’s name so that nobody would know that it was from a royal source.

Kate Middleton is not the first famous person who donated her hair to charity.
