Mar 17 2020 - 9:45am

We all know the Duchess of Cambridge loves a hat [1], but Kate Middleton has also become rather partial to a luxe headband. Whether it's to keep her iconic brunette waves [2] in check, or to add some color-coordinated chic to her holiday outfit, Middleton's headband choices have consistently scored highly in the beauty stakes.

She clearly has her favorite designers — Jane Taylor and Juliette Botterill must be on her speed dial — but Middleton's also turned to affordable stores like Zara to get her headband fix. And the Duchess also has a favored style. Although she's been spotted in an animal-print plastic number back in the day, Middleton's recent choices have all been about making bold statements with either decadent fabrics like velvet and silk, or gorgeous embellishments either in the form of pearls or floral appliqués. She's worn these luxurious styles to christenings, weddings, church services, and Remembrance Days. Ahead, take a look at nine times Middleton has worn her headband so very well.
