Ever since her engagement to Prince William, Kate Middleton has won the hearts of millions. Always elegant and perfectly poised, she is an exemplary Royal. We love her timeless style and her playful twists on outfits and accessories, and we especially love the interesting fascinators she wears on special occasions. Here, we’ve rounded up fifteen of our favorites.

Milliner: Sylvia Fletcher
We love: The bold red hue, and playfulness of this wool felt fascinator with flowers attached to both the top and bottom of the upturned brim.


Event: Wedding of David Jardine-Paterson and Emilia D'Erlanger in Devon, England, on April 17, 2010
We love: The fun, flirty style of this little fascinator, as well as the bright red hue. Kate keeps it simple with a dress in a matching red color and minimal accessories.


Event: Canada Day 2011 celebrations on Parliament Hill , during Kate and William’s royal tour.
Milliner: Sylvia Fletcher
We love: The playfulness of this fascinator! It’s such a lovely, thoughtful piece for Kate to wear due to it’s red hue and very Canadian maple leaf design.


Event: Kate’s first official Royal Christmas Church Service, 2011.
Milliner: Jane Corbett
We love: How simple and feminine this fascinator is. Made out of wool felt and velvet, its deep-plum hue is perfect for winter, while the bows at the back add a festive touch. 


Event: Buckingham Palace Garden Party, part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Milliner: Jane Corbett

We love: The clean, sculptural lines of this fascinator, with surprise flowers peeking out from under a slightly upturned brim.


Event: The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee
Milliner: Jane Taylor Millinery
We love: The rounded curves of this pillbox-style fascinator, as well as it’s delicate, versatile hue and birdcage veil.


Events: Epsom Derby (2011), Prince William’s Order of the Thistle ceremony, Sarah McCorquodale’s wedding ceremony (among others)
Milliner: Whiteley Hat Company
We love: The versatility of this hat! The simple style, neutral color, and pillbox cap design make I a unique piece that’s easy to pair with any ensemble for a formal or semi-formal occasion.


Event: Wedding of Camilla Parker Bowles’ daughter, Laura in Wiltshire, England, on May 6, 2006.
We love: How unique this fascinator is. A flurry of cream and brown ostrich feathers sits atop a rounded cream base. While it’s different from the other fascinators Kate has been spotted wearing recently, it’s a perfect example of the Kate’s playful style and which is appropriate for a fun occasion such as a wedding.


Event: Kate’s first official Royal duty: launching a lifeboat in Anglesey, Wales

We Love: Neutral hues and lovely curled pheasant feathers which match Kate’s hairstyle on the day. 


Event: Trooping The Colour (2011)

We love: The simplicity of this look. It’s elegant and sophisticated, but Kate’s fascinator has enough architectural detail to make it interesting.

Milliner: Rachel Trevor-Morgan
We love: The rounded curves of this pillbox-cap fascinator, and it’s navy blue hue that’s unexpected but still classic.


Event: Church service to mark Prince Philip’s 90th birthday
Milliner: Philip Treacy
We Love: The playful shape and florals on her hat, that play off the brocade pattern on her coat.


Event: Trooping of the Colour
We love: The cool gray color, and the crispness of the shape of this fascinator, which is a flat disk made of sinamay accented with architectural sinamay loops.


Event: The Order Of The Garter    
We Love: The detail on this steel-grey fascinator. Everything from the sinamay loops to the curled pheasant feathers that are curled just so makes it one of the chic-est pieces in Kate’s fascinator arsenal.
