I really dislike Crownprincess Mary's hat (even though it is a Philip Treacy-hat):

How curious, I LOVED that one from Mary. It didn't strike me as asymetric, horribly coloured or ridiculous as many others that have been posted here

Another bad hat worn by a royal: the finger-like hat Maxima wore in Austrailia last fall (not long after she announced she was pregnant with Ariane)

Here's a picture of it from PPE, originally posted by Her Majesty

Maxima has actually surpassed Mett-Marit with the worst hat style ever - some of them i wouldnt even describe them as hats its more like a random piece of material shaped strangely plonked on her head
http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/Sep2007/07091803.jpg - one her worst ones in the last year

does she have a competition with herself to try to wear the strangest hats out???

Well that's just downright bizarre...what is it?? A two-hat-in-one TWOFER?? I can't believe the Princess went out with that mess on her head.

I have to nominate Sophie Wessex's strange "satellite dish" hats. At least, that's what I call them. And they're usually gray -- not sure if it's the same hat, but I've seen it at least twice.

I actually like Sophie's style of hats...and I liked the satellite dish ones too (although they have been criticised). I think they're fashionable and different, and I like the fact that she takes risks and doesn't stick with the same conservative style...hence Princess Anne.

"Hey, where's my hat? I can't find my hat!"
"Let's go, we have to leave!"
"But I can't still find my hat! Oh well, I'll just wear this lampshade."

I thought Princess Claire's hat was kind off pretty, it was different & matched her outfit nicely.

Not bad at all. I think the hat itself is cute & elegent. The feather looks out of place, maybe if the feather went around the hat, wouldve looked nicer than sticking out.

What a thread! Honestly, I have been laughing and appalled at the same time. Maxima, Maxima, Maxima--some of her hats are really and truly hideous. She is such a beautiful and vibrant and exuberant woman--but her hats need not be! UGH!
I do have to disagree a bit--I think that for the most part Mette-Marit has chosen lovely hats that really suit her delicate features--my biggest concern in seeing her in these posts was her outfit at Charles and Camilla's wedding--black hose and silver shoes? UGH.

Now, when I saw the title of the thread the first hat that came to mind was one Diana wore in Italy on a gondola. It was this turquoise hat with a wide, turned up brim. It was hideous--really--its imprinted in my brain. We can blame 80's fashion to a degree, but common sense should have some responsibility as well. I cannot find a photo--perhaps someone knows where one can be located?

I agree, very ugly. She has never worn it again and we know why .

I instantly thought of Mette Marits ugly red big hat - the one she wore on the National Day 2002 when her face was burnt. Red is not Mette Marit's colour and this huge red moster hat was simply hideous.
