Rachel Trevor Morgan has emerged in recent years as one of the premiere hat designers in Britain. One of Queen Elizabeth’s milliners since 2006, her hats have also graced the heads of The Duchess of Cambridge, The Countess of Wessex, Lady Serena Armstrong-Jones and Princess Alexandra of Kent (to name a few). Last year she was interviewed by the Telegraph last year and the interview gives a both a lovely introduction to this talented designer as well as great insight into her design process.
Last week, we looked at some modifications The Queen has made to her hats. Rachel Trevor Morgan states in this interview, “The Queen does have her opinions about what the hat should be like and whether it’s working or not… she will say if something is not right.” I think that answers our wondering about who decides when one of the Queen’s hats needs to be modified!
I hope you enjoy “meeting” this talented designer today!
