We end the week with the Duchess of Cornwall, who was aided at a Battersea kennel charity by her Jack Russel terrier Beth, who is an alumna of the organization. I believe a sausage was also involved.

  1. Thank you Hat Queen for featuring my animal print felt & leather fedora. Your blog helps keeping my spirits up: we have just entered another severe lockdown here in the Netherlands, for five weeks, so it is going to be a very quiet Christmas. I sometimes have difficulty not feeling downhearted when I see the empty streets and closed shops instead of the usual Christmas hustle and bustle.

    Rescue dog Beth is a real treat!

  2. Wow, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo are a lovely couple. Her hatband is great. I like the burgundy against the green jacket.

    Happy Birthday Empress Masako! She looks so lovely!

    Oh man, Prince Charles of Luxembourg is so cute! His parents always look so delighted. What a lovely family.

    Love the video of Camilla and the dog. It was so charming.

    – Gorgeous black felt wide-brimmed hat with white stitched binding & hatband by Oktopus. Princess Beatrice would look great in this.
    – Love the luminescent gold straw fedora by Catherine Kelly. This would be fun on Queen Maxima.
    – Ooooh. Princess Sofia of Sweden would look dynamite in the magenta silk veiled cocktail hat with bow by Dillon Wallwork
    – CP Mary would look great in the classic navy square-crown cloche by Clothilde Toussaint
    – Cloche’s are making a comback and I’m here for it. Love the blush felt cloche with pleated brim and silk hatband by Temperli. Beatrice Borromeo?
    – I saw Wies’ leopard melusine felt trilby earlier this week and love it. So many Royals would look incredible in it. Queen Maxima, Queen Mathilde, Zara Tindall, Autumn Phillips. That hat is stunningly chic!
    – Princess Hisako would look lovely in the cerise felt button percher with sparkling beads and double back bows from Rachel Trevor Morgan
    – What a delicate beauty of a straw sideweep saucer by Jennifer Wrynne. That would look so pretty at Royal Ascot on the Countess of Wessex.
    – Love the stunning black and white statement hat with fuchsia feather trim by Amelda Millinery. Definitely Zara Tindall.
