it's a big day when Kate Middleton
busts out her fancy-pants headwear. The Duchess of Cambridge, Queen of Amazing hats, pulled out an oldie-but-goodie — she last wore the prim topper to a wedding back in 2011 — today for an official visit to London's tube (the subway in States-speak) with the Queen. (The actual
Queen that is.)(Photo by Getty)To celebrate the tube's 150th anniversary, the Duchess cloaked her little grape — a.k.a. the royal bun in her oven — in a dark teal bead-embellished coat by Danish designer By Malene Birger. She coordinated her Episode Angel black suede heels with a matching clutch and finished things off with Cornelia James black wool gloves.
A very snazzy outfit for someone who "misses traveling the tube,” as so she said
today. Oh, royal woes!(Photo by Getty)(Photo by Getty)Oh, and while we're on the topic of great accessories, the Duchess was also given this to wear today:(Photo by Getty)
