The third day of the Cheltenham Festival saw bright skies and attendance by two of the Queen’s grandchildren and their spouses. Zara Phillips Tindall wore her third new hat in as many days, this time a grey velour felt percher with round base and soaring feather trim. While I would have preferred a flatter base on this design and the omission of the awkward felt leaf on the side, the pairing of this grey hat with Zara’s orange coat is brilliant.
Previously Worn: This hat is new (and different than this very similar Jane Taylor design)
Zara and her husband Mike Tindall were joined by her brother and sister-in-law, Peter and Autumn Phillips. Peter wore a khaki brown fedora while Autumn wore what was described by the designer as a “velour felt beret with pheasant feather trim.” The feather detail on this hat is beautifully done and the piece works well with Autumn’s camel coat.

UPDATE: Princess Anne joined her children at the races today in a brimless black faux fur cap. While not my favourite style, it works very well with her punchy red coat and graphic scarf.
