First of all, in case you missed it, we had some royals coverage over the weekend you might be interested in eyeballing. First, Saturday was Trooping The Colour, which brought us both Charlotte and George, and Sunday was the Patron’s Lunch for QE2, which brought us The Trio riding around in an open-topped Range Rover and the Queen getting photobombed by an enterprising bird. Today is the British Royal Family’s day to dress up in foofy costumes and test the depth of their beloved’s passion because, as I say every year, if you can look at bae in a giant velvet hat with feathers and still think he’s dreamy, you really think he’s dreamy.
PS: If you think Kate’s red Catherine Walker ensemble looks familiar, it’s because she wore it when they visited Canada in 2011. Her hat — which I misidentified as new, originally (sorry) is also a recycle: She wore it with her red McQueen at the Queen’s jubilee in 2011 (a red ensemble that I prefer to this one, overall, actually.)
