Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, Dazzles at Royal Pageant, But Failed to Impress with Fashion Faux Pas Hat [PHOTOS]
It was another weekend to dazzle for Kate Middleton as she joins the royal family for another weekend Royal Pageant. The Duchess of Cambridge dazzled in a silver-grey Erdem dress but almost likely created a fashion faux pas with her hat.
Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton looked radiant at the Trooping the Color parade this weekend. She arrived in a horse-drawn carriage together with Prince Harry and the Duchess of Cornwall. Kate donned a dress from one of her favorite fashion house Erdem and an eye-catching Jane Corbett hat to match.
Just last month, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a pink hat by Jane Corbett in another Jubilee celebration. Kate smiled and waved at the thousands of crowds, while also catching a glace at the Duke of Cambridge who was riding his horse as Colonel of the Irish Guards.
Although Kate Middleton managed to dazzle in her embroidered sliver-grey dress, not much can be said about her choice of hat this time. Perhaps following a series of fabulous hats which she wore on previous events at the Jubilee Diamond celebration, her recent head piece came off more as a distraction rather than a fashion accessory.
The ceremony was in celebration of the Queen's birthday. Although her actual birthday is on April, her official birthday is always marked in June. The royal family gathered at the balcony of the Buckingham palace to watch the traditional RAF flypast.
The Queen was wearing a yellow coat, a dress by designer Angela Kelly, also matched with a hat. Thousands gather around the Buckingham palace to celebrate the Queen's official birthday.
