A fourth garden party took place at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Beatrice, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester braving rain to be in attendance.
The Duchess of Cambridge used the occasion to debut a new hat. The mint sinamay double disc design features a high sidesweep pinch in which is nestled oversize mint silk handmade flowers. There’s a delicacy and lightness to the piece that feels so fresh, despite us knowing that Kate has twins of this style in different colours!
Designer: Philip Treacy OC 896 from SS 2022
Previously Worn: This hat is new
The Duke of Cambridge repeated his antique silk top hat.
Princess Beatrice wore a halo bandeau headpiece in a natural and black geometric woven print. The graphic pattern gives a great sharpness to the piece.
Designer: Dandelion design by Camilla Rose. Dress by Self Portrait.
Previously Worn: This headpiece is new
The Countess of Wessex repeated the electric blue straw ringed saucer percher trimmed with stiffened lace and curled quills we last saw her wear at Easter. The Earl repeated his antique silk top hat.
The Duchess of Gloucester is wearing a wide brimmed black hat. It looks like a darker twin to the blue lightweight sinamay hat she wore in March.
Don’t you wish these garden parties would continue all summer?!
