Kate Middleton pulls Philip Treacy out of the hat for wedding headgear





21 FEBRUARY 2011

The invites have been sent out and the photographer's been appointed.

And with the date for the royal wedding ever closer the all-important decision of who will design the wedding party's headgear has been revealed.

Award-winning milliner Philip Treacy has a long-standing affiliation with the royal family, having designed Kate Middleton's hat for Prince William's passing-out parade at Sandhurst in 2006.

Royal Ascot is usually marked by pictures of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie in his daring creations.

And in 2005, he was commissioned to create the two striking headdresses worn by the Duchess of Cornwall on her wedding day.

With a star-studded client list including fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker and a style which blends elegance with a whimsical sense of fun, Philip is a clever choice for the bride.

Although Kate is likely to be wearing a veil on her special day she may want a more glamorous accessory for the evening as she's apparently considering a change of outfit.

Philip may also be designing hats for the senior ladies of the wedding party, such as Kate's mother.
