Kate Middleton has been praised for her superb fashion taste and there's one accessory that she seems to favor—her fedora. 


Kate and Prince William surprised fans with a sweet family video to conclude their 10th wedding anniversary celebration. The video provided a rare glimpse into their family life, and in a sweet moment between Kate and her son Prince Louis, we can spot the Duchess wearing her favorite navy blue fedora from Hicks & Brown.

In the video, you can see Kate holding hands with Louis while sporting the hat paired with an army green jacket and red sweater over a frilled blouse.

This hat has been a go-to for Kate on multiple occasions, including during a church outing in Norfolk in January 2020. 

"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, co-founder of Hicks & Brown, explained to PEOPLE.

She's such a fan of the style that she even owns the fedora in an olive green shade.

Enjoy the classic look of a fedora with an added touch of pattern featuring a textured Pheasant feather. The hat was designed with wool for added warmth and comfort and comes in five shades to personalize to your wants (it even ships worldwide).

Kate's not the only one obsessed with the style of this fedora. In fact, Sophie the Countess of Wessex has also been seen wearing this exact style just in a different shade. Sophie opted for a more neutral shade and has been seen wearing the same hat just in camel rather than navy.

Back in 2018, the Countess of Wessex showed off the trendy look during an outing at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

It's not uncommon for royal women to sport a hat during public appearances, making this style is trendy enough to wear both casually or dressed up. If you're looking to spice up your outfits this spring, then definitely add this royal-approved hat to your cart!
