Nine Reasons that could explain Princess Beatrice’s Hat

April 30, 2011

As some of you who MAY NOT HAVE BEEN LIVING UNDER A ROCK THIS PAST MONTH may be aware, there was a Royal Wedding last night (Australian Standard Future Time).  Beautiful ceremony, lots of old people, etc etc – but one thing stole the show.  I’m not talking about the fact that Posh Spice wore a black fitted sheet to the wedding or that The Queen spent much of the ceremony nodding off (word!).  Of course, I’m referring to Princess Beatrice’s Official Wedding Hat.


But what is it all for?  Now, I’ve had several hours (not to mention several bottles of Merlot – because morning drinking isn’t weird at all) and I’ve come up with the following possible reasons :-

01 – She was trying to get better tv reception of the ceremony in case she had shit seats.

02 – She was styled by The Haus Of Gaga.

03 – Turns out fashion sense really is hereditary and comes from the Mother’s side.

04 – She was just trying to distract everyone’s attention from Eugenie’s AWFUL dress

05 – Sarah Ferguson is being smuggled into the ceremony behind it

06 – In a grand tradition dating back to the late 1700’s, all royal family members get dressed in complete darkness (which would explain SO much..)

07 – It came in a Lucky Dip Box outside Westminster Abbey.

08 – She’s secretly helping Frodo hide the precious from Gollum.  Or Avril Lavigne..

09 – She’s baiting it up after the ceremony and going fishing in the Thames.


Here it is again, from a different angle :-

You just know Aretha Franklin’s Inauguration Hat is weeping into it’s Hatbox..

    How can you even compare Aretha Franklin’s Inauguration hat (which was incredibly cool) with Princess Beatrice’s William & Kate’s Wedding hat (which was really stupid looking – but oddly has grown on me – a l-i-t-t-l-e bit!).

    Fair Call. Aretha’s Inauguration Hat is clearly the superior piece of millinery. I do completely enjoy the high fashion absurdity of Bea’s though. In fact – I think FOX should do a special Celebrity Hat Swap edition for the two of them. Or maybe a nice middle of the road Buddy Comedy?
