Kate Middleton joined other royals to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation wearing a bespoke Jenny Packham dress and coat. The whole monochrome outfit was tied together with a matching floral fascinator by milliner Jane Taylor, which we've seen before.

Recall, Phillip Treacy, the UK's favorite milliner, deemed fascinators extinct earlier this spring, and hailed the return of proper hats. Still, either topper style is probably preferable to the 350-year-old crown weighing in at five pounds. Get excited for that one, KMids.
