  1. 3 of the five that I nominated are included in the list…that makes me 8 out of 10 from both lists! Thanks for the hard work HatQueen!

    • Queen Máxima’s hats (1, 6, 8, 11) were all designed by Fabienne Delvigne
      The Duchess of Cambridge and Countess of Wessex’s hats (7,10) were designed by Jane Taylor
      Hats worn by Princess Haya, Crown Princess Victoria and the Duchess of Cambridge (2, 4, 5, 12) were designed by Philip Treacy
      Queen Elizabeth’s hat (9) was designed by Angela Kelly
      Crown Princess Mary’s hat designer has not been confirmed. I suspect it is Susanne Juul.

  2. I find it fascinating that the worst and the best belong to our dear Queen Max. Perhaps it’s because she’s the most adventurous fashion-wise in her hat choices (not to mention jewelry -that necklace that doubles as body armour!)
