There were four more British royal hats spotted on Christmas Day for the family’s attendance at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene. Princess Beatrice wore a bowed headpiece in black and white Harris tweed, trimmed with a red velvet rose. It’s a smart headpiece and I liked its unexpected pairing with her army green wool coat.

One of my favourite Christmas Day hats was the one worn by Princess Eugenie and described by the designer as a “red sloped beret in velvety felt, trimmed with a cluster of red felt leaves and shiny sculpted flowers”. I adore this hat- the long felt leaves give the small hat some movement and the flowers lend some festive sparkle. The colour was wonderful against Eugenie’s grey coat and her matching of lipstick to millinery is perfection. It’s such a great look for her.

Princess Anne repeated her trilby in light green brushed felt. She usually favours dark hued millinery in the winter and this piece is a stylish shape and a very smart colour on her.
Autumn Phillips topped her navy coat with a percher hat in the same hue. The large saucer shape of the navy felt piece is trimmed in a large curling bow which adds some lift and whimsy to the design and I really like how the colour contrasts with Autumn’s blonde hair. There is an ongoing debate here about how to wear long hair with hats- I think this one works beautifully for Autumn with her hair down.
