This Week’s Extras

Way back in November, Princess Nobuko wore a lovely red brimless calot to a Red Cross convention.

On Friday, Queen Margrethe repeated her purple brimmed hat with bow trim to open a new exhibition on 150 years of representation of women and gender in art.
Also on Friday, Crown Princess Victoria wore a cozy navy knit hat to visit Färnebofjärden National Park, her first in a series of outings that will take her to all of Sweden’s national parks.

  1. Yet another example of how this blog is about more than hats: I’d never heard of Ron Robertson-Swann or VAULT before. Zia Pazza’s witty tribute hat must be easily recognizable in Melbourne. Very fun to see a bit of the creative process in Silver Hill Creative’s video, and I think she was right about the grosgrain. Since we’re reviewing CP Mary’s hats this week, Himeo Chapeau’s elegant headpiece looks just right for her.

    So lovely to see HM looking so lively on this historic occasion!

  2. It is so wonderful to see Queen Elizabeth in such sparkling form as her historic Platinum Jubilee year commences.
    Crown Princess Mary’s aqua gown is stunning.
    Some very interesting new hats. Thank you Hat Queen.

  3. Just a quick note to HQ: the Queen is marking the 70th anniversary of her “Accession” rather than “Ascension”!
