Duchess of Cambridge, headband

While hats and fascinators are a huge part of any royal wardrobe, the Duchess of Cambridge has been mixing it up lately with some stylish new headwear.

In recent months, Catherine has been favouring headbands a lot more, over the traditional wide-brim hats and eccentric fascinators.

The Duchess has been trying out her regal take on the headband trend with a range of different styles.

She kicked things off with a super-chic, and elegant white pick by Jane Taylor at the christening of her third child, Prince Louis, and was seen most recently in a red plaited headband at baby Archie's christening.

Catherine has also worn a few different headband styles to church services at Sandringham, and formal occasions at Westminster Abbey, proving that the accessory really does work anywhere.
