  1. Not a fan of PEugenie’s headband color, but she looks GREAT that soon after having a c-section! Bless her!

    I like so many of the hats you’ve shown, HQ! Thanks!

  2. I thought of you Hat Queen when the photos came out of Princess Eugenie wearing a bandeau. What a lovely color! Just gorgeous photos of the Brooksbank family. I quite like Master August’s name!

    Gorgeous photos of HGD Stephanie and Princess Leonore. Happy Birthday!

    – Oh the sunny yellow hat with wide, raw-edged Dior brim by Australian milliner Marilyn Van Den Berg is lovely! What a bright pop of color for those of us in the throes of winter. This could be a fun Ascot hat on Lady Snowdon.
    – Love the pale blue wool beret by French brand Katoushti. What gorgeous detail. This would look so pretty on Princess Beatrice or Lady Louise.
    – Love the periwinkle straw hugger bumper with freeform bow by Australian milliner Jill Humphries. Maybe Princess Sofia?
    – Princess Eugenie for the graphic layered stripe teardrop percher with ivory silk shantung bow by British milliner Kerry Kernan. That is a wow hat!
    – Duchess of Cambridge for the sky blue straw saucer brim hat with large feather flower by British milliner Justine Bradley-Hill. Simnply gorgeous!
    – Prince Nikolai or Prince Felix for the deep mulberry felt feldora with black silk paisley hatband by Danish brand Hornskov København
    – Countess of Wessex for the blush sisal button percher with sisal and silk abaca folded ruffle by British brand Camilla Rose Millinery.
    – I saw the orange draped felt crown hat by Australian milliner Melanie Atherinos and fell in love. The scale would be great on HGD Stephanie, but perhaps a different color for her (royal blue?). The color and style would also look great on Princess Marie (as would the merlot and feather one). I also like the merlot for the Duchess of Cambridge. She would look dynamite in that color.
    – I quite like the wrapped tan turban with statement flourish by German milliner Ulrike Strelow. Queen Maxima would look great in this!

    two more hats that caught my eye:

    Origami Hats
    Princess Hisako

    Merve Bayindir Millinery
    Princess Ingried
