There has been a virtual tidal wave of speculation about what Meghan Markle will look like on her wedding day: the dress, the hair, the makeup — style and beauty aficionados and royal wedding enthusiasts alike will finally find out if their guesses were right and wishes came true after months of hype and anticipation. But for some of us, it wasn’t the bride’s gown or lip color we most looking forward to — it was the guest’s fascinators. Not quite a hat and not quite a hair accessory, fascinators are a staple at high-society events, and some of the most striking and unusual ones have been seen at England’s royal weddings. Below are the fascinators that didn’t disappoint as Prince Harry officially welcome a new duchess into the family.
