Hat Renovation Teaser

During the summer, British milliner Amy Morris-Adams shared a photo of several vintage hats she was working on updating, mending and retrimming. I really appreciated her approach to this, sewing each hat’s original labels back inside after the work was done.

Interestingly, Amy offered Royal Hats a teaser not only that these hats belonged to Princess Anne, but that we should keep our eyes open for them, soon. Any guesses which hats from Princess Anne’s wardrobe these might be?!

  1. Hmmm…to guess I would say Princess Anne needs a hat revamped for Remembrance Day as I can’t think of any other socially distanced Royal event she would attend requiring a hat. So I suggest this one for Remembrance Day in Belgium 2017:

    Or maybe she’s just taking this time to revamp her hats for 2021. 🙂

  2. Any requests you say…?!

    • Well… we’ll certainly recognize these if they are the ones!

      I’m wondering about these two- the navy straw dates back to the mid 1990s (or older!) and the black John Boyd homberg dates back to at least 1969

      • Or maybe this one is the Otto Lucas?!

      • These were the first two that came to my mind, although it’s interesting (assuming the labels in the post are for Anne’s hats) why the John Boyd hat wouldn’t be taken to their atelier, but maybe it’s just easier to get them all repaired by the same person (and perhaps thrifty Anne got a discount for bulk repairs haha). Curious to see what shows up and when!

  3. Not royal hats, but while you’re in Amy’s Insta feed, be sure to scroll down a few entries and take a look at those exquisitely woven Panama hats from Ecuador!

  4. I’ll admit that I’m a little confused, HQ. The link you provided takes us to Anne’s green inventory, so are the revamped hats in question all green?
    My first guess would be John Boyd’s peacock feather painted hat. When we see them in the future, I really hope they’re on Anne’s head, and not in a display case.
