  1. This Week’s Extras made interesting reading. I adore Charlotte Casiraghi’s fedora. Princess Michael’s jewels and clothes and hats are all stunning. I wasn’t going to click on the story about the job interview at Buckingham Palace, but after reading what Tatsuya Kuniyoshi says: January 17, 2015 at 10:10 pm, about what an ordeal it was, I was tempted. This was a fascinating story! Mia Tindall is such a cutie, and I’m so glad they put hats on her to protect her fair skin from the sun. John Boyd’s ready-to-wear hats are stunning.

  2. This is a very good series of articles so thank you HatQueen for providing this. John Boyd’s hats are fabulous, and he looks very good for 89 years. He has so much talent, I do hope he lives for many more years and that we see more of his hats on regal heads. Charlotte Casiraghi is such a pretty girl and the plum fedora suits her very well. I enjoyed reading about the job interview day at Buckingham Palace by James Brookes, What an ordeal. I can understand they have to be careful who they hire, due to security issues, but it sounds very tough indeed. I’m so please Belgium are issuing Queen Fabiola memorial stamps, and I hope that I may be able to buy some if they sell to overseas buyers. Rest in Peace great Queen.
