This Week’s Extras

Lady Kitty Spencer attended the Berlin premiere of VIVID Grand Show in a black Philip Treacy hat with wide, swirling crin brim last weekend. The theatrical/circus spectacular (see a trailer here) features astounding headpieces, all made by Philip Treacy.

Very fun announcement from Kensington Palace, introducing the second day of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Australian tour with a nod to the hats they were gifted with during their official welcome.

The following new millinery designs caught my eye this week:

How happy is this bandeau of multi-coloured pompoms from British brand Emily London
Lovely, classic shape & scheme on this navy straw saucer with cream crin
from Brisbane milliner Meg Rafter
Unusual black pillbox with fuchsia ring trim by Dutch milliner Marianne Jongkind (on exhibition in Switzerland)
Love the felt flowers on this grey felt brimless design by Japanese milliner Kaori Kaido
Beautiful feather work on these bland and blue percher hats by British milliner Vivien Sheriff
Textured black straw calot with straw leaf overlay by French milliner Anthony Peto
More leaves in this bandeau in red leather and suede by Brisbane milliner Marla Carmeta
Chic navy square-crowned fedora variation with slim orange leather hatband from Czech milliner Jolana Kotabova
Exquisite blue jin sin ringed headpiece with hand cut feathers from Australian brand Millinery Jill
And when you think you’ve seen everything possible in millinery design… a creative millinery mind such as British milliner Harvy Santos comes up with something like this.


 Royal Hats

Interesting interview with British royal photographer extraordinaire, Chris Jackson (Tatler)

Lovely photo of the Iranian royal family taken on the occasion of Empress Farah’s 80th birthday

Lovely new portrait of Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel and their sweet children

The Duke of York shared these snaps of the STUNNING floral arrangements in Windsor Castle for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding reception last weekend

Many of you have likely already seen this candid shot, shared by Princess Eugenie, but it’s too sweet not to share. Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. Lovely portrait of CP Victoria and family. She looks so sharp in that fedora in the photos from Jordan, which makes me wonder why she favors headpieces over hats.

    As always, HatQueen’s roundup of new designs makes me want to place them on royal heads. I like Kaori Kaido‘s grey for Princess Tsuguko and the fun pompom bandeau for Lady Louise.

  2. Princess Hisako and Princess Ayako visited Ise Shrine to report Ayako’s marriage to the Imperial family’s ancestral deity, Amaterasu on October 18th

  3. Princess Hisako visited Fukui Prefecture for the closing ceremony of the 18th National Sports Festival for Disabled People on October 14-15

  4. Princess Akiko received an honorary doctorate from Kokushikan University in Setagaya, Tokyo on October 17th

  5. Princess Yoko attended the 20th Hokuriku Welfare Golf Tournament on October 17-18:

  6. From October 14 to 17, Sayako Kuroda (daughter of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko) attended Kanname-sai at Ise Grand Shine in Mie Prefecture. Kanname-sai is the most important ritual of the year; rice grown by the Emperor is offered and dedicated to Amaterasu.

  7. Princess Akiko attended Kyoto Municipal Government’s 120th anniversary ceremony on October 15th
