Since we have not yet completed any hat inventories for the Princess of Monaco, I thought it would be a good idea to peek into her closet for our next review of black hats. Since becoming a princess in 2011, Charlene has worn three black hats. Here they are, in the order they were introduced:
Designer: Rachel Trevor Morgan; unknown
Introduced: November 13, 2016
UPDATE: Since this post was published, Princess Charlene has added the following black hats to her wardrobe:
Charlene does not wear hats often (usually just once a year for Monaco’s National Day) so I was surprised to find three pieces in her rather meagre millinery closet. #1 and #3 are braver designs (something I’ll always applaud) while #2 is as quintessentially French as as it gets. Do any of these pieces strike your fancy?
