This Week’s Extras

Royal Hats

Queen Margrethe attended a worship service at Holmen Church last Sunday which celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Danish Sømandskristians and International Crones. She wore her burgundy brimless hat with black trim.

The new millinery designs that jumped out at me this week:

Interesting fedora/homberg hybrid from Australian milliner Helen Kaminski for our beloved male readers
Smart black straw pillbox base cocktail hat with silk flower trim from Cessiah Alice Millinery
Bright orange fedora from Parisienne milliner Veronica Merucci Chapeaux
It takes a lot to make me notice a fascinator but Lisa Tan certainly did with this white layered design  
Same for this stunningly beautiful but slightly bonkers floral headpiece from Australian brand Murley & Co. Millinery

And this season’s surging return of the boater continues with four wonderfully trimmed designs from Millinery by Mel

To mark the 70th Wedding Anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, new photographic portraits have been released worldwide.  The Queen and His Royal Highness will celebrate their Wedding Anniverary on 20th November 2017. The portraits, by British photographer Matt Holyoak of Camera Press, were taken in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle in early November.  In this first release, The Queen and His Royal Highness are framed by Thomas Gainsborough's 1781 portraits of George III and Queen Charlotte, who were married for 57 years. The marriage of the then Princess Elizabeth to Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten took place at Westminster Abbey on 20th November 1947.

  1. When my maternal grandparents celebrated their 50th anniversary in 1973, we all thought how HUGE the event was. Then, in 2013, my parents (both gone now) celebrated their 60th! WOW! Now, HM and PP on their 70th! Many congratulations to them from across the pond.
    BTW, neither my grandmother nor my mother were out riding at the time of their big days!
