  1. I enjoyed This Week’s Extras as I always do HatQueen. Infanta Elena wore a gorgeous burgundy fedora. I hope that Princess Leonore has a Happy 2nd Birthday. She is adorable, and so is His Royal Highness The Gyalsey, of Bhutan. The behind the scenes features on handmade hats and the Luxemburg Royals were interesting.

  2. Infanta Elena looks terrific in her fedoras. She was literally born to wear them! This burgundy color is very good with her coloring. I enjoyed learning about the high cost and difficulties involved with making a handmade hat. Congratulations to the Bhutan Royals on the arrival of their son. I’m pleased to see the Duchess of Cambridge supporting children’s mental health. Happy Birthday to Princess Leonore, what a cutie pie! I never knew the background story about the Koh-i-Noor. I laughed about Duleep referring to Queen Victoria as “Mrs Fagin”, the receiver of stolen goods. The Luxembourg Royal Family doco was good, but I do wish there was an English language version. Thanks again HatQueen for entertaining us.

    • Of course! I did not go back far enough in my archive to find this event (because I couldn’t imagine a news source using a photo that is SO OLD for a current news item). Mystery solved!
