From the Duke of Wellington near Hyde Park to the Duke of Wellington outside the Bank of England in the Square Mile a "hatwalk" was created by two very famous milliners (the ones who do all the hats for the royal weddings). Creating a total of 21 new looks for some of the most venerable in English history, we spotted a few:
The same company who designed Lord Nelson's original hat 200 years ago was hired to create the hat for his statue in Trafalgar Square.
The hats were commissioned by the Mayor of London and are the culmination of the Cultural Olympiad, part of London Festival 2012. Shakespeare in Leicester Square had a designer baseball cap, which was stolen and has yet to be recovered.
