I can't believe she's wearing her hair stuffed into a hair net.  A hair net?!  Surely the hairdresser could have created some sort of twist arrangement that would stay in place without a hair net.  With that hairdo and hat and that coat she would look like an old-fashioned school marm except for all that eye makeup and those extremely high heels.  Those heels are so high she has to lean backwards to avoid being propelled forward, further distorting her already-odd stance.

That hat and its placing make her look two or three times her age IMO. It looks ridiculous!

No.1:
The hat looks extremely similar to a powder box my Granny used to have on her dresser about 40/50 years ago. Satin boxy and with a little bow. It was long empty of the powder, but my Granny loved the satin box (was given to her during the war for some anniversary) and my sis and I always put the two pieces on our hat to play "ladies". We looked JUST like Kate.
No.2:
The hairstyle is great. And so very simple: you pull the hair into a low ponytail, twist it over once and then you stuff everything into the hairnet. Voila: done and oh so very stylish...not

That hat looks like she put it together herself with some satin material, cardboard and a glue gun  Nerves

Re. No. 2: right. And if/when she once decides to cut her hair, she can stuff the cuts into that hair net permanently and every time she needs an "updo", she can just pin the hair net into her neck, cover the whole mess with a silly pincushion hat and ... voilà: DM will go crazy about the new invention, KateNetBun.

By then mice will have nested in it, and the sight of them squirming around and poking their cute little pink noses out of the holes in the net will add an extra element of interest.  Supercontent  Don't mind me.  I had a strange sense of humour that tends to surface late at night or in the morning before I've had my second cup of tea, though I certainly think that hair-netted bun would benefit from mice. They could be champagne-coloured mice to match the outfit.

This is probably a stupid question, but since I'm not much of a hat wearer, I really don't know. How in the world does Kate -- and do others who fancy the same style -- keep attached all those hats that perch on the front of her head. I don't see any visible elastic or hat pins. Do these hats sometimes take flight?

They're on headbands, aren't they? I've seen that when I've looked at hats for purchase out of curiosity.

Yes, fascinators are often on headbands. But I'd still like to know how women hide those, esp when wearing their hair down. It's a mystery to me. Some women wear their hair up or down and the headband is visible, but I can't always spot the bands on Kate or others.

Combs
Perhaps the most basic attachment for a hat or a small headpiece/fascinator is a comb. It’s so basic that I feel almost silly mentioning it. Combs come in metal and plastic in a variety of colors and sizes.




Fascinator Clips
these little sew-in pop open and snap shut with little teeth to grip even the shortest hairstyles and hold small hats in place.





Elastics
For best results, place the elastic a little over halfway toward the front of the hat on either side. Small hats have less of a tendency to pop off that way.

and here's a little tid-bit...LOOOOOOOOOOOL   Laugh bounce


Hatinator
The term hatinator, which emerged in the early 2010s, is used to describe headgear that combines the features of a hat and a fascinator. The particular style of headgear favoured by Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is sometimes described as a hatinator.

I appreciate the explanations regarding how the hats are placed. I don't wear them and wasn't familiar with it (although I suspected the headband for the fascinator). I was always too afraid to ask about it! Smiley

I presume that Kate uses headbands: combs or pins are simply too dangerous. Why, imagine them hitting a critical point and her head simply pops like a pin to a balloon.
Though of course everyone who has ever tried to put an elastic band around a helium balloon knows how difficult this task is.
 Thinking
Sigh... perhaps the hatinators (that soooo sounds like detonator) are already attached to the wig, ahem the natural hair she is sporting?
Or better yet to her personal halo? Halo
