Four years ago today, Kate Middleton (as her name was then) attended the wedding of Nicholas Van Cutsem and Alice Hadden-Paton at the Guard’s Chapel in London. She wore this pale blue Jane Corbett designed percher hat with a back pleat and bow, trimmed with silk flowers and black curly cues. This is one of my least favourite of Kate’s hats- I think it looks like a flowered satellite dish stuck on her forehead (complete with radio antenna) and the mix of bow, blooms, curly cues, and dramatic shape are too much for one small hat. Kate has not repeated this hat and I have a hunch it did not make the grade for her royal life. What do you think of this pale blue percher hat?
