This Week’s Extras

Royal Hats

Quick note before we get into the news- I’m setting off on vacation today until October 20. I have prepared a post to keep you entertained each day while I am away and have kept comments open for you to chat among yourselves and share any hats worn that day. Between the Danish opening of parliament next Tuesday and the Dutch state visit to Portugal the week after, there will certainly be hats for you to share and discuss. See you in three weeks!

  1. It was lovely, thank you! I’ve just located some more photos of Princess Annemarie’s modified pillbox hat which appears to have black faux stress marks over it. It’s a very odd combination with her white eyelet dress.

    Princess Annemarie also wore a bright pink headpiece during this visit

  2. I hope you have a lovely holiday, HatQueen, and thanks very much for all the preparations you’ve made for our entertainment over the next three weeks!
