People Are Divided In Opinion Over Kate Middleton's Choice Of Hat For Prince Louis' Christening

Date July 10, 2018

It’s a common notion that if you are one of the royal family members, your hat choices need to be spot on. From Princess Diana’s elegant headpieces to the Queen’s famous bright fascinators, hats are an important part of the royal ladies’ wardrobe.

The Duchess of Cambridge knows how to make a statement with her headpieces as she mastered the hat game quite well. For her third child’s christening, she chose a very unique headwear, which bemused many social media users. People have gotten into a fiery debate as to what the creation exactly is - a hat, headpiece, headband, fascinator or bandeau.

Thought-provoking headpiece

Duchess Kate arrived at St. James's Palace's Chapel Royal wearing a beautiful cream dress by her go-to designer Alexander McQueen. The proud mom was carrying a sleeping Prince Louis, her third and youngest child with the Duke of Cambridge.


Kate looked absolutely stunning and very chic in her ensemble, which she paired with a Jane Taylor hat and, reportedly, Jimmy Choo heels.

This is not the first time the Duchess wears Alexander McQueen’s creation as she chose the designer’s dresses for the christenings of her two other children. She is also known to wear the same outfit a couple of times. For Princess Charlotte's christening in 2015, Kate sported a white coat dress and it is believed she wore it again for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding in May.


This might mean we can see the Duchess in the beautiful piece she chose for this christening once more.
