The Duchess of Cambridge delighted onlookers on Monday afternoon as she headed to Westminster Abbey to mark Anzac Day. Kate may have worn a beautiful cream coat dress by Alexander McQueen, but it was her headband that got everyone talking.
The ‘Calypso Halo’ was by Jane Taylor – the place the Duchess heads to when she wants a jaw-dropping headband. And can you blame her? They are quite literally works of art. Kate’s latest design cost £830 and was white, with a stunning black bow at the back. The brand’s website says of the style: “A sensational all-rounder halo headpiece made from iconic British tweed – ideal for weddings, smart events, and races – topped off with a fetching tuxedo satin bow at the nape of the neck for a smart finish.”
