Part III of this summer’s exhibition, “Fashioning A Reign: 90 Years Of Style From The Queen’s Wardrobe” opens today at Buckingham Palace. It looks simply amazing and I can’t say how jealous I am of those of you able to attend.

The Swedish Royal Family posed for a lovely outdoor photo (hopefully, the start of a new tradition!). Their efforts prove that wrangling toddlers is a challenge no matter the royal pedigree.

  1. This Week’s Extras was packed full of great news about the Royals, so thank you for doing so much research HatQueen. “Fashioning A Reign: 90 Years Of Style From The Queen’s Wardrobe” looks like a fantastic exhibition and I am deeply envious of anybody living or visiting in England who is able to see it. Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser always manages to look so elegant. Happy Birthday to Prince George. Time flies, I cannot believe he is 3 years old already! Crown Princess Masako always manages to look effortlessly chic.

  2. Sheikha Mozar- love the swoop on that brim!
    Mette-Marit: I am always happy to see M-M wearing something, anything, on her head. Interestingly, black head adornments tend to punch above their weight on M-M, because of the drama of the contrast against her light hair. This one seems to have sufficient presence and also modern detailing, so I am giving it the thumbs up.
    HM’s exhibition from the Royal wardrobe: every picture is gold – thanks HatQueen!
