    It’s a busy time for the British royal family as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepare to tie the knot. And like any guest in attendance of a wedding, you’ll need to dress for the occasion. And one thing that literally stands out at British royal weddings are the hats and fascinators adorning guests’ noggins.
    While hats have fallen out of style for everyday fashion, they have remained as tradition at fancy shindigs like royal weddings, horse races, and other British formal occasions.

    Women always wore hats mostly the black churches where the big hats and the Catholics used to wear scarves on their head and the reason for that the presence of the church angel a woman head should be covered that's not written in stone some people do and some people don't it's up to them but that's why they were there

    I think it also a knack for the tradition. ofcourse its what u said, but in the bigger picture when the world around us is evolving so fast, we r actually little apprehensive. as the horizon of whats acceptable whats not (gender fluidity , choose to end ones own life are such a frivolous idea for majority of us) expands, more of us are actually more reserved in our mind resisting the changes. the disruptive , revolutionary idea of 70s 80s youth is actually unpopular now. so actually cutting edge technology along with age old tradition is the style statement here. N the connected world is ensuring that hats r really good look at, so its catching up.
