It wouldn’t be a royal wedding without a fabulous array of extravagant head adornments on display.

And the attendees certainly did not disappoint with their best of British millinery when Zara Phillips tied the knot with Mike Tindall.

Topping off their outfits perfectly were Angela Kelly-clad sisters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, who had caused a stir with their headgear at the royal wedding in April.




Older sister Beatrice colour-matched her outfit with an asymmetric azure-blue dish-shaped fascinator that featured fabric flowers.

And Eugenie completed her monochrome outfit with chocolate and white feathered frippery.

Meanwhile, finishing off the Duchess of Cambridge’s look was a wide-brimmed inside-out frilly floral number, complementing her cream jacquard coat perfectly. Thrifty Kate was recycling the coat, having last worn it in 2006 for the wedding of Laura Parker Bowles and Harry Lopes.


The Queen, who was dressed in Stewart Parvin like her granddaughter bride, chose a traditional hat with feathers that set off her lovely peach-hued outfit.


And Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, opted for oversized with an extravagant spray of white flowers.
