  1. I am swooning over Anna Stefanou’s black and white felt that won second place in the Feltmaker’s Design Award. And I’m off to google what could had topped it for first place!

  2. – The copper straw wide brimmed boater by Brea Moreland is very funky. I could see Princess Beatrice in this.
    – Carol Kennelly has been doing such amazing work. Her jewelled headpieces have been spectacular and this red, asymmetrical hat with graphic black and white striped hatband is just gorgeous! This is a bold hat and I could see it on either Queen Mathilde or Queen Maxima.
    – I’m intrigued by the pink silk bandeau with ruffles of pink and latte silk by Rachel Henry. I would love to see it on an actual person as I suspect a fabulous hairstyle would complement it. Maybe CP Mette-Marit?
    – the teardrop percher covered in pink feathers with trailing flower feather vine by Jill Humphries would look so great on Zara Tindall.
    – I love the bandeau by Ashleigh Myles. The shape, color and texture is fantastic and would look great on either of the York Princesses.
    – The trilby by Victoria Carson is wonderful. I think it looks more green or blue than black. Whatever color it is, it looks great. I love to see this on Princess Charlene.
    – The Carla Murley is spectacular. I can see either Princess Haya or the Countess of Wessex wear this.

    Happy Birthday Princess Mette-Marit!

  3. Such beautiful new designs! The Gillys Millinery creation is perfect with the dress, coordinating without falling into the dreaded “matchy” look. Since Queen Margrethe has worn Mathilde Førster‘s designs, I’m imagining the trilby for her. And I share HatQueen’s appreciation of the knotted texture of Sally Casewell‘s fedora. And I’ll take the RTM picture hat (and an occasion to wear it!), please and thank you.

  4. Lovely new hats especially the teardrop percher covered in pink feathers by Jill Humphries. Very spring-like and has such exuberant movement! Also many happy returns of the day to HRH Crown Princess Mette-Merit on her 47th birthday!
