This Week’s Extras

Royal Hats

Tatiana Casiraghi and business partner Dana Alikhani modelling remarkable headpieces from their fair trade Muzungu Sisters clothing line

Camille Gottlieb repeated her fuzzy black faux fur bandeau headpiece this week at an event photographed by her mother, Prince Albert, her brother Daniel Ducruet and his girlfriend, Marie Hoa Chevallier.


New millinery designs that impressed me this week:

Gold and natural straw boater with red veil and flower from Astralian brand Locopa Designs
Smart navy felt beret based cocktail hat with burnt and arrow trimmed feathers from Rosie Oliva
Effortlessly soaring jinsin headpiece in the most beautiful shade of blue from Australian brand Jill and Jack Millinery
Striking black windowpane straw vertical saucer with red silk hygrangeas from Marilyn Van den Berg
Prettiest ruffled raspberry felt striped cocktail hat from UK brand Mind Your Bonce
Simply elegant wide brimmed black felt hat from British milliner Rachel Trevor Morgan
Silver button percher with blue veil and watery blue wave trim by Melbourne’s Felicity Northeast Millinery

And this easily wearable yet eye-catching graphic black wool cloche from UK milliner Karen Henriksen

 Royal Hats

Excellent article on the late King Michael of Romania by Peter Kurth, commissioned by Vanity Fair in 1990 but never published (Casa Regală a României)

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary shared this video of their family decorating their Christmas Tree (Danish Monarchy)

Queen Margrethe has been sharing her handmade Christmas ornaments on the Danish Monarchy’s instagram page each day this month. Today, she shared a sweet advent calendar she cross stitched for Princess Isabella (it looks like there is one for each of her grandchildren).

After ChicagoChuck’s post on tartan trousers for Ascot last year, I can’t resist sharing this photo of the Earl and Countess of Wessex at a special dinner for the Duke of Edinburgh awards back on November 14. The combination of tartan trouses and monogrammed velvet slippers is a memorable look.

The Portuguese royal family shared a lovely new portrait this week

New photographs released by the Imperial Household Agency for Crown Princess Masako’s birthday.

And we end this week with a shot of the cheeky cake topper at Thursday`s commissioning of HMS Queen Elizabeth. The photographer notes that it made the Queen smile.

  1. That is indeed a lotta look on the Earl of Wessex.

    I like the Karen Henriksen cloche, too. I agree with Shanon that it would be great for Meghan Markle, but it would also be a good working hat for many royals.

    CP Masako has a timeless beauty, doesn’t she?

  2. The silver button percher is exquisite!

    Rachel Trevor Morgan’s black felt hat is stunning! I would love to see that on Princess Charlene.

    If ever there was a hat suitable for Meghan Markle’s hat debut, I think the black wool cloche by Karen Henriksen would be it.

    Happy Birthday CP Masako. She looks utterly amazing. I must admit I love the Earl of Wessex’s tartan trousers and slippers. SO FUN!

  3. I like the boater from Locopa Designs and the wide brimmed hat from Rachel Trevor Morgan. Love Queen Margrethe’s creativity and passion for design.
    HatQueen – are you going to post Empress Michiko’s and CP Masako’s hats this past week? Not sure if I should add them here.

  4. I really think the Duchess of Cambridge needs that silver button percher with the blue wave trim. She has several ice blue outfits that match! I love Princess Masako in that wine/burgandy color. She looks great! Those tartan plaid trousers and velvet jacket and slippers leave me speechless!
