April 30, 2011

Who knew that a hat would garner so much attention that it ends up having its own Facebook page. Yep, Princess Beatrice’s Royal Wedding hat has created quite a buzz, and that’s an understatement. In case you haven’t seen the pictures of whatever it was that sat atop her head, we’ve got the pictures here, so check ‘em out!

So here I was yesterday, a little over 24 hours ago, that I stayed up to watch and live blog the highly anticipated nuptials of Prince William and the oh so gorgeous, Kate Middleton. As we watched guests file into the Abbey to witness the event, we all were left a bit speechless when the Prince’s cousin, Princess Beatrice of York, emerged from her car upon arriving at Westminster Abbey.

Holy hat! Just what in the world is that that sits on top of her noggin? I immediately thought it looked silly and childish. I wasn’t alone. Almost immediately after the world caught sight of her horrid hat (or fascinator, which evidently is the correct term), a Facebook page was created known simply as ‘Princess Beatrice’s Ridiculous Royal Wedding Hat’. The page has already accumulated over 80,000 Likes, with many serving up their own thoughts of the Princess’ fashion fug.

Here’s what some had to say:

It’s an elaborate doorknocker.

Looks like a Dr. Seuss character!

She looks like she grew antlers for the occasion.

I think it’s actually a uterus and fallopian tubes.

In addition to the FB page dedicated to the unsightly Phillip Treacy creation, you must check out tumblr (, where many have submitted photoshopped pics of the fugly fascinator. Yep, there’s an hour of perusing through these hilare pics that I’ll never get back!

Give me your two cents on what you thought of Princess Beatrice’s Royal Wedding hat. Did you love it or hate it?
