  1. – I love the magenta bandeau by Australian milliner Wendy Diggles for Lady Louise. Such a pretty color!
    – I think the woven tutti fruitti straw boater by Scottish brand Scotch Bonnet Millinery would look lovely on Princess Alexandra of Kent. The colors are fabulous.
    – Mike Tindall and Prince Carl-Philip for the moss green Panama straw fedora with black hatband by British brand Arts On Hats
    – Love the burst of color on the yellow hysteresis loop shaped disc with feather starburst by British milliner Viv Jenner. I would love to see this on Zara Tindall.
    – Such a sleek look on the layered statement bandeau in black and natural straw with abstract rose by Australian milliner Louise Macdonald. I would love to see this on Princess Beatrice or Princess Eugenie at Ascot.
    – Queen Mathilde would look great in the wonderful blush surprise beneath the extended brim on this cloche by Australian milliner Cynthia Jones Bryson
    – The Countess of Wessex would look great in the incredible statement brim, beautifully shown off with silk binding by Dutch milliner Marianne Jongkind for Royal Ascot.

    • I agree with you on all these picks except the yellow hysteresis loop shaped disc with feather starburst by British milliner Viv Jenner. I think that would look better on a brunette–say Princess Mary or the Duchess of Cambridge.

    • I admired the multi-colored boater, too, and you are quite right that Princess Alexandra would wear it beautifully.
