One thought on “This Week’s Extras

  1. Thanks for these updates HatQueen. This Week’s Extras was an excellent collection of royal news stories as usual. My favourites were the articles about the Chelsea Flower show and the Chelsea Pensioners, and Prince Harry’s Sentebale garden at the Chelsea Flower Show. It’s a wonderful show. I would love to go someday. Queen Margrethe looks good in pale blue, and this was one of her better hats. At least she doesn’t look bald in this one! Princess Kiko’s navy suit and pillbox was elegant, but not exciting.
