Members of the British Royal family attended attend a memorial service yesterday at Westminster Abbey to celebrate the life and work of Sir David Frost. The Duchess of Cornwall wore a black calot hat trimmed with a dramatic wave ribbon trim and large bloom. She has several other hats similar in shape and I think it is a shape that suits her very well.
Designer: Philip Treacy
Previously Worn: I believe this is a new hat
The Countess of Wessex wore a unique vertical plate hat trimmed in circles of narrow ruffled ribbon.
Princess Beatrice attended with both of her parents. Beatrice repeated a new charcoal grey flat disk hat with embroidered (or beaded?) flower detail. Her mother Sarah, Duchess of York, wore a black brimless and crownless hat with veil and large bow tails at the back.
Designer of Princess Beatrice’s hat: unknown. I believe this hat is new
Designer of Sarah, Duchess of York’s hat: unknown. She wore it to Princess Diana’s funeral on September 6, 1997
Lady Sarah Chatto and Viscountess Linley also attended the service (seen behind the Duchess of Cornwall). Lady Sarah wore an elegant black saucer hat while Serena wore a chocolate brown wool calot trimmed with a monochrome felt flower.
Designer of Lady Sarah Chatto’s hat: Stephen Jones
Previously Worn: June 17, 2013; June 2012; July 30, 2011
Designer of Viscountess Linley’s hat: unknown. Perhaps a variation on Lock & Co’s Ballerina hat?
