Royal Crazy Hat Day

Were you watching? I totally was. (Not at 6 am mind you...I heart DVR.)
I mean, seriously I almost died. How adorable..right?

I nearly wet myself when Prince Harry turned to Prince William and said "Wait, till you see her!"

Then...when they saw each other, Prince William says, "You look fabulous. Beautiful."
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...I melt.

It was a gorgeous day, and why wouldn't it was a stinkin Royal Wedding afterall. However, I must say...some of the best moments...were the hats.

Did you know that, as an attendee and a woman, you were requested to wear a hat?
Check it.
First we have Camilla and the Queen. Not too bad...understated and traditional...especially on the part of the Queen.

And Mum of the Bride...Carole Middleton. Very elegant, just like her daughter.

Princess Anne...snore; I mean it doesn't seem that she would take many bold fashion risks anyhow! :)

Then we have Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice of York (Fergie's daughters)

What the??

(Obviously Beatrice is known for her crazy hat choices...check out this old picture...woah now. overkill.)

Anywho, back to the wedding...Here's Miriam Gonzalez Durantez, the wife of Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. Kinda neat.

Lady Frederick Windsor. Love it.

Zara Phillip....woah a little like a giant spider was exploding out from under it.

Tara Palmer-Tomkinson. Channeling GaGa...uh woah.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex. Pretty traditional. I likey.

 Princess Michael of Kent. Kinda Derby-ish.

 All it all, it was interesting to see all the hats! I never realized the UK was such a HAT place?! What did you think of the wedding? The hats?

Aww hat fashion. Totally don't think Princess Ann ever took fashion risks. You have quite a collection here. The bow hat was such a mistake. Totally makes her look like a loon, or a goat with antlers. Harsh but if you are willing to wear a hat like that you've got to expect it's not going to be everybody's fave. Crazy hat's alright. If they were smart they's try to resell them on Ebay LOL. Now what. Totally would be, "oh didn't you wear that hat for the royal wedding..." Now I'm sure they will send an eternity in a hat box.
Cheers to the royal couple.

I happened upon your site and instantly put on the breaks! I love the pix, of course, of the hats! And yes, I watched, thanks to DVR I too was a watcher and cry baby while I was at it. My God, that was the most beautiful wedding I have ever seen. And didn't you feel as though you were there? I sure did. I really enjoyed it. The hats, I must say, knocked me out! Loved em, all except Fergie's a word, weird! Hahahaa!

Anyway, loved the pics you posted. Please drop by my place to read some of my New Prairie Woman novel, comment and follow if you can! Nice meeting you.
