  1. I was happy to see you added the filigree headpiece by Jill Humphries. It’s a wonderful piece and, as she indicates, is for a ponytail. How clever! I think Beatrice Borromeo could look quite chic in this.

    It’s starting to look like fedora season in many parts of the world and the latest selections are dazzling. I hope to see many on Royal heads soon.

  2. Prince Sverre Magnus was confirmed on Saturday, Sept 5 at Asker Church in Oslo. Women in the Norwegian royal family all wore traditional folk bunads.

  3. Usually I don’t really like fedoras, but the navy fedora of peach bloom felt, with the burgundy velvet ribbon hanging down the back really caught my attention! I do like it!

    Yes, the black straw percher with the orchid is for Zara, as well as the diamond-print beret (or is it really a teardrop?).

    Look at the instagram page of the filigree headpiece in braided straw–the is a white bandeau that looks like it is made the same way, same materials; I like it better!

  4. Hello Hat Queen,
    What a great job you always do, finding us other hats to discover in your list of hats…

    The Martinez black straw percher with an ombré orchid is delightful with its combo of shape/style. I think Zara could pull that off easily and would stand out with her blonde hair.

    The Osborne ombré yellow and turquoise is spectacular. I wonder who would best carry that off? Any ideas?

    The Willis scarlet bandeau would be lovely with Catherine’s dark tresses pulled up in a gorgeous up-do as she can do.

    The Bronté magenta mushroom hat is surprisingly satisfying… I think because of the translucent quality of the brim.

    The Magee silver and gold hand woven perchers are a must-wear by the Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

    And the colorful Fowler “unbroken chain” is beautiful and unique… such an American flavor to it that it would be great to see at the Kentucky Derby next year when it’s open for spectators again. Can’t picture a royal in it. Maybe you can?

    Thank you for all your work giving us such visual hat treats.
