  1. Hat Queen, I enjoyed the 2 videos today even more than the featured hats. HM is absolutely correct about the vaccination – quick and painless; I hope she didn’t have any adverse reaction afterward, as I did.
    I had to LOL when Harry’s tea cart took a tumble on the bus. “Clean it up, Harry!” Ha Ha. Today’s post is a great way to start the new week.
    Next Monday is Commonwealth Day – will Westminster Abbey be quiet?

    • Congratulations Jimbo on getting the vaccine! I hope you are feeling better now.

      As per Commonwealth Day, I read there’s a speech the day before, and a virtual event on March 8. No one will be at Westminster Abbey 😦

  2. CP Victoria looks lovely!

    – The details on the Lia Ioannou bandeau are stunning! I love the luxuriousness of the material. How lovely would this be on Lady Louise.
    – I love the stunning beaded red kokoshnik headpiece by Russian milliner Lyubov Mikhaleva
    – Zara Tindall for the black parasisal beret percher with fern lush floral trim by Australian brand Ebbella Millinery
    – I would love to see the Countess of Wessex in the deep amaranth pink straw bergère hat trimmed with spectacular ombre feathers by Australian milliner Belinda Osborne
    – Queen Mathilde for the fuchsia felt hat with veil by Australian milliner Melanie Atherinos. Great movement on it!
    – Awon Golding has such talent! I love the black and white checked straw wide Dior brim for CP Mary. The pink hat with roses in the slideshow is stunning as well. How faulous would that be for Ascot on Princess Haya or the Countess of Wessex?

    • I have to once again commend you on your choices, Shanon! Especially love the bandeau for Lady Louise and the fuchsia felt for Queen Mathilde. Awon Golding’s pink rose hat would be spectacular at ascot for Sophie or Haya. I’d also like to see Monica Gamberale‘s percher for black and white dress code of the opening of Swedish Parliament, but for which Royal? I’m going with CP Victoria.
