Queen Margrethe repeated her bright pink hat and suit last Sunday to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Frederiksborg Castle’s Church
Queen Elizabeth also wore a pink hat to church last Sunday- one I think was new! It looks like a variation on a top hat in pink straw with an upcurled brim on one side but we’ll have to wait until its next outing for a better view. You can see glimpses of hats worn by Princess Anne and Autumn Phillips here.

The Duchesse de Vendôme’s sister, Doña María Magdalena de Tornos y Steinhart, was married last weekend in Vienna Austria to Comte Jean d’Andlau de Cleron d’Haussonville. The bride’s headpiece was noteworthy- before her father’s death in 2013, he gifted her with a necklace from his mother and she creatively incorporated it into her headpiece. (Nobility & Royalty Blog)
One of the hats at the Het Loo Palace exhibition on Princess Beatrix’s millinery appeared on social media this week. It’s such a beautiful colour palate that we don’t often see on royal hats. The exhibition, incidentally, has been extended until the end of October.
Reader Avery identified the hat Princess Stéphanie wore in England earlier this month as the work of Belgian milliner Amelie D’Hooghvorst. Great find, Avery!
