Royal Wedding: Oh Those Crazy Hats!
Victoria Beckham, Joss Stone, Queen Elizabeth II wore incredible hats. Some hats were stunning, some hats looked like aliens!
Watching the royal wedding this morning, the hats of some of the guests almost rivaled Kate’s gown. Feathered hats, huge rectangular hats, and yes, scary hats were perched on heads. Celebrities like Joss Stone and Victoria Beckham wore relatively conservative hats compared to some of the royals.
50 of these wild and some wacky hats were created by Vivien Sheriff and her team of 8 milliners, according to the BBC. Vivien said, “I’m just really sworn to secrecy and I don’t talk about who’s been here, but I can tell you that we’ve made lots of pieces for various members of the Royal Family and some of the Middletons,” she said.
She also told the BBC, “It’s definitely 50 pieces that we know about [for the wedding], but of course lots of our pieces go into the shops and big stores, so and we don’t know who’s going to wear them, so there’s that element of surprise on the day.”
Sheriff is based in Wiltshire and her hats were worn by members of the Royal Family, the Middleton family and some of the couple’s guests.
Here’s a look at what the guests wore.
Zara Phillips, one of Prince William’s relatives, is rumored to be the next member of her family to get married. Her hat looks like a flying saucer. Guess if she gets bored during the ceremony, she can fly away.
Queen Elizabeth II
Prince William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, wore a sunshine yellow outfit. Her topper was designed by her personal assistant, Angela Kelly. Joyce Behar of The View, said the the Queen, “looked like a drunk bumblebee.”
Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice
Royal cousins, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice wore gravity defying hats. They won’t get lost in a crowd.
Singer Joss Stone wore a lovely floral bedecked picture hat. This is a very toned down look for the haute hippy singer.
