If you mean the hats worn by the people in robes, that would be tradition.

Colin Firth as George R VI in Garter Star and Sash

At this link is a great photo of Firth in uniform wearing the Garter Star and sash (as was correct then, a lighter blue than today's Garter Sash) and many other medals/decorations. According to the article, the filmmakers went to great lengths to be sure the uniform was correct in every way.

This years Order of the Garter Ceromony is currently taking place. Naturally, all eyes will be on the Duchess of Cambridge, but I am interested to see what all the Royal women are wearing.

Lots more pictures in the GettyImages gallery. Catherine looks lovely, as does Sophie (and she's smiling, unlike yesterday.)

I imagine William was beside her as you can see Camilla is opposite. (I am guessing this because Sophie was beside Edward.) I am sure we'll see an image of them side by side at some point.

Camilla looks lovely as well - she has recyled a coat dress she first wore at Ascot (in 2006 or 2007?) and then again at the ToC the following year.
