The Palm Court at the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane has started serving a special afternoon tea to celebrate Lock & Co.’s 340th anniversary this year. The cakes are beyond adorable.

On a further lighthearted note, Rachel Trevor Morgan shared her Easter bonnet in this brilliant and hilarious April Fools post last Sunday.

Several new hats caught my eye this week:

Such handsome and wearable casual summer men’s fedora from Munich milliner Nicki Marquardt
Wide brimmed navy straw design with jaw dropping feather from UK based Hannah Lauren Millinery
Interesting asymmetrical brim and crown on this straw/felt design from LA based Elmira Exclusive Millinery
Lovely cream windowpane saucer with statement feathers from Irish brand Montgomery Millinery
Eye catching quill trim on this wide brimmed black straw hat with rose from UK milliner William Chambers
Navy straw beret percher with unique emerald and navy straw handmade flower from Mind Your Bonce
Wide cartwheel brim picture hat with seed pearl studded crown from Dutch milliner Myra Van de Korput
Classic black and white scheme on a most modern saucer shape from Brisbane based Marily Van den Berg
Smart grey wide brimmed boater with graphic teal striped flying hatband from London milliner Jess Collett
Beautiful curves on the molded brim of this bright fuchsia saucer from UK milliner Tracy Chaplin

And from American milliner Karen Morris, this navy straw percher with punchy orange crin loop, quill and feather flower trim. I adore the contrast and energy on this piece!

 Royal Hats

Other drama in the Spanish royal family this week overshadowed Infanta Christina’s attendance at the the 25th Anniversary commemoration of the death of the Count of Barcelona. It has been a LONG time since she was included in a Spanish royal family event and while the memorial was for her late grandfather, her attendance still feels noteworthy.

  1. Among this weeks extra’s I specially like Scottish milliner William Chambers’ Mackintosh inspired hat. I’m an amateur of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (inevitably, with one of my daughters studying Art History in Glasgow) and I admire this clever and beautiful interpretation.

  2. Love RTM’s robin’s nest. The orange and navy Karen Morris is indeed spectacular and would be great for Maxima. The William Chambers black straw wins for sheer drama though.

  3. Thank you for introducing me to Mind Your Bonce. I’m loving their hats.
    My suggestions for some royals:

    Catherine

    Sophie

    Eugenie

    Maxima
