The Duchess of Cambridge atttended her friend Sophie Carter’s wedding last weekend in a cornflower blue silk flower and crin bandeau headpiece from Juliette Botterill. It’s such a pretty colour but the combination of this design with the matching dress and coat reads too twee for my liking.

The leaves are beautifully constructed and their placement is absolutely perfect on this hat (check out her (also check out her exquisite picture hats). Wies- your stunning designs deserve to be worn on royal heads!
