Interesting review, in English, of the first year of the Heiwa era. The pace is a little slow but the look into the Imperial ceremonies is detailed and fascinating.

  1. Absolutely loved the Reiwa video in English! Thank you so much for posting the link. Nobody does ceremony better than the Japanese!

  2. Good to see Lady Louise and her father wearing sensible headgear while riding – but do my eyes deceive me, or is the young lady also wearing a bulletproof vest? I sincerely hope I am mistaken. Having people take photos of you every time you stir out of doors is probably stressful enough without worrying about people taking potshots at you as well.

  3. I don’t know if this was covered here previously, but there were multiple black lace mantillas worn June 17 at the funeral of Elizabeth-Ann de Massey, first cousin of Prince Albert II of Monaco. The first photo shows (from left to right) Caroline, Charlene, and Elizabeth’s daughter Melanie in mantillas, while the second photo shows Caroline’s daughter Alexandra of Hanover in a mantilla.

    Hope you’re recovering HatQueen after all those hats from home were shared! While I’m sad we didn’t get a traditional Hat Christmas this year, I’m glad people remained in the spirit and weren’t afraid to show off last week despite all the shutdowns and quarantines.

  4. – Princess Charlene would look great in the grass green straw brimmed newsboy cap by Gallia e Peter. The color and slight angle on this hat are gorgeous.
    – Princess Beatrice for the angular black and white straw hat with dramatic cartwheel brim by Chris Mullane
    – I could see Queen Maxima in the show-stopper pink straw oversize Breton hat rimmed in giant pink silk roses by Edwina Ibbotsen
    – I just love the red straw statement hat with black and white striped hatband by Carol Kennelly. Maybe Zenouska Mowatt?
    – Queen Margrethe for the aqua, chartreuse and ivory straw mushroom brimmed hat with lilies by French milliner Sylvia Martinez
    – what a beautiful bucket hat by Millinery By Mel. Definitely the Countess of Wessex for this hat.
    – Zara Tindall would look great in the pink and purple diamond newsgirl cap by Truly Carmichael
    – Princess Anne for the chic panama straw fedora with silk scarf hatband by John Boyd Hats
    – I love the Carol Kennelly fuchsia straw slice picture hat trimmed with red, orange and pink handmade poppies. I could see Princess Haya or the Countess of Wessex wear this at Ascot.

    I love all the family photos. Little Prince Charles is such a sweetie, and Prince Alexander and Prince Gabriel are adorable.
