The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall led the royal carriage procession again today for the second day of Royal Ascot. The Duchess wore a new hat, in fine cream straw with angular crown and gently sidesweeping brim. The sleek design is trimmed simply with a monochrome cream silk padded hatband.
Thanks to reader Jake Short for the reminder this hat was worn first for the opening of parliament last year- Camilla has so many hats in this same shape it’s difficult to keep them straight. This one is fine… but with so many other cream hats in her wardrobe, I’m curious about why another has been added.
Designer: Philip Treacy. Dress by Bruce Oldfield.
Previously Worn: May 11, 2021
