With the focus in France for the Luxembourg Royal wedding this weekend, we have a few British hats to catch up on! Yesterday, the British Royal family, who are still up at Balmoral Castle, attended Sunday service at nearby Crathie Kirk. The Queen wore a hat that has absolutely stumped me- a straw hat with a brown split crown (the same shape as this hat), a pale green rolled brim and magenta pink feather trim. It looks like there are also some green straw ribbon curls tucked on the brim as well. This is not a hat I recall seeing ever before and it appears to be custom made to match with her green, brown and magenta plaid suit. Somehow, I just don’t think it’s a new hat (the Queen usually unveils new hats on royal tours and not on her personal vacation). Do any of you dear readers recall seeing this distinct hat before?
Designer: the shape looks like similar other hats made by Angela Kelly
The Duchess of Rothesay (as Camilla is known by her Scottish title when in Scotland) repeated her red wool beret trimmed with two pheasant feathers. Camilla has been choosing smaller hats than usual in the past few months and it is a trend I think works very well for her.
The Earl and Countess of Streathearn also attended church yesterday morning. Kate repeated her black wool felt beret trimmed with flowers made in the same material (you can see better photos of this hat when she last wore it back in March). Kate has worn this hat with her hair up and down; I think it works better with her hair down, as she wore it yesterday.
