This Week’s Extras

Last Sunday, the Swedish royal family donned warm winter hats to unveil the statue of King Carl XIV Johan (the first Bernadotte King of Sweden) in its new location on the Slottsbacken “Castle Slope” in Stockholm

The following new millinery designs caught my eye this week:
Garnet felt sidesweep with floral ruffles and curling quills from British milliner Bundle McLaren
Navy fur felt cloche with beautifully raised brim from Czech milliner Jolanta Kotabova
Luxe black cherry beaver felt fedora with silver silk hatband from Danish brand Hornskov Copenhagan
A very festively trimmed electric blue veiled button percher from Rachel Trevor Morgan
Dark green fedora with stunning navy and gold brocade hatband from Philip Treacy
Star trimmed red bandeau from British milliner Harvy Santos
Mesmerizing unraveling straw top hat from the insanely creative mind of British milliner Stephen Jones
Scarlet wide-brimmed fedora from Belgian milliner Fabienne Delvigne
And this floral helmet, made by Philip Treacy for a nature exhibit at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Glorious!

Lovely holiday greeting portraits from the royal families of Jordan, The Netherlands, Belgium and Greece




And to wrap up this week, charming video greetings from Haga Palace and Amalienborg Palace

  1. Wishing you that decked-out RTM percher, or perhaps something more classic, for Christmas, HatQueen. Many thanks from me, too, for this delightful blog.

    Best to all!

  2. The Stephen Jones hat is brilliant! Very interesting!

    I adore the Harvy Santos star bandeau. Perfect for New Years Eve.

    Thanks for all your hard work Hat Queen. Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and I can’t wait to see what incredible creations we’ll enjoy in 2019!

    • I agree with you Shanon! Thank you HatQueen for all your hard work. I think 2019 will give us some surprises. In the BRF there will be a christening of Baby Sussex, Trooping the Color and Ascor to look forward to. Other royal families will have National Day celebrations and there will be various royal visiting. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!
