  1. Congratulations to Tessy de Nassau. Lovely news!

    I love the Belgian Royals’ card where they’re all in color sweaters.

    I agree with mittenmary about the Bhutanese Royals. Very handsome family!

    – I love the sculpted swirl crown felt berets by Canadian milliner Kelly Dunlap for Autumn Phillips.
    – the woven raffia Breton with black braid binding and back bows by Australian brand Jettah & Till is wonderful. It’s just so different from what we normally see. I can imagine this would look great on Queen Maxima.
    – I could see Princess Benedikte in the pale straw halo hat with blue lace pearl-centered flowers and burnt feathers by Australian milliner Irene Moore
    – I love the color and design on the red felt angular crown by British milliner Kerry Kernan. This design and clor would look incredible on teh Duchess of Cambridge.
    – The chocolate felt brimmed hat with sculpted crown, vintage crystals and silver hatband by US milliner Laura Del Villaggio is ruggedly chic. Again, for the Duchess of Cambridge, or CP Victoria, or Autumn Phillips.

  2. I don’t think I thanked you for the New Hat post, HatQueen! That brought fun into some gray stay-at-home days. Now I’m going to have to keep going: I like the Kristin Silverman cloche for Queen Mathilde. She’s worn at least one cloche well, and I think she’d appreciate the unexpected colors, the eye-catching ribbon trim, and the pouf.

    In keeping with the weather, my other favorites also look cozy: Kelly Dunlap’s sculptural purple berets and the marbled-looking hat (fedora?) by Yolanda Torres.

    Could the Bhutanese be any more beautiful?

    • Agree with you, mittenmary, about the cloche for Mathilde. It’s a good shape for her.

      The Bhutanese RF is indeed remarkable. Am always struck by how attractive they are when I see a photo.
