Kate Middleton makes first ever fashion mistake in hat that hides her pretty face

Kate Middleton barely puts a nude-pumped-heeled foot wrong when it comes to well, almost anything but today we're surprised to say her choice of head wear is not our favourite.

The usually perfectly poised Duchess of Cambridge attended the Queen's birthday celebrations clad in a duck egg blue dress complete with folded neck and bracelet sleeves.

While her hair remained perfectly shiny and her face flawless we can't help but complain  that her satellite disc style hat just doesn't sit right with us.

K-Middy by no means looks bad, but the hat hides her perfect peepers and creates a shadow over her face.

For the Trooping of the Colour ceremony, Kate sat next to Camilla in the same pale blue shade, but fashioned her look with  a feathered hat and classic pearl choker.

Opposite the ladies in their carriage was a rather dapper looking Prince Harry who echoed the colour scheme with his blue beret.

Ok, we know it's his uniform but nice to see some royal colour co-ordination!

The HRHs received plenty of public attention as the crowds gather to witness the ceremony at the Horse Guards Parade.

The event follows yet more royal commitments for Kate who spent last night taking 150 children from the charity The Art Room, to watch The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe on stage.

It was a solo engagement though as Prince William stayed at home watching the footie.
