Style Showdown: Princess Beatrice vs. Kate Middleton’s Fascinators
This past April, Princess Beatrice made headlines with the outrageous headgear she wore to Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s wedding. The 22-year-old daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, auctioned off the hat for charity and sold it for $130,000.
Most recently, Kate stepped out with a similar pretzel-esque hat that was toned down — as royal officials announced the couple is moving into Princess Diana‘s former home.
The newlyweds showed up to the Epsom Derby alongside husband William and brother-in-law Prince Harry , with Kate wearing a tiny tan fascinator with a swirly bow on top. Will and Harry also had some interesting headgear, both stepping out in top hats.
“The couple’s official London residence will temporarily become a property at Kensington Palace. The couple’s main home will continue to be their house on Anglesey, and their Household Office will continue to be based at St James’s Palace.”
