Birthday of Princess Marie

Royal HatsPrincess Marie of Denmark celebrates her 38th birthday today. French born Princess Marie is not what you would call a prolific hat wearer and tends to favour small straw berets, pillboxes or headband fascinators hats. While I was tempted to choose a traditional French cloche for Marie, I think she would look wonderful in a small percher hat like this one designed by Australian milliner Marilyn Van der Berg. The shape is perfect for a petite princess, the net overlay gives a decidedly modern touch, and the feather would add some much needed height to Marie- all while exuding a very chic French feel.

  1. I really want to see Marie in some saturated color. Blue is great on her and a small scale Philip Treacy would give her some presence.

  2. Marie’s hats have been pretty plain and boring. I agree that a smaller hat is better for her because she’s so tiny but a small hat can still be fabulous!
