With news today that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting her second child, I thought we might draw hats from her wedding for the this month’s first poll. When Catherine married Prince William on April 29, 2011, Princess Mathilde (as she was at the time) and Lady Frederick Windsor both chose Philip Treacy picture hats trimmed with with Treacy’s signature large multi-looped bow. What it is interesting about these hats is that they are moulded from a single piece of straw- if you look closely, there are no seams attaching the crown of the hat to the brim. While the colours are different and the brim on Lady Frederick’s hat is and oval shape, the two hats are decidedly related. That leaves me to ask, dear readers, who wore it best?
