One thought on “This Week’s Extras

  1. I enjoyed This Week’s Extras HatQueen. I really liked the photos of the Norwegian royal family dressed in all their finery. Congratulations to the King and Queen on their Silver Jubilee! I didn’t even know there was a Youth Olympics. The Royal photos and videos of celebrations for Grand Duke Jean’s 95th birthday last weekend were entertaining. I didn’t realise he was still alive and abdicated for his son! Happy Birthday Grand Duke Jean! The Hereditary Grand Duke and his wife looked cute in their hairnets. Hats off to the British milliner taking Beijing by storm was fascinating. How odd that a former banker became a milliner, and she is obviously a very good one too. I don’t think I will ever forget her statement, “If you’re wearing a golden lobster on your head, it’s always going to be a talking point.”
