This Week’s Extras

Royal Hats

Carina Axelsson shared a photo enjoying a walk with her dogs in her favourite hiking hat. The Court Jeweller also posted an interesting article this week about the Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg inheritance and what it means for Carina and her partner Prince Gustav. 

Love the use of Petersham ribbon trim on this straw cocktail hat by Dutch milliner Eudia

Earlier this year, we saw Zara Tindall in a hat by Australian milliner Meg Rafter. I’d love to see her in more Rafter designs- these pieces from her new winter collection look fantastic. I adore the innovative uses of feather trim.

More is more? What do you think of this lavishly embellished butterfly themed design from Jane Corbett?

Princess Anne was in west Africa this week a looked to be enjoying her visit

Lovely snap of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall during their visit to Italy this week (which followed with a stop in Austria). Disappointingly, the trip did not include any hats.

  1. That green hat by Australian milliner Meg Rafter would match rather well with all the green coats the Duchess of Cambridge has a massed for the event where she gives out shamlocks.

  2. I didn’t understand previously that Petersham ribbon is grosgrain. I like the Eudia as a working royal hat. The texture adds a lot of interest.

    Meg Rafter’s use of feathers is indeed innovative, especially with the purple. And Camilla needs the Jane Corbett to top off her ensemble!

  3. What an interesting article you have put together for us, thank you. It is especially nice to see an Australian milliner featured, her work is striking and yes I love the way Meg has used feathers. I do like the Jane Corbett hat, worn by the right person with the right dress it would be stunning.

      • That would certainly make more sense, given that an actual Trinity ring (even one from a company other than Cartier) would be an oddly expensive hat decoration, at least for the casual hat wearer.

  4. Thank you for finding such interesting new hats for us to be amazed at. Feathers certainly are a versatile and beautiful trim material. And the butterfly hat is beautiful. I could see it at Ascot worn with just the right dress, maybe with a sheer floaty overlay.
