Queen Elizabeth in a very familiar (and much worn) blue hat for church last weekend at Sandringham. Princess Anne repeated a brown fur brimless hat.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wrapped up their visit to Norway yesterday with some more winter recreation with Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit. William sported the Navy Snow Star Bobble Hat from Gandys London while Kate wore the cream chunky knit Jasmine Beanie from Barts. Crown Princess Mette-Marit wore the black Caid deluxe cashmere knit hat from Zadig & Voltaire.

Simply elegant winter white saucer with crystal detail from Scottish milliner Maggie Mowbray

Fascinating 3D printed red halo hat (finished with real ribbon ties) from Australian brand Jill and Jack Millinery
Interesting shape on this blue straw hat with peaked crown and oval brim from German milliner Nicki Marquardt

Stunning denim blue saucer with dark feather trim from London based Bundle McLaren
And the loveliest red straw picture hat with dancing bow from Australian milliner Louise MacDonald

Mette Marit’s hat is from Zadig et Voltaire! https://us.zadig-et-voltaire.com/hat-women-caid-deluxe-cashmere-hat-black.html
Thanks, Sarah! You are the Scandinavian fashion ID Queen!
I’m so pleased to see the furry and knit hats continue to appear.
>Princess Anne’s simple hat works a treat with the flourish of her romantic cape-coat – the whole effect is spot on. Some younger blonde royals would look also good in this outfit – Zara, Beatrice and especially Autumn come to mind.
>Katherine shows yet again how to choose a beanie with style to complement one’s jacket, while her companions model the non-stylish options. She is looking radiant in recent pics, and her mastery of winter hat style highlights this so well!
Great hat from Princess Margriet. The red scarf is an excellent finishing touch.
Beautiful red picture hat! Excellent videos and photos.
Princesses Nobuko and Ayako attended the the 67th Kanto Tokai Flower Exhibition on February 2nd.
Ayako’s hat might have a bow: http://www.fnn-news.com/news/headlines/articles/CONN00383906.html
Princess Nobuko’s hat is so interesting!
Prince Edward has been sporting his trusty fedora in Sri Lanka this week:
He wears it well, doesn’t he?!
Indeed he does, but very surprised that Sophie was not also wearing a hat at that bright sunny outdoor event!
Princess Akiko attended the opening of the Japanese Sword Museum on January 18th
Princess Nobuko attended the memorial service at Chidorigafuchi National Cemetery on October 18, 2017.
Princess Nobuko watched karate during the 2017 National Sports Festival in Ehime Prefecture in October.
The Duchess of Gloucester, Honorary President, the Lawn Tennis Association, attended the Davis Cup Tie Matches between Spain and Great Britain in Marbella, Spain.
Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, attend the national commemoration of the Flood at the Flood Museum in Ouwerkerk, on February 1, 2018.
Thanks, Maja. This new hat is interesting enough to cover in its own post, along with the new hats worn by Princess Nobuko and Princess Ayako late last week.
I adore the photos of Princess Beatrix and her grandchildren hanging off the balcony. So charming!
The white hat from Scottish milliner Maggie Mowbray is so stunning. I would love to see that on a Royal head – Zara Tindall or Autumn Phillips.
The red 3D hat reminds me so much of something Princess Margaret wore.
My Grandmother used to have a hat in the exact same olive green felt that is seen in Mind Your Bonce hat. I’ll have to search for it. It’s a little worn around the edges, but a beautiful 1940’s style.
Great “Round Up” as always Hat Queen! Thank you!
