This is some mad hattery!
Two of Kate Middleton's hats worn during her pre-Duchess of Cambridge days will be up for grabs later this month at the Passion for Fashion auction, hosted by Kerry Taylor Auctions.
Both the black feathered Aurora hat worn at Prince William's Order of the Garter in 2008, and the feathered Philip Somerville head topper worn in October 2010 at Harry Meade's wedding were custom-made for Kate and are expected to fetch at least $1500 each.
The highest bidders will also get receipts and copies of the milliners' diary entries from the Duchess' appointments.
For those in the Bermondsey area, the auction will take place on June 26 at the Kerry Taylor auction room.

MTV is taking the Jersey Shore across the pond with a new series: Geordie Shore.
The show is set to film in Newcastle where, according to MTV UK's director of television Kerry Taylor, "it is always summer", "no one wears a coat" and "Geordie girls are always out in their miniskirt".
Sounds kinda tame to us!
And if you were hoping to see a Geordie pouffed Snooki, don't hold your breath.
Taylor maintains the Geordie Shore is only "loosely" based on the original, but will definitely have "memorable characters who are funny and brash but at the same time warm and get on with each other".
The UK version of fist pumping starts this spring.
