While Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s Givenchy wedding dress may have been the sartorial highlight of the royal wedding so far, the fantastical hats spotted at her big day’s festivities are giving her some major competition.

From Oprah Winfrey’s whimsical fascinator to the Queen’s elegant chapeau, there was no shortage of statement-making toppers from attendees who came to watch Meghan and Prince Harry tie the knot at St. George’s Chapel on Saturday, May 19. After all, is it really a British royal wedding if there aren’t plenty of outrageously stylish hats? With that in mind, here’s a look at the craziest (and most British) hats at the Royal Wedding.
