For the first day of the races, Princess Beatrice wore a navy percher hat with feather trim.
Christie: I love this look on Princess Beatrice. A nice clean base is perfect to offset the texture in her emu and burnt ostrich hearl trim. The trim also works well with the gold detailing in her skirt. The style of the headpiece elongates her face and works well with her hairstyle. A really well put together look.
Fiona: Ooh, this is a pretty mini shaped coolie percher – subdued, subtle. The feather trimming is wispy and flyaway and works well with her hair colour. What I love about this hat is the understated untrimmed edge. Very classy hat but not so sure about the satin lapels on her jacket with the double breasted buttons and cropped waist – perhaps a little old for Beatrice.
Jill: Pretty, youthful and safe all good things in the world of the royals! The beading on the base is a very nice touch, the lines are very clean and the feathers are lovely with her hair color. Somehow I think I am a bit disappointed but only because she looked so fabulous at the tea the other day and this suit seems a bit ill fitting (and too old for her).
Royal Hats: I thought this was a great hat for Princess Beatrice the first time around (for all the reasons already mentioned!) and it’s nice to see it again. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait another three years for a third outing.
Well that’s easy- we’re all fans of this design on Princess Beatrice! Do you join us in our affection for this hat?
