Today’s royal carriage procession brought some wonderful hats. The Queen’s carriage was rounded out with John Warren and Peter Troughton, both who wore black silk top hats.
Lady Alice Manners was at the races again today in an exquisitely trimmed black silk calot heapiece with lace, beads and silk roses (with beaded centers!) by Laura Cathcart.
UPDATE: Thanks to reader Grazia who tweeted this photo of Lady Margarita Armstrong-Jones, also at the races today. She looks to be wearing a black textured beret based percher very similar to this Stephen Jones design owned by Princess Eugenie.
