  1. That yellow bandeau with the poppy Justine by Bradley-Hill is such fun. The stylized tulip trims Kerry Kernan‘s wave hat perfectly. And Jolana Kotabova does it again! Beautiful texture and shimmer to that pillbox, and dove grey is such a versatile spring neutral.

    Great bonus content for Easter, HQ!

    I thought some might enjoy this feature about a hat-wearer who has been dressing up for online church. https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/2021/03/31/sunday-virtual-church-outfit/ Such dedication! Her hat silhouettes are very much like Camilla’s — if only Camilla would embrace these saturated colors!

    • I saw that article in The Washington Post as well on Dr Wimberly. Thanks for sharing it! She looks sensational! My favorite is the navy and white one with the fabulous brooch at the front. The aqua one after it reminds me of a red one Queen Maxima wore. Dr Wimberly definitely needs to be at Royal Ascot with those hats. I love her looks so much and think she’s brilliant for dressing up for online church. Bless her!

      – Princess Beatrice wore a similar style to the Sarah Cant hat years ago in blue, and I always loved it. Another Beatrice (Borromeo) would also look lovely in this hat with the sunrise-inspired pink.
      – The Countess of Wessex would look great in the periwinkle straw waved design with statement ombre tulip by British milliner Kerry Kernan
      – I’d love to see Lady Louise at Ascot this year wearing the golden yellow straw bandeau with oversize poppy bloom by British milliner Justine Bradley-Hill.
      – I really love the classic wide-brimmed natural straw hats by American milliner Behida Dolić. They would look great on Princess Charlene and Princess Gabriella.
      – The colors are sensational on the saffron, fuchsia and cream draped halo bandeau with soaring bunny ears by Irish brand Wendy Louise Designs. That is a fun hat!
      – Absolutely love the charming blue straw boater with the loveliest silk organza ruffle flowers by British milliner Marissa Groom. This would look lovely on the Countess of Wessex or Zara Tindall (have we seen a boater on Zara before?).
