Screw the crown get me a hat!

This week it seems that all millinery (and tabloid) eyes have fallen on the head of future Queenie to be, Kate Middleton whom it seems is trying to start her own wee hat revolution. She was this week sporting a Vivien Sheriff hattie made from brown velvet trimmed with pheasant feathers (my favorite) topped off with two buttons, one from the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, of which Prince Charles is colonel-in-chief, and the other from the Staffordshire Regiment. Throw in a tiny wee cameo brooch and you are on to a winner. Well unless you listen to the 3am girls who said it looked like "something the corgi dragged in".

I liked it Kate. Maybe I will drop one of my hats off in the post for you. Anyone got an address or is it just Care of the Queen, Buckingham Palace. It would get there right?

This isn't the first time Kate's head has got us all turning for a sneaky second glance as she has previously been spotted wearing hats by Philip Treacy and Whiteley Fischer.

There are already rumours flying around hat land that Philip Treacy may be designing a wedding hat for the bride to be as royal watcher Katie Nicholl told The Daily Mail “Kate recently met Treacy after the Duchess of Cornwall recommended his designs for the senior members of the wedding party, including mother-of-the-bride Carole.” Indeed it was Treacy who designed the feathered wedding hat worn by Camilla Parker Bowles at her 2005 wedding to Prince Charles.

Me thinks however that this Lady has taken inspiration from a previous young princess...

I am all for it Kate and really hope you end up in a hat for your wedding. The more hats on heads the better!
