Stylish Hats from the Royal Wedding

Royal family enjoys a long history relationship with hat.  To some extent, hat is a symbol of the royal family.Past royal weddings are remembered for all manner of posh hats, and sometimes they can be downright divisive:

Abigail Spencer and Priyanka Chopra did not come to play with these hats.

If there is one thing that makes British weddings different — and particularly royal weddings,it is the tradition of women wearing hats and fascinators . There is no “official” rule about what women should wear at a formal wedding in the UK,  but there is a strongly followed unofficial rule: You want to bust out an awesome-looking hat.

A hat can make or break an entire outfit. At yesterday’s marriage ceremony for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the guests did not disappoint.

Here’s a round-up of the best toppers and feathers from among the guests.

Pippa Middleton made an entrance in a beige cap with a flower accent and decorative netting.

Pippa’s arrival was the first big fashion moment of the royal wedding.

Kate Middleton went for a sculpted hat with a dramatic slant and floral details that matched her sister Pippa’s cap.

Kate wore her hat in the same shade as her Alexander McQueen coat dress, a recycled look she has worn for other occasions in the past.

Doria Ragland, Markle’s mother, looked beautiful in a modest mint-green cap.

While Ragland went for an elegant, minimal style, Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, went for a big pink hat with plenty of volume.

The queen wore a bright green hat with a pop of purple.

Queen Elizabeth II never fails to deliver when it comes to hats.

Believe it or not, Queen Elizabeth has changed with the times — to a degree.

Throughout the years, Queen Elizabeth has been photographed in some pretty epic hats. She seems to have an affinity for the head coverings but, as with most royal family traditions, there’s more to it than that.

Oprah Winfrey was one of the first celebrity guests to arrive — and naturally, she arrived in style.

Her wide-brimmed pink hat had both flowers and feathers with blush pink and grey tones.

Karen Spencer (Countess Spencer) went with a purple fascinator with an elegant, ruffled texture.

Karen, who is married to Princess Diana’s brother Charles Spencer (Earl Spencer), matched her hat to her outfit.

White ribbon gave the hat a summery feel.

Lady Kitty Spencer wore a green cap with a chic veil and a dramatic feather design.

The model, who is Princess Diana’s niece, was the epitome of elegance in a green dress matching her hat, and a sparkling necklace.

Actresses Abigail Spencer and Priyanka Chopra made dramatic choices for their arrival.

Spencer chose a flat, navy fascinator to complement the color of her polka dot dress, while Chopra went with a lilac hat with a whimsical flair.

Gina Torres wore a summery wide-brimmed hat.
