  2. That’s a great new Maison Michel fedora for Max! The feathered Lisa Von Hallwyl makes me think of her Ascot appearance, so I’m picking that for Max in hopes of another one.

    Princess Eleanore is adorable.

    LOVE all your picks, Shannon!

    Joining lesleyc19 and Beth in their appreciation of the gorgeous Louise Claire hat. Nifty use of tweed and rope trim on Wendy Scully’s pillbox. That would be a good working hat for several royals. Hilarious “Cyril” and Easter bonnet headpieces!
