Royal Ascot: Day One Hats

Day One at Royal Ascot was full of white/cream coloured hats gracing royal heads.

Duchess of Cambridge

My favourite of the day is worn by the Duchess of Cambridge. It is remarkably similar to what she wore head to toe last year. The Telegraph noticed that too.

Designer: Unknown. Dress by Alexander McQueen.

Duchess of Cornwall

The Duchess of Cornwall (fka Camilla Parker-Bowles) wore one of her larger than life hats.

This is a new hat. Designer: Philip Treacy.

Next up, some honourable mentions.

I always seem to love the hats worn by Zara Philips Tindall (daughter of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Philips) and the Countess of Wessex (Prince Edward’s wife).

Countess of Wessex

Here is Sophie Wessex arriving at the Royal meeting with her husband and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The hat is embellished with straw curls.

This a new hat. Designer: Jane Taylor. Dress by Emilia Wickstead.

Zara Tindall

Here’s my girl. She never disappoints. Love the playfulness of this hat worn by Zara. Described by the designer as a “white sloped beret in visca straw trimmed with an upturned bow in three tones of blue.”

Designer: Sarah Cant.
