Let’s continue our look at the marvellous royal hats worn today for the service of thanksgiving celebrating the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth. Her daughter, The Princess Royal repeated her tan straw hat with wide chocolate straw and duponi silk bands around the crown and chocolate straw underbrim. The extravagant feather trim on this piece ties in very nicely with the impressive embroidery on Princess Anne’s jacket and chocolate accessories tie the ensemble together into a very harmonious look. It’s not my favourite palate on Princess Anne but she wears it well.
Anne’s daughter-in-law, Autumn Phillips, topped a lovely teal dress with a coordinating hat. The bespoke percher design features bumper shaped base wrapped in widely woven gold lace and a mass of gold, caramel and cream feathers at the back. The gold and teal colour scheme is unexpected and works beautifully with Autumn’s blonde hair.

Zara Tindall continued a string of beautiful percher hats with a this design in pale blue straw with an angular, sloped base, vertical navy feather trim and straw bow. On its own, the strong contrast between the hat’s straw and feather trim might not be to my liking but paired with Zara’s navy floral dress, it works well. She always looks amazing in blue.
