COVID-19 meant that many families around the world were separated for Christmas 2021, including the royals.
Whilst the Queen is spending the silly season at Windsor Castle, Prince William, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and their three children opted to stay at their Norfolk residence, Anmer Hall where the royals traditionally spend Christmas.
Though the usual Christmas walkabout was cancelled, the Cambridges were spotted driving to the Christmas Day service at St Mary Magdalene Church.
2016 marked the last year when they spent December 25 with Kate’s family.
The royal mother-of-three opted for a chic brown BLAZÉ Milano blazer accessorised with her favourite Catherine Zoraida fern leaf earrings topped off with a Philip Treacy wide brimmed hat.
Whilst we in the Southern Hemisphere are able to enjoy a warmer Christmas, hats are an important way to stay sun safe in summer.
Below we’ve compiled our favourite wide-brimmed hats to buy in Australia this summer so you can channel your inner duchess and start the new year in style.
