Kate Middleton and Queen Camilla avoided a major fashion disaster at Monday’s windy Commonwealth Day service.
The Queen Consort and Princess of Wales hung on to their iconic hats as they made their way to Westminster Abbey to avoid embarrassment.
Camilla and Kate were all smiles as they attended the annual Commonwealth Day service, marking their first in their new royal roles. The two dignitaries seemed to laugh as they held their hats to keep them from blowing away in the wind.
The moment was reminiscent of Princess Eugenie’s 2018 royal wedding, when wedding guests struggled with the wind to keep their hats off or their skirts up. Even the open-top carriage ride of the bride and groom was canceled due to bad weather.
However, Kate and Camilla rocked blue ensembles paired with statement jewelry for the annual event.
Prince William’s wife wore a blue Erdem dress and skirt with Princess Diana’s sapphire and diamond earrings and the Prince of Wales’ feather brooch. Meanwhile, Camilla opted for a blue dress and coat with a feathered beret, along with a sapphire and diamond brooch that belonged to the late Queen Elizabeth.
