  1. Duchess of Cambridge hands down for me. I thought she looked particularly beautiful that day, especially that lovely ethereal hat. Second……Lady Gabriella Windsor. She wears these large hats beautifully and has a lovely smile to boot.

  2. I never thought I would ever vote for anything that Princess Anne wore but I really think the cream hat looks lovely on her.

  3. It’s funny that the Princess Royal is standing in the same spot in the same room for both pictures! All that gold in the background blends in with the trim of her hats!
