Royal Wedding Princess Beatrice Hat

Royal Wedding Hat

Princess Beatrice Royal Wedding Hat:

There was a Royal Wedding recently in London :) – Prince William married Kate Middleton in a stunning ceremony in Westminster Abbey.  It was a fantastic day – and part of the enjoyment was watching the beautiful wedding outfits worn by the many guests, family and friends, who were invited to share this special day.  One of the most talked-about hats was worn by Princess Beatrice;  the hat, designed by Philip Treacy, is described as

 

A unique sculptural celebratory headpiece in delicate tea rose silk, designed by one of the UK’s most creative and influential milliners Philip Treacy.  A truly individual, fun but elegant wedding bow becomes the fascinator form.

This statement piece is worn on the front hairline secured by a clear wire headband that is easily disguised by the wearer’s hair.  This is a gravity defying hat.

 

What I like about this auction is that the hat is being auctioned for charity (you have to be pre-approved in order to bid) – and that the Princess, who has obviously approved the content, has been game enough to sanction the inclusion of the photoshopped images in the auction listing.  Good on her!

PS – the hat made over £80,000 for charity – wow – what a finale to this story.
