This Week’s Extras

Back on September 26th , Princess Benedikte opened an exhibition by sculptor Helen Schou at Randers Art Museum⁣⁣. She wore a blue woven raffia hat embellished with a looped bow beneath the upswept brim.

The following new millinery designs caught my eye this week:
Wonderfully quirky blue straw bandeau trimmed with hand rolled straw pencils by UK brand Warrillow Studio

As per Luxembourg royal tradition, a new rose was christened on Tuesday in honor of Prince Charles. The Hereditary Duke and Duchess also gave an interview on their experiences with parenthood so far.
Snippets from a press conference on Monday with Delphine Boel, who, based on DNA testing, has won the right to use her father’s last name and title of Princess of Belgium. It’s a sad story all around that could have had such a different (healthier, more positive for all) outcome.

We end this week with Prince William’s tour of Bug-ingham Palace. So sweet!

  1. I love the grey straw cartwheel brimmed hat and tiered black felt pyramid hat.
    What a saga for Princess Delphine. Oh my.

    Princess Hisako opened a photo exhibition on October 6

  2. I liked the black bandeau as well, but not sold on the tassel. Love the grey cartwheel, and really like the red fedora, which would look wonderful on Duchess of Cambridge. This hat would also look good on me, but alas, it’s not in my cards these days !

  3. Little Prince Charles is such a cutie! What wonderful, joyous photos of him and his parents.

    I agree with your assessments on the new Princess Delphine. The news literally dropped my jaw this week. I feel sad that she had to endure this, but her remarks are so positive and mature. I wish her all the best as she moves forward.

    The tour of Bug-ingham Palace was lovely. William’s interaction with the kids was wonderful. So patient and encouraging. I was really proud of his EarthShot prize announcement. It’s an incredible undertaking and one I’m certain a lot of people will rise to. I look forward to watching the submissions.

    – Countess of Wessex would look so great in the grey straw cartwheel brimmed hat with statement flower by Czech milliner Jolana Kotabova. I love the color and shape.
    – The Belle Folie Lifestyle hat is lots of fun. It would be spectacular at Ascot for Princess Beatrice.

  4. The black bandeau with scrolls and flowers is the best hat I’ve seen in a very long time. It’s baroque coloring, well balanced design with unusual details blows staid, same old/same old hats away. I’d love to see Queen Máxima wear this hat. Or Duchess of Cambridge, who, while always impeccably attired, I’d love to see take more chances with her gorgeous wardrobe.
