Yesterday, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York attended the high society wedding of Lady Melissa Percy, daughter of the Duke of Northumberland and Thomas van Straubenzee (one of Prince Harry and Prince William’s best friends). Princess Beatrice repeated a small black straw button beret trimmed with large loops, an arrow feather and a huge white silk rose (she previously wore this hat on Christmas Day 2010).
Princess Eugenie repeated a greige straw beret with flat top trimmed with a folded flying straw knot (she wore it to Peter Phillips’ wedding in 2008).
Both of these Philip Treacy designed hats were all right on their own but I found them completely disconnected with outfits they were paired with. After the beautiful hats these two have worn over the past two weeks, I found this throwback to their previous more zany hat style a little disappointing. What do you think of these two signature hats?
