Ruslan Bahinskyi created hats for Camilla and Kate Middleton

The world-famous Ukrainian designer Ruslan Bahinskyi created unique hats for Camilla, Queen Consort of Great Britain, and Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, who is currently fighting cancer. The hats are decorated with special flowers that carry powerful symbolism.

Bahinskyi personally met with Deputy British Ambassador Nicholas Harrocks in Kyiv and handed him gifts for the wife and daughter-in-law of British sovereign Charles III. This was reported, in particular, on the Instagram page of the Ruslan Bahinskyi brand.

"Yesterday I had the great honor of handing over two specially created Ruslan Bahinskyi hats for Her Majesty the Queen and Her Highness the Princess of Wales! Thank you for the sincere words of Nicholas Harrocks and for such a special handover ceremony, which took place at the British Embassy in Kyiv with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine. Thank you for the honor and trust!" the designer shared.

The designer put cards in the box with explanations of what each of the hats symbolizes.

For example, for Kate Middleton, the Ukrainian created a traditional canoe hat, which is part of the silhouette of Ukrainian folk costumes. The deep green color of the hat is harmoniously combined with its special element – a white forsythia flower made of silk, which was handmade by our craftsmen. Forsythia is one of the first flowers of Ukrainian spring, a symbol of life and hope. This can be considered an eloquent sign of support for Princess Catherine in such a difficult time for her and her family.
