Princess Tsuguko wore a chic green hat with vibrant feathered trim on February 27 to attend a UN Youth Forum in Tokyo.

  1. Here’s a better look at Princess Hisako’s velvet beret

  2. My favorites are the ombre ribbon beret by Louise Pocock and Mint hat by Sarah Ross.
    Lovely hats from the Takamado princesses. There’s a feather on Hisako’s beret?

  3. I agree with everyone about the fabulous hats worn by the Takamodo Princesses. I love the different styles and colors. I really can’t wait until the Tokyo Olympics when (I expect) we’ll get to see all the Japanese Royals in full force.

    – LOVE the orange felt fedora by British milliner Dillon Wallwork. This would look fabulous on the Queen of Orange, Maxima!
    – Great designs by Jill Humphries. I would love to see the bumper on the Duchess of Cambridge and the percher on Zara Tindall
    – What a unique design on the red cloche shape with high upturned brim by Estonian milliner Emma-Elfriide Kübarad. Princess Tsuguko would look great in this.
    – I love the 1940’s design on the navy trilby with avocado hatband by British brand Little Sister Millinery. This would look so chic on Princess Marie, Princess Sofia, Zara Tindall, Princess Charlene, or Princess Hisako.

  4. I can always rely on Hisako and Tsuguko to bring out the good hats! The lavender and purple jacquard hat is especially delightful.

    Happy International Women’s Day to all!

  5. Hooray indeed! And hooray to every other hat wearer too: let’s keep our heads up high and wear a hat!
    Thank you for featuring m’y headpiece HatQueen. I love the beret percher covered in folded petersham ribbon by Louise Pocock. Such great colour shading and technique.
    Happy International Women’s Day!

  6. Hooray for the Takamodo family, for keeping up with hat wearing in the face of general hatlessness amongst the royals! Three very different hats, too. I like Princess Tsuguko’s green hat with feathers.
