Diamond Jubilee Hat Tricks: Princess Beatrice V Princess Eugenie

If ever there was an occasion to wear a hat (apart from at a wedding), the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations is it.

And Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice both decided to don headgear for the Big Jubilee Lunch at All Saints Church - with differing success levels.


While Princess Eugenie looked sleek and sophisticated with a coral dress and understated black hat with matching coral accent, Princess Beatrice donned what looked like a Victorian child's bonnet.


Her tie-dye effect dress and mismatched shoes were also less successful than her sister's apricot number.


But, on the subject of hats, the Queen herself ruled the style category with her cream Swarovski-covered bouclé number, while the Duchess of Cambridge (named Hat Person of the Year in 2011), also wowed with her scarlet stunner.


Who do you think is wearing the best - and worst - hat? Let us know below...
