Queen Letizia is not the first royal to show her gray roots. In 2018, a stray gray hair on Meghan Markle’s head went viral as the 36-year-old prepared to marry Prince Harry.

Most people had a “so what?” reaction and that seems to be the attitude with more and more women realizing that gray hair can be beautiful.

We’ve seen plenty of celebrities publicly embrace their natural roots over the past year, including Andie MacDowell, who called herself a “silver fox” during a February appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show.”

The 63-year-old actor said his daughters inspired her to give up the dye when they said her roots “looked mean”.

“So I went there and I love it,” she said.

The star also said that she liked to think of the color as sexy silver instead of gray.

“It’s not that I let myself go. I don’t think of it that way,” she said.

In February, “Mom” star Allison Janney described her new gray locks as her “most authentic” look yet during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

“I was in Ohio for most of 2020,” she said. “I started… a few inches of healthy gray roots came in and I just decided I wanted to break free from the dye and hair extensions.”

In April 2020, Tia and Tamera Mowry both showed touches of gray in their midlife makeup-free selfies. Tia even revealed that she sees aging as a “blessing.”

“Gray hair is signs of wisdom,” she wrote in her article. “Wrinkles are signs that you laughed.”

Guys have embraced the trend over the past year as well, including Johnny Knoxville and Kevin Hart, who have said he’s taking a break from work to give his hair coloring routine a little rest.

“Gray hair in your beard?” Gray hair at the top, on the sides? … By giving you a “distinguished gentleman” here, man. Kiss him, don’t run away from him! “He said on Instagram in March 2020.
