Love it or hate it, the Princess Beatrice wedding hat has reached iconic levels. Of all the pomp, ceremony and high fashion at the wedding of the century, it is perhaps the hat worn by Princess Beatrice of York that has gotten the most attention. It has its own fan page on Facebook, it has been photoshopped in every way imaginable. It has been described as an octopus, a pretzel, a toilet seat lid and antlers with ribbons. It has even been cited as a reason that the photos of a dead Osama bin Laden haven’t been released.
The Irish hat designer Philip Treacy has been defensive regarding his design while Princess Beatrice herself has expressed disbelief that her hat has garnered so much world-wide attention.
People claimed that Pippa Middleton almost stole the show at the royal wedding but the real show stealer was a hat.
Now the Princess Beatrice wedding hat is to be auctioned on eBay for charity.
