This Week’s Extras

Last  Monday, Queen Silvia donned local Lovö dress, including a lace trimmed cap, to host the 20th annual “Pensioners Day” at Drottningholm Palace

The Danish monarchy shared several wonderful personal photos taken during the Crown Princely family’s recent trip to the Faroe Islands including this shot, taken by Crown Princess Mary, which shows the beautiful embroidery on Princess Isabella and Princess Josephine’s bonnets.

Princess Tessy looked fantastic in a faux jeweled headpiece yesterday while attending the second day of African fashion week in Toronto

Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko attended a memorial service for victims of the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake yesterday in Tokyo. Princess Kiko repeated a black pillbox hat with small bow (Sankei)

Stephen Jones shared this amazing story yesterday about Aretha Franklin’s famous hat by Luke Song (the one she wore to President Obama’s inauguration)

The following new millinery designs caught my eye this week:

Midnight blue silk bumper hat with stunning statement feathers from British brand Bundle McLaren
Love the shape and lines of this blush straw floral trimmed hat from Australian milliner Meg Rafter
Interesting shape on this blue and purple felt and straw design from Dutch milliner Myra van de Korput
Crimson silk bandeau with poppies and tulle veil by Australian milliner Louise MacDonald
Beautiful sheen on this green straw bow trimmed percher from Czech milliner Jolanta Kotabova
Black open weave, wide brimmed hat with red abaca flying bow from Aussie brand Millinery By Mel
Fascinating texture in this purple braided straw design by Dutch milliner Eugenie van Oirschot
Fuchsia straw teardrop percher with bow and veil from Madrid-based milliner Biliana Borissova
Headpiece of iridescent pansies with Swarovski crystal centers from Aussie brand Love Lotus Millinery
Dramatic black straw halo hat with hand stitched sequin & pearl trim from Australian Hats by Zarbella

 

 Royal Hats

Countess Camilla of Rosenborg married Ivan Ottesen in Lyngby last Sunday. Countess Camilla, who has four children from her first marriage, is the daughter of the late Count Christian of Rosenborg (he was a first cousin of Queen Margrethe). The marriage took place at Lyngby Church, the burial place of Camilla’s parents.

In other wedding themed news… the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding attire will go on display at Windsor Castle and Holyrood Palace this fall and it’s great to already see, via photos, greater detail of the tiara, dress and veil.

New portraits of Prince Nicolai released by the Danish monarchy on the occasion of his 19th birthday and the most adorable snaps of Prince Gabriel shared by the Swedish monarchy for his first birthday

Also off the cuteness scale were Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella yesterday in Monagasque traditional dress yesterday at Monaco’s annual picnic

Queen Sonja’s childhood home has been relocated, restored and opened as a museum earlier this week. She and King Harald used the opening as an opportunity to recreate one of their engagement photos, just in time for their 50th wedding anniversary

    • Skip to ~7:45 for Princess Yoko. Could be the same hat as May 20th? I wish the media covered the Mikasa and Takamado princesses more.

  1. Princess Hisako attended the Prince Takamado Cup Nippon Budokan Calligraphy Exhibition On August 26th

    Some interesting, new-to-me hats there.

    • 2017’s black hat is lovely. I think the 2016 green hat was worn recently in July at the reopening of the J-Village national football training center in Fukushima. The grey with polka dots looks to be the hat Princess Hisako wore to the 2018 Annual Red Cross Meeting in May.

  2. Wow, HatQueen, all those posts this week AND an especially rich Extras. I’ve enjoyed every word and image, and, as always, I thank you!

    Wonderful story by Stephen Jones and Aretha. In turn, she reminds ME how proud I am to be American.

    Since we have just discussed Queen Maxima in the previous post, the two hats by Dutch milliners stood out to me. Both would be great choices for her, different from her signature slice hats, but very much her look.
