  1. Great hat on Lady Gabrielle!

    Congratulations to Leah Behn. The write up her mother did with tributes to her dad was wonderful.

    – Zara Tindall for the white leather hugger percher studded flowers by Jill Humphries
    – Rose Cherie’s raspberry straw bergère hat reminds me of the pink hat worn by the Countess of Wessex at Royal Ascot in 2017. She would also look great in this one.
    – Very interesting red acrylic brimmed boater with metallic blooms by Australian brand Jettah & Till Design Millinery. I wonder if that would be heavy or not? I could see Zara Tindall in this, or one of the York sisters.
    – The Maline purple velour felt is stunning! I love the colorful explosion of feathers.The purple reminds me of the Duchess of Cambridge’s Christmas hat in 2011. This would look great on her, or Autumn Phillips.

    This Carol Kennelly hat caught my eye this week. Utterly beautiful! I could see the Duchess of Cambridge or PCP Mary in this:

  2. Lovely pictures of Leah Behn. Those Norwegian bunads are so beautiful! And extremely flattering.
    I like the red acrylic boater by Jettah & Till and the joyful colour combination of feathers of Malinepotsdam’s felt hat.

    Thank you for featuring my “Amazone” top hat in your weekly selection HatQueen.
    I wore it to the French wedding I went to last week. Later, the bride, whom I had never met before, said to me that when she entered the church she saw nothing and regcognised nobody, out of sheer nerves probably. (Getting married in corona times is a stressful business.) But when she turned to the audience to sign the register she saw my hat, then realised it must be me and that we had come all the way from the Netherlands to attend he wedding. I guess this justifies the hashtag I use: #standoutfromthecrowd !
