The York Princesses also attended the final day of Royal Ascot today and, in a sweet moment, Princess Beatrice stepped in to present her grandmother with the Hardwicke Stakes cup. She wore a navy ‘slice’ brimmed hat described by the designer as a “straw coulis base with silk poppy trim.”
Jill: This entire look is wonderful! The dress is youthful and fashion forward and the hat is divine. The Princess looks lovely in navy and the clean simple line of this hat with the minimal trim looks effortless. I have been saying it all week but this is another fine example of the trim both above and below the platter adding a nice softness around the face. An absolutely wonderful look for Ascot!
Royal Hats: Talk about saving best until last! Great colour, great shape, great scale, great embellishment. It’s such a beautiful hat on Beatrice and one of my favourites of the week.
Fiona: This is also a great look today – a beautiful floaty print dress and classic courts, you can’t go wrong. Navy seems to be a really big colour this year! I nearly think her hat from yesterday may have worked with this outfit too – perhaps that will come out another day!!! The hat is very simple, nothing extraordinary, but compliments the dress beautifully. What I like about this hat is that it appears there is one enormous flower, split in two by the hat.
Christie: This is my favourite hat on the Princess all week! How gorgeous. I love how the detailing of the orchid petals works with the ruching in her dress. The hat seems to throw green somehow in the light. How intriguing! I would just love the Princess to have burgundy lips with this – what a knock out look it would be then! I just love it.
