Princess Beatrice Honors National Scouts

Princess Beatrice attended attended the National Scout Service & Parade at Windsor Castle yesterday morning. The princess, who does not conduct many engagements, looked very smart in a textured navy and natural straw saucer hat trimmed with cream twists on top and below the hat’s brim. I particularly liked the hat’s pairing with Beatrice’s navy dress and navy silk ribbon tied low ponytail – streamlined pieces that allowed the hat to be a focal point.

Designer: Jane Taylor. It is the Bianca from SS 2018
Previously Worn: This hat is new
This is one of my favourite outfits on Princess Beatrice in recent memory – what do you think of her first Jane Taylor hat?

  1. I was looking through the website and saw this hat. Liked it a lot. Thought Sophie would choose to wear this for ascot . Wish there were more detailed photos of this hat. Princess Beatrice looks really elegant here.

  2. I agree with Jake that it’s hard to have a good look with these small photos, but as far as I can tell, she looks great all round. The hairstyle goes well with this hat, and the look suits her and also is appropriate for the occasion. Thank you for including the photo of the hat itself so we can see the detail of the design.

  3. At first I thought this was a style already worn by Sophie, Countess of Wessex, but I guess Jane Taylor’s SS2018 collection has a lot of similar pieces, and for once I got confused haha. Overall it looks like a good ensemble, but the hat seems to sit a little high, although I’ll ultimately reserve judgment for when there are better photos of her wearing this hat.

  4. Everything looks pretty good here – good hat hair from Beatrice and a really good hat. I’m nagged by the dress hem looking wonky but that may be an optical illusion (breeze, etc), or perhaps the belt is altering the way the dress falls. Never mind, I’m sure the Scouts wouldn’t have noticed or been bothered. Hopefully, Beatrice will keep this lovely, ‘sleek’ look.

  5. This is lovely! What a surprise! My initial assumption was Princess Beatrix (even though it’s clearly labeled correctly), so when I saw the first picture, my first reaction was why are the Yorks in the Netherlands. Anyway, this is a great hat, and I like the pairing with the dress. I’m also really glad her hair is pulled back. The ponytail seems like a great intermediate between flapping down locks (which so frequently don’t look good with nice hats) and a fancy updo which might have been too formal and/or labor intensive for this event. Wonderful.
