The four-day Royal Windsor Horse Show took place over the weekend. Lady Louise Windsor drove the carriage formerly belonging to her late grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, in Friday night’s “A Gallop Through History” Platinum Jubilee celebration” and took part yesterday in the ‘Champagne Laurent-Perrier Meet of The British Driving Society,’ wearing in her loden green felt driving hat for both events. This lovely take on a top hat features an upturned brim on one side balanced by an exuberant spray of swirled striped pheasant and chocolate-burgundy biot feathers on the other side, finished with wide green silk hatband overlaid on the bottom with slim, scrolled green braid.
On Saturday, Louise wore her mum’s navy felt fedora with stitched black leather hatband and feather spray held in a polished and hand-engineered cartridge.
It’s an effortlessly stylish hat that Louise again carries so well, making it a perfect choice for a casual outing such as this. May this be the first of many hats Louise wears from her mum’s wardrobe!

The Countess of Wessex joined her daughter yesterday, taking part in carriage driving in her navy blue velvet hat with straight-sided crown and downward sloped brim.
The scale seems to overwhelm Sophie a little, although the colour and luxe texture of the velvet is wonderful.
