After enjoying Jimbo’s wonderful retrospective on Princess Anne’s Easter bonnets last week, let’s take a similar look back at those worn by Princess Beatrice. Here goes:
Royal blue velvet Philip Treacy in 2003; Fascinator in 2004; Ecrcu percher with feathers in 2010
Philip Treacy gold metallic straw disk in 2011; Cream and navy Gina Foster percher for Maundy Thursday in 2012;
Yellow felt Rachel Black beret with ombre feather for Easter Sunday 2013
Textured pink tweed boater from Emily London in 2018
The 2012 hat technically did not appear on Easter Sunday (it was worn to a Maundy Thursday along with the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh), it’s such a lovely piece I decided to include it here. Looking at the group as a whole, I find it the lack of brimmed designs particularly interesting- with the exception of the 2016 saucer and the 2004 fascinator, all are percher cocktail hats. This style certainly has been en vogue for the past decade and Princess Beatrice wears it well.
Thoughts about this group of hats? What would you like to see Princess Beatrice wear this Sunday for Easter?
