Kate Middleton's Go-To Fedora from Her Home Video Is Also Popular with Another Royal!
Kate loves the hat so much, she owns it in two colors
Kate Middleton sported the perfect accessory for a family walk along the beach.
Kate and Prince William surprised fans on their 10th wedding anniversary last week by sharing a rare video of life at home with their three children: Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, who turned 6 on Sunday, and Prince Louis, who celebrated his third birthday on April 23.
In a stunning shot of Kate holding Prince Louis's hands as they trek up some sand dunes, the Duchess of Cambridge sports a hat by Hicks & Brown, the Suffolk Fedora featuring a pheasant feather wrap ($133).
Kate, 39, is such a fan of the style that she owns the hat in both olive and navy. For a Jan. 2020 outing to church in Norfolk, the royal mom wore the navy version of the fedora with a long coat.
"Kate usually wears more formal styles, but she was attending church on a winter's day and our hats are made from wool, so they do add a bit of warmth," Alice Leet-Cook, cofounder of Hicks & Brown, the brand behind Kate's blue fedora hat, previously told PEOPLE.
Kate isn't the only royal who is a fan of the style. Sophie, Countess of Wessex has the same hat in her closet, although she opted for the camel color.
Sophie, 56, has been seen sporting Hicks & Brown's Suffolk Fedora on multiple occasions, including a May 2018 outing at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.
Royal women are known for their whimsical fascinators and fashionable headbands, but Queen Elizabeth usually sticks with her signature wide-brimmed hats.
"Very few modern women wear a hat as part of their work uniform, aside from perhaps members of the armed forces," British historian Robert Lacey explained to fashion journalist Elizabeth Holmes for her book HRH: So Many Thoughts on Royal Style. "It's a reminder that the Queen is indentured to a service, to a job."
