The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched down this afternoon in Victoria, the capital of the Canadian province of British Columbia, with their children in tow. The entire family were dressed in shades of blue to kick off their visit to Western Canada, with Kate in the most marvellous new hat.
Made of felt in a moulded saucer shape, this design is lavishly trimmed with maple leaves (the national emblem of Canada) and a central bloom made up of multiple bow loops and blue seed pearls. While we have seen a similar design on Kate before (remember this red version for the Diamond Jubilee Flotilla?), this piece stands out thanks to the vibrant shade of blue- a colour which is fantastic on the young Duchess. I particularly like how the well-embellished hat provides a beautiful counterpoint to Kate’s refined and very sleek dress.
