Rocking The Royal Lady Hard Hat

Will and Kate visited the Tata Steel plant in Port Talbot, South Wales on Tuesday, February 4th, and looking at her looking fabulous in a hard hat got your friendly neighborhood hofdames to thinking: What is it about Royal Ladies that makes them look so good in hard hats? Maybe you can tell us.

Since Kate is the one that kicked this whole question off, let’s take a look at her first. The other day in Wales, in Sunderland in 2018, and her first Royal Lady hard hat experience in Denmark, right after her wedding in 2011.

Not to be out done, here are some other British royal ladies over the years. Look at Anne. You know she just single handedly provided power to Hucknall for the next six months.

The British ladies certainly make an effort, but I’d be willing to bet Vickan wears more hard hats than anyone. It seems she’s good for at least a half dozen hard hatted engagements a year.

The unflappable Mary got flapped. What do you suppose happened? Did she lose her hat? A shoe? We may never know.

I can only imagine what must have happened here to produce a face like this.

Actually, no, I really can’t imagine what must have happened here to produce a face like this.

Any royal “puzzlers” in your collection of photos? One where you just can’t figure out “why that face”? Maybe we can help! Pop it in the comments!

“Camilla. I don’t have a lot of time here, so listen carefully. I’d like to have tacos for dinner tonight. I know we just had them last Tuesday, but I really want them! Have Chef get right on it. I have to go now. I think they’ve figured out it’s me behind this hat. Okay…Bye.”

Hmmm. Okay, I suppose there’s a slight possibility that Charles might not have actually been on his cell phone requesting tacos for dinner. But wouldn’t it be great if he was?! Oh, the secret conversations they must have behind their hats!

Do you have any favorite photos of royals caught in awkward moments? And PLEASE remember the tone of our happy home as you share. No shots of “undies” will be allowed or tolerated. All royals must be appropriately attired at all times. Have fun!
