A new era of monarchy: it became known what the hats of Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte meant at the coronation of Charles III
On Saturday, May 6, the official coronation of Charles III as well as his wife Camilla took place in London. As previously discussed, Kate Middleton broke the centuries-old tradition and wore a floral headdress to the ceremony, not a tiara. Princess Charlotte, the King's granddaughter, also wore a similar headpiece, only a smaller version.
One could not doubt that the decorations on the heads of the Princess of Wales and her daughter have a secret meaning. Vogue reported on it.
Princess Charlotte's headpiece is a Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen design creation in crystal and silver thread.
This peculiar crystal wreath is supposedly a tribute to an unusual motif that Charles III introduced during his coronation. It turns out that the sovereign invited the so-called Green Man to the ceremony - this is an ancient figure from British folklore, which symbolizes spring and rebirth. He wears a crown of oak, ivy, and hawthorn, as well as symbolic flowers.
In addition, the monarch had a lifelong interest in nature, gardening, and environmental issues. So the hats of Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte can be seen as a tribute to Charles' hobbies.
As you know, giving up the tiara is a violation of centuries-old tradition, but at the same time, Kate Middleton has once again demonstrated that she and her family, led by the chief heir to the throne, Prince William, are a new era of the monarchy. That's not to say that the Princess of Wales has gone against the rules. She only proved that conservatism can modernize on a par with the rest of the civilized world.
