Royal Hats

This week, the Luxembourg royal family celebrated the 70th anniversary of Grand Duchess Charlotte’s return from exile after WWII. It was wonderful to see Grand Duke Jean able to take part. (Luxarazzi) See a video here at RTL.

Wonderful reviews of the gowns and tiaras worn to the first and the second gala birthday dinner for Queen Margrethe’s 75th birthday dinner (Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor). The Court Jeweller also has this piece on all of Queen Margrethe’s tiaras.

Princess Charlene was busy with her foundation this week, supporting some young rugby players in the 5th Tournament Sainte Devote and teaching some South African children to swim (Paris Match)

  1. This Week’s Extras was a good collection of royal news stories so thanks for these updates HatQueen. I hate Queen Margrethe’s beanie hat, but she looked lovely at her 75th Birthday events and I wish her a Happy Birthday. I enjoyed seeing all the other Royals in their finery. The Brunei Royal Wedding jewels were fabulous. Princess Leonore is a cutie, and hopefully a future regular Royal hat wearer. Queen Elizabeth’s hat collection included in a new collection of Australian stamps released for her upcoming 89th birthday is an excellent collection.

  2. I do not like that hat, no way and yet her smile on viewing her portrait was amazing. Her smile was worth it all to see her even in that hat…
    PL, how cute this baby girl is, she will surely wear some great hats as she grows up.
    OE, now this lady knows her hats….some of these are so beautiful and I wish I had just one in my wardrobe.

  3. I completely agree with you, HQ. those are some of QEII’s very best toppers, at least from recent years. Whoever made the selections must surely subscribe to this blog! 😉
