Cambridges Celebrate Easter

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended Easter Sunday Service at St Andrew’s Cathedral in Sydney, Australia this morning. As expected, Kate wore a hat for the service- a grey percher hat trimmed with a large multi-looped organdie bow (hand dyed, I suspect). I loved how the fussy hat contrasted with the very clean lines of Kate’s coat and I thought her hairstyle showed off the hat to excellent effect. It’s a great hat for Kate, isn’t it?

  1. Every inch the young, elegant Duchess – coat, hat, hair, accessories and accompanying Duke all splendid! Happy Easter to all.

  2. Stunning for me! I love the simple clean lines of the coat and the back of her hair and hat is gorgeous! Thank you Hat Queen!

  3. When I first saw long-distance shot of this outfit, I found it impressive: as you said, it’s a fussy hat of top of clean lines, striking.
    While I still like the hat, especially the bow, I’m surprised how unpressed and pulled the coat looks up close. It doesn’t hang well, and that detracts from its clean lines. And I certainly don’t understand the beige purse and shoes (in other photos). Any shade of gray would have been preferable.
    I trust that this hat will be worn again with a better coat, particularly in fall or winter.

  4. I’m not so sure how I feel about this outfit. Yes, it’s elegant but somehow it looks like she went shopping in her mother’s closet. I love the hat but shouldn’t it be worn a bit further back on her head? The hair is perfection!

  5. A really excellent hat on Kate, with the outfit and for the occasion. I like her hair with it too; to me, long hair with a hat, even if partly held back, can often look rather juvenile, but I thought this came across as a proper grown-up look, very elegant.
