This Week’s Extras

Royal Hats

Last Sunday’s outing to church saw repeated royal hats worn by Queen Elizabeth (in Angela Kelly), The Princess Royal (in a John Boyd cloche that dates back to at least 1984!) and the Countess of Wessex (in Philip Treacy).

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik wore eye-catching matching harlequin outfits to a costume party on New Year’s Day. Prince Henrik accessorised his suit with a black knit hat and mask.

New millinery designs that caught my eye this week:

Textured black calot/bandeau with feathers from Rachel Trevor Morgan
Ivory and ice blue percher with amazing ‘snowflake’ feathers from UK milliner Rachel Black
Forest green trilby with vintage ribbon flower from Vermont based Silverhill Creative Millinery
Ice blue felt percher with stunning quatrefoil patterned bow and feather from UK milliner Sally Ann Provan
Whimsical straw watermelon bumper hat by Milan milliners Gallia and Peter
Eye catching bright pink straw fedora with oversized metallic brim from Awon Golding
Statement cocktail hat from Jane Taylor with studded base, silk roses, straw twists and net veil

And this classic black straw hat with pork pie crown and gently sloped wide brim trimmed with overlapping ginea fowl feather hatband and pearls from Australian milliner Meg Rafter. There are several royal heads I can see looking fabulous in this hat.
