Probably my favourite part of the Royal Wedding is the amount of salty people reaching out for their phones, opening up twitter, and judging everything. It’s a beautiful albeit toxic sport, one that really brings out your inner Petty Betty. Especially when Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are on screen.
People bond over this pettiness so it was a disappointment, to say the least, when one of the peoples’ favourite sports – roast Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie’s choice of headwear – was absolutely cancelled because the royal sisters rocked up in genuinely acceptable hats and actually looked quite nice.
I myself didn’t recognise the pair until my phone started to sizzle from the sheer wrath of twitter.
How did this all come about?
Cast your minds back to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding when the sister’s rocked up in the most wonderfully horrid fascinators ever. You could not look away and no matter what angle you tried to tackle it from, Beatrice’s thing would reach out and slap ya across the face.
The sisters got majorly torn to shreds over social media and news alike. And even though they do have a bit of a ~ reputation ~ you had to take a moment to really feel for them before you allowed yourself to giggle at those monstrosities.
So for Harry and Meghan’s wedding, people were extremely excited to see what the sisters would come up with next:
I can't wait to see Princess Eugenie and Beatrice's hats..I hope they wear something loopily ludicrous/marvellous like they did at William's wedding. So far the white hat with the sticking up white feathers has it. #RoyalWedding

I mean, people were really excited:

But alas it was not meant to be because the sisters went with the most low-key pleasant I’m-A-Royal look ever and everyone was upset:
Eugenie wore a pale blue tweed Roksanda Viola dress with the most vanilla pill box hat ever by Stephen Jones. Beatrice wore a teal frock by Gainsbourg and a HEADBAND by Fiona Graham. Not a hat, not even a fascinator, just a headband.
And now for the tweets:
I love this. It’s basically Beatrice and Eugenie saying fuck you Twitter pic.twitter.com/13J6AAFu0J

Princess Beatrice's and Princess Eugenie's efforts are the biggest disappointment of my week #RoyalWedding

A real bummer.
While we’re here, we’re going to appreciate Amal Clooney’s look again because the woman can do no wrong.
How are you allowed to be that beautiful and smart and a decent human being? Bloody hell.
