Duchess of Cambridge’s Easter Hats

I’m always intrigued by what hats a particular royal wears to the same event, year after year. Today, we’re going to look at the hats worn by the Duchess of Cambridge on Easter Sundays in the past:

It’s a pretty sedate bunch (beautiful details aside) that doesn’t really say ‘spring’!. I understand why Kate leaves the bright colours on this day to the Queen but I’d love to see her in an Easter look that wasn’t so neutral. Maybe next year she’ll bring some colour into her Easter look?!

  1. Thanks for this retrospective HQ. I, like everyone else, am surprised at it’s lack of color and so few appearances!

    I think of Easter in pinks and yellows and blues, so everyone’s choices of hopeful future repeats are great. I’d like to add this gem that (I think) has yet to be repeated. From a garden party in 2012:

    • Just realized that this dress is the same as the blue posted by Maja! This hat would be another great repeat — a change of pace from all the perchers.

  2. Duchess of Cambridge has class & style. She chooses clothes that are stylish’, classy, & compliments her husband’s stature & position

  3. All nice hats, but none of them are to my taste. I especially dislike the brown one.
    I would love it if she brought back these for Easter in the future:

    Unfortunately, no Easter hats this year. The Queen might do a TV address, but she never wears a hat for those.

  4. What I like about Catherine’s hats are that most of them are smaller rather than big brimmed hats. She has worn big hats before and she looks lovely wearing them. My preference is for these and I love her perchers and pill boxes.

  5. I thought — perhaps wrongly — that a “Pork Pie” hat was more like a Trilby. I must research .

  6. personally,the grey percher/pale grey outfit is probably one of my favourite looks on kate – understated, cool and sophisticated, although i do appreciate she looks fantastic in colour too.

    maybe this seasonal yellow coat could make a comeback – perhaps with a jolly yellow or contrasting pink hat for this easter (although on second thoughts ive just realised that i think we may all have to resign ourselves to the fact that there might probably be no royals at easter services this year, as they will most likely be at home self-isolating like the rest of us! perhaps we just have to design our own new favourite virtual outfits…. )????

    not sure that weve ever seen kate in a yellow hat? except the lemon/banana trooping the colour 2019 outfit?

    • It’s true that grey makes an elegant ensemble, but I think color would be in order. Maybe this soft blue instead: Embed from Getty Images

      And that pink with the folded ribbon effect is one of my all-time favorites of hers. It would be a perfect Easter bonnet.

      • I agree mittenmary, it would be perfect to see Kate repeat that bright pink cocktail hat for Easter! The detailing is exquisite, it frames her face so well, and of course the color is magnificent!

        Definitely was not aware how dull color-wise Kate’s Easter ensembles have been (or how few appearances she’s actually made). And it’s unfortunate we’ll have to wait another year to see if she’s changes things up!

  7. Yeah these are all elegant… but all a bit dull. The square one was also a strange look, it has gaps at the side because of the shape. You’re right, a smidge if colour would be nice wouldn’t it.
