Cathy Cambridge in New Zealand

Posted on April 07, 2014

Oh, Cathy. Granny Betty made you wear that thing on your head, didn’t she?


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their son Prince George arrive at the Military Terminal at Wellington Airport on a Royal New Zealand Air Force aircraft at the start of their Royal Tour of New Zealand and Australia. Catherine is wearing a Catherine Walker red dress and coat paired with a Gina Foster pillbox hat, Kiki McDonough ‘Grace’ earrings, and Emmy Shoes suede pumps.

Awesome coat, though. If that hat was a little bigger and made out of fur, you could be working an Emerald City Guard kind of realness. But really, you need to accidentally lose that number. You’re not really the kind of gal who can work a hat. Admittedly, “sporting headgear” is one of the few requirements of your position, which makes it something of a problem. Even so, we’d rather see you in some silly fascinator than this. We’re a decade-plus older than you and we’ve never seen that had on any woman who wasn’t a senior citizen. It’s just not for the under-70 crowd. Not anymore.

That baby’s got “Windsor” written all over its face.
