The Duchess of Sussex supported Save The Children UK and celebrated Archie’s first birthday by sharing a story.
On Friday’s 75th anniversary of VE Day, Queen Elizabeth shared another poignant address (she is the only head of state in the world to have served during WWII) along with her memories of VE Day celebrations, recorded in the 1970s. The Prince of Wales also read an extract from his grandfather’s diary.

And finally, we end this week with happy news- a son arrived this morning for Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie. Welcome Prince Charles!

  1. Thank you HatQueen for including my pink saucer hat in your weekly (and very enjoyable!) “Caught my eye” section.
    And thank you for sharing Queen Elisabeth’s speech and the recorded testimonies of the Queen and her father. Moving and very interesting.

  2. The Beverley Edmondson halo bandeau immediately reminded MrFitzroy of this recent brooch debut from HM…..perhaps she can swap out the hat on the next outing for the brooch!

  3. What a packed Post this was! Thank you Hat Queen!

    There was a new documentary about the Princess Royal. “Princess Anne: The Daughter Who Should Be Queen.” Lots of great hats show up! Here’s a link:

    I love Camilla’s entire outfit for the VE Day remembrance. The texture on the beret is lovely.

    – I love Wies Mauduit’s pink satin and lace hat. It would look lovely on Queen Mathilde.
    – I love the cheerful yellow mushroom brimmed hat with contrasting textured bow by Rachi Rach Hattery. We don’t often see the Countess of Wessex in yellow, so this would be lovely on her.
    – Gorgeous color on the emerald silk bandeau by Guibert Millinery. Maybe CP Mary.
    – Fantastic sculpted black felt turban with cherries by John Boyd Hats would look great on Sarah, Duchess of York.
    – I can see Zara Tindall in the lilac straw button percher with triple swirl by Marc Millinery.
    – The burgundy velvet teardrop percher with swirled twist by Jill Humphries would look wonderful on CP Mary.
    – I love Truly Carmichael’s layered navy and turquoise sinamay picture hat. It would look great on Camilla.

    Princess Athena is quite the photographer! Great photos of her brother on his birthday!

    Such a cute video of Archie!

    The Queen’s speech was lovely. She always get the tone right. Did anyone watch the program “The Queen at War” on PBS this past week? Great archival footage of the Royal Family during that time.

    What wonderful news for Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie! Thank you for sharing that happy news!

  4. New designs: how beautifully you’ve used lace in the brim, Wies! The John Boyd turban looks as though it could have been worn to the VE-Day celebrations — very retro. And with red and two shades of pink on fuchsia, the Beverley Edmondson bandeau is a candidate for the Unusual Color Scheme post.

    What a moving address by the Queen for the 75th anniversary. Love to see that little Archie is already a reader! And HGD Guillaume is such a thrilled new dad.

  5. the percher by Christine Waring puts me in mind of the hat which Queen (then Princess) Elizabeth II wore at Prince Charles’ christening. LOVE the navy & turquoise side sweep brim picture hat!

  6. I have never really cared for the percher style and quite frankly I am so over them. I absolutely love the Truly Carmichael turquoise and navy picture hat. That is my idea of a hat.
