Tomorrow’s Trooping the Colour will be a scaled-back event at Windsor Castle with just the Queen in attendance. As we remember the pomp and pageantry of Trooping The Colours past (and future!), here’s a look back at all the hats we’ve seen the Duchess of Cambridge wear to this event:

Pale yellow Philip Treacy waved disc with silk flowers and twists in 2019
While it’s not the most vibrant group of hats we’ve seen (especially after this week’s discussion question!), I’m impressively surprised by the diverse variety of shapes. I think there’s a misconception floating around that Kate mostly wears smaller percher designs, something we see here is not the case.
What do you notice about this group of the Duchess’ hats?
