I so enjoyed hearing about your favourite royal hats of 2013! It was wonderful to look back at some of the lovely hats we have seen this year and hear the reasons why your favourites are your favourites. During the course of our discussion, ten hats emerged as the Favourite 10 Royal Hats of 2013 (click on each photo to link back to the original post for designer and photo credit information):
And the winning favourite, by a landslide, is Queen Mathilde of Belgium in the unforgettable pink hat designed by Fabienne Delvigne that she wore on the day she became queen.
Congratuations also go to Edouard Vermeulen of the fashion house NATAN for the beautiful dress Queen Mathilde wore. I think you’ll all agree that this would not be nearly as effective or beautiful without this particular dress.
Stay tuned tomorrow as we cheekily turn our discussion to our least favourite royal hats of 2013!
