  1. 1. Great selection of “This Week’s Extras” HQ! Shanon’s comments (and additional selections) are always entertaining.
    2. What caught my eye was Anne’s living room. Very busy with a “lived in” atmosphere. After a weekend of watching golf and football, I think I’ll spend some time de-cluttering our living spaces.
    3. I looked up -39C . . .that’s about the same in F! The coldest I’ve experienced is -25F, which was a bit nippy as I recall. I’ll reiterate what Wies said; stay warm and safe everyone.
    PS HQ, thanks for the Aussie Tour posts. They bring back great memories of our 2001 trip to Sydney. We got to see the 2000 Summer Olympics Village along with so many typical touristy places, including days at Bondi Beach and Manly Beach.

    • I guess I should explain -39 C Jimbo. That’s not with the wind chill. It’s -50 C with that. You can imagine how still everything is. Opening the door to the outside literally takes your breath away.

      I agree about Anne’s living room. I actually zoomed in to check out the tchotchkes! I wonder what kind of snacks they ate? Are Calcutta Cup snacks similar or different than Super Bowl snacks?

  2. Thank you Shanon, for attributing my pillbox to Princess Marie! And thank you, Hat Queen, for including it in your selection!
    -39 C is a bit stiff, but we’re having frost and snow here for the first time in many winters and they make my house and my little Dutch town look like something out of a story book.

    Stay warm and safe everyone!

  3. How fun to see Princess Anne watching tv. That’s a great photo!

    – Wow! I love the grey felt cloche with fantastic laser cut freeform hatband by Japanese milliner Yumiko Kuroiwa. This would look incredible on Princess Kako or Princess Mako.
    – CP Mary would look great in the black fedora with silk orchid trim by Russian milliner Maria Koneva. That is a striking hat!
    – I love the black vintage printed silk covered button with trio of gold feathers by British milliner Kerry Kernan for Princess Beatrice.
    – Princess Anne would look great in the brown felt visored cap from Dutch brand Bronte Amsterdam.
    – I love the color variant in the straw hat with wide quills by German milliner Ulrike Strelow. This would be a show stopper at Ascot on the Countess of Wessex.
    – I also love this oxblood cloche with graphic striped bow by Australian milliner Lauren Ritchie for Princess Kako or Princess Mako. It’s a super cute hat!
    – I think the yellow fish leather button percher with grey fish leather flowers by Belgian brand Cap’a di Carina would look great on HGD Stephanie
    – I think Princess Eugenie would look great in the celery green wool hand beaded beret by British milliner Rachel Trevor Morgan.
    – I like the pale turquoise felt split crown hat with fringed tweed hatband by Australian milliner Catherine Kelly. It would look incredible on Princess Madeleine.
    – I love Wies’ retro pillbox in inky midnight blue felt with red crown and bow. This would look great on Queen Mathilde.
    – Such a pretty blush tulle brimmed boater with crin bow by Australian milliner Sophie Allport. I would like to see Zara Tindall in this. It’s so delicate and funky and would be an interesting departure for her.
    – Princess Haya for the white straw wide brimmed hat with black brim binding, leaves and jinsin loops by UK brand Rebecca Couture Millinery. That is a gorgeous hat!

    Some other hats that caught my eye this week:

    I love this poppy boater by Justine Bradley-Hill. This would look amazing on Autumn Phillips.

    Gold sinaway by Mind Your Bonce would be so chic on Beatrice Borromeo.

    Jolana Kotabova’s hat is so cozy and chic. I love the color and would love to see this on Princess Marie.

    JBH millinery’s veiled hat would look so chic on Lady Amelia Windsor

    It’s currently -39C where I am, so the spring flowers and beautiful colors in this hat by Millinery by Mel make me smile.https://www.instagram.com/p/CK4y4j5hwyP/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
