  1. Some royals were looking very good this week – love Harry in his uniform; Flora Ogilvy looks gorgeous; Charlene looks impeccable (as she so often does these days); Camilla dresses more appropriately than anyone for an Asian tour (I feel sorry for Charles having to wear his tie, although his tropical suit does look great); and the royal ladies at the remembrance festival concert did their country proud with their elegant style, every last one of them.
    The new hats are fabulous as expected. This is only the second time I can recall seeing a hat in the weekly selection which I don’t like – the Jill Courtemanche cloche. The hatband colour could be better, and I wish the brim stitching wasn’t visible

  2. That is such a beautiful picture of Queen Mathilde! The little Prince and Princess of Monaco look so adorable! The camel fedora with applique and the printed felt hat were amazingly beautiful. One of my favorite color combinations is pink and grey, so I loved the last hat that caught your eye this week HQ. Thank you. HM looked amazing. The contrast of the velvet really was perfect for her. What a lady! I am so glad Prince Phillip accompanied her tonight.

  3. And yes, for anyone who was wondering, that IS a Tardis. (Or at least a replica of one.)
