The Times apologises to the Duchess of Cambridge’s hairdresser


The Times has issued an apology to the Duchess of Cambridge’s hairdresser after publishing an incorrect article in March.

Richard Ward, who styled the Duchess of Cambridge’s hair on her wedding day, was accused of breaching Catherine’s confidence in a recent Relative Values magazine feature in the newspaper.

The Times has since published a correction, saying that in actual fact, Mr Ward “did not breach confidentiality.”

In full, the correction read: “In our Relative Values feature (Magazine, March 3), we said that the royal and celebrity hairdresser Richard Ward had ‘got into trouble’ by revealing how he had styled Kate Middleton’s hair for her wedding and mistakenly suggested he had breached royal confidences.

“We now appreciate that he did not breach confidentiality and we apologise to Mr Ward for this error.”
