Philip Treacy hats for royal wedding party
There's no official word yet on whether Kate Middleton will sport the ultimate in royal-wedding headwear, a tiara, on April 29, but she's apparently thinking about how to top off her bridal party's outfits.
The idea, the Mail suggests, came from Kate's soon-to-be stepmother-in-law: Camilla, duchess of Cornwall. According to an "impeccable" (unnamed) source, the Mail reports: "Philip has taken numerous phone calls from the Duchess of Cornwall since December and he was summoned to the Palace to meet Kate. ... There are going to be some flamboyant creations."
Over the years Prince William's fiancee has been spotted in an array of hat styles: beret, fedora, cowboy hat, baseball cap. She has worn hats with feathers, netting or wide brims (including, the Mail noted, a Treacy creation at William's 2006 graduation from army training).
