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!
