Hats And Royal Family III

Kate Middleton, officially called Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is a member of the British royal family. Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, is her husband who is expected to become king of the United Kingdom and of 15 other Commonwealth realms. They met in 2001, engaged in November 2010. They married on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey. They have three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis of Cambridge.

Catherine has a great impact on British and American fashion, which is called the “Kate Middleton effect” in the media. She has been placed on numerous “best dressed” lists.

Kate was named as one of Richard Blackwell’s ten “Fabulous Fashion Independents” of 2007. In June 2008, Style.com selected her as their monthly beauty icon. She was selected as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” by Time magazine both in 2012 and 2013. She was also the number one on Vanity Fair’s annual best dressed lists in 2012. In 2014, Kate was named to the International Best Dressed Hall of Fame List. In June 2016, she made her debut in the magazine shoot for Vogue’s centenary issue appearing on the cover of the magazine.

It goes without saying that if you are a member of the British royal family, the hats you’ve worn are important pieces that can make both fashion and political statements all at the same time.

On 1 July 2011, Kate Middleton wore a cream-ruffled Reiss dress during Canada Day celebrations. She looked so regal, elegant and gorgeous. She also wore a red Sylvia Fletcher fascinator with a red clutch. Kate dazzled with her fashion sense.

In June 2018, Kate will make public appearance and will wear a hat. Last year, the mum-of-three wore pink and in a sweet touch, Princess Charlotte complimented her mother in a pink floral dress. The year before, Catherine stunned in a cream ensemble. This year will be the first that Meghan Markle, the wife of Prince Harry, will stand on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

Kate has been choosing match the color of her hat to her outfit. She wears many new designers and has also worn dresses by Catherine Walker, who designed many evening gowns and day suits for Diana. You can learn from her and wear your own favorite hat. A beret is not bad.

She chose an oversized heart hat in the photo.

Kate was wearing a beret.

Diana, Princess of Wales, was also a member of the British royal family. She was the mother of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex. Her hats were cute and lovely and perfectly tailored dresses and statement-making coats were extremely exquisite.

She looked absolutely flawless in a white and cobalt pairing, paired with a turban-inspired hat, while touring Dubai in March 1989.

Diana strolled around Guildford Cathedral in a structured red coat and fierce fascinator during a December 1981 visit.

Hats And Royal Family II

Elizabeth II(Elizabeth Alexandra Mary), who is born on 21 April 1926, is Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. Elizabeth was born in London as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. She was educated privately at home and began to undertake public duties during the Second World War, serving in the Auxiliary Territorial Service.

In 1947, she married Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, a former prince of Greece and Denmark, with whom she has four children: Charles, Prince of Wales; Anne, Princess Royal; Prince Andrew, Duke of York; and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex. 

Elizabeth, only 13 years old, fell in love with her future husband, Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark, at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth in July 1939, and they began to exchange letters. Actually, Philip is the cousin of Elizabeth. However, Queen Elizabeth, Elizabeth’s mother, was firmly opposed to Elizabeth and Philip’s love, because Philip was not a real prince at all,  he was the descendant of Germany royal family. Regardless of the strong disagreement from Queen Elizabeth, they engaged when Elizabeth was 21 years old.

In November 2017, new portraits of Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip, were released to celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary. In the photos, Queen Elizabeth II wore the “Scarab” brooch in yellow gold, carved ruby and diamond that was given to her by Philip in 1966 and designed by Andrew Grima. Their love is so great.

We can say that Queen Elizabeth II is a trendsetter in Britain. She sticks to her fashion uniform of a coat dress accessorized with a hat, gloves and pearls and the queen always manages to keep her signature look fresh. She loves especially hats.

There is a photo of the queen at the age of two.

Designers who design hats for the British royal family include Rachel Trevor-Morgan(she designs many hats for Queen Elizabeth II), Philip Somerville, Philip Treacy, Frederick Fox, Gina Foster, Stephen Jones and so on. Since 2006, Her Majesty The Queen has worn Rachel’s hats on many high profile occasions: Royal Ascot, Her 80th birthday celebrations at St Paul’s, Her Diamond Wedding celebration at Westminster Abbey, meeting George Bush in Washington and so on. Rachel also designs hats for other members of the Royal family, such as Kate Middleton.

In 1982, the Queen wore an ostrich feather hat; the Queen wore a pink top hat. In 1992, the Queen wore a Pillbox Hat, which looked formal paired with suit. The hat became popular because of Jacqueline Lee Kennedy Onassis, the wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and the First Lady of the United States from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. 

The Elizabeth II is also a faithful fan of flower. Her hat is full of floral decorations.

The Queen also loves bowknots. We can see the decoration on her hats.

You must be amazed at the lady’s hats. If you want to be a little different, a hat may a good accessory. I recommend the beret hat, simple but fashionable.

Hats And Royal Family I

In Europe and the United States, the tradition is still preserved that women have to wear a hat when they go to church. In Britain, the tradition has become a symbol of the country. The women in royal family insist on following this tradition, and their hats are also eye-catching and fabulous.

Why do British royals love hats so much?

Status Symbol

In Britain, hats are not only fashion accessories but also a symbol of identity, status, power and etiquette. In the United Kingdom in the last century, it was a must for women to wear hats, especially for a woman with high status. Not wearing a hat in public was considered impolite and inappropriate.

Hat is a language.

“Hat in hand or Take one’s hat off to (someone)” in English are the expressions of respect and admiration, which is related to hats. Men in Britain, who meet acquaintances on street, are required to take off their hats to show respect for others. Hats have been integrated in British culture and language and have been a symbol of respect.

A hat is used to hide hair.

In the United Kingdom in the 1950s, ladies were generally not allowed to show their hair on public occasions. They had to put their hair up and wear a hat. Therefore, the custom of wearing a hat in a grand and special occasion is passed to the current generation of British royal family today.

Because of the weather

The climate of England can be described as temperate maritime climate, because the Gulf Stream ensures mild, maritime influenced weather. England is well-known for its rain and the lush green of its countryside. Temperate winters and cool summers are typical, and extreme seasonal variations are rare. It may be sunny in the morning but it will become rainy at noon. Therefore, a beautiful and practical hat is so necessary for the British. Besides, it is well-known that the English go out with an umbrella or a raincoat.

An attitude towards fashion

There are a wide variety of top hats, so knowing how to pick and wear will definitely express your personal taste.

No hats worn indoors after 6pm.

According to the British tradition, ladies are not allowed to wear hats indoors after 6pm. If they have to attend indoor grand or formal activities, they must wear other headwear with cymatium or something else instead of a hat.

Affected by holidays

Different occasions need different hats with different colors and styles. In funerals, for example, people must wear black hats with simple designs paired with black cloth. On the Remembrance Day, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, and the royal family members wore dark cloth and dark hats to mourn for the soldiers who died in the war.

The most beautiful, bold, and bonkers royal hats symbolize the royals’ status and attitude. You can also choose a hat to become fashionable. Hats are a great accessory for girls or boys. Only wearing a hat can make you absolutely different. You are able to choose a beret at berethat.co.uk. Wear a hat that is suitable for you and become stylish.
