  1. Don’t know whether anyone will see this so late in the week, but, with HQ’s permission, I’d like to discuss a non-Royal hat from the American inauguration. Poet Amanda Gorman’s ensemble, featuring a Prada bandeau, was as uplifting as her poem:

    So I wondered:
    1. Has anyone ever seen a bandeau worn like this, almost like a tiara?
    2. Does anyone remember any royal, even Princess Margaret or Princess Anne in their ‘60s bouffant updo glory, wearing a hat so high in her head?

  2. Princess Nina of Greece also shared this view of her civil wedding ensemble- head to toe Chanel

  3. I came across this fascinating article on a new Princess – Princess Sarah of Sierra Leone. The final photo of her wearing a headpiece is magnificent.

    – I love the color of the cognac leather button beret percher Rachel Dunn. This would look so cool on Zara Tindall at a horse event.
    – Moody is a great word to describe this fedora by Russian milliner By Marina Koneva. It almost looks like a dark, rich green color instead o(what I assume) is black. This would look fantastic on the Duchess of Cambridge.
    – Mike Tindall for the black and white hound’s tooth wool newsboy cap by German milliner Ulrike Strelow.
    – I can see CP Victoria in the latte leather percher with flowers and curling quills by Australian brand Ebbella Millinery.
    – I noticed the vibrant blue felt hat with aubergine silk flowers and spectacular feathers by London-based milliner Merver Bayindir earlier this week. It’s quite a fabulous hat and would look pretty on Princess Beatrice.
    – The Countess of Wessex for the ivory saucer rimmed in black crin with satin and velvet flower vine by American milliner Marie Galvin.
