Today also marks the 48th birthday of the Countess of Wessex (née Sophie Rhys-Jones). Sophie married Queen Elizabeth’s youngest son Prince Edward back in 1999 and since then, she has been one of my favourite royal hat wearers. Over the past year and a half, she has upped her fashion game and is looking better than ever. When I think back over some of Sophie’s recent hats, this pale grey embroidered and multiply-bowed statement hat by Jane Taylor, worn for Ladies’ Day at Ascot on June 21, 2012, is one of my favourites. Does anyone know the designer?
