At a time when fashion sustainability is only growing in importance, it’s lovely to see any royal pull something out of their closet that has not been much worn, especially when it’s as sharp and chic a hat as this! The pairing of hat with streamlined cream dress and sleek ponytail works so well and the hat’s colour and scale suits Beatrice very well. Whoever is styling her this week deserves applause!

Edoardo looked very dapper indeed in his black antique silk top hat. It’s lovely to see young spouses embracing traditional hats like this, isn’t it?!

Thoughts about these hats at the races today?

  1. I had also forgotten this was a repeat (which probably explains the brim being slightly wonky on down tilt/her left side). Beatrice suits boaters (or boaters suit Beatrice?) very well, and Edoardo definitely can wear a top hat; they make a very chic couple here.

  2. I had totally missed this was a repeat, probably because I found it’s last outing a bit underwhelming. Left to sing against a plain white dress, this hat really does sing. And her make up is excellent too. A totally different look from yesterday’s, but still excellent. She looks fantastic – and Edo again looks incredibly stylish. They’re quite the glam couple.

  3. Something about a boater just sings on Bea! This hat deserved a repeat and it looks great here. These two are my Day 2 winners!

  4. Ah, the bullseye hat! I almost always appreciate a good hat repeat, and this one is just right with the dress.

    Doesn’t Edo look as though he’s been wearing morning suits and top hats for his entire life?

  5. Yes, quite a contrast to yesterday for Princess Beatrice and equally lovely.
    I actually love a boater and this one is really smart, chic and fun. With a very chic cream dress and gorgeous shoes and bag.

    Edoardo is very dapper again.

  6. Beatrice looked very nice and sleek – a fun contrast to yesterday. As a rule I don’t think boaters are flattering to anyone, but this one has just enough height at the crown that it seems to work.
