I have been a royal fan since before I can remember. It’s in my blood- my mother, aunts, and grandmother all followed the British Royal Family religiously and I grew up knowing more about them than I did some of my own relatives. My own royal passions have been fashion related and for more than four decades, I have been utterly mad about royal hats. Writing this blog has brought me into conversation with others who share this crazy admiration and together, we have created a lovely space for all royal hat lovers to congregate, engaging in fun conversation about hats and sharing our passion for millinery.

How To Share A Photo In A Comment
If you know the date a hat was worn, the easiest way to share a photo is to go to Getty Images and type in the royal hat wearer’s name and the date (i.e. June 25, 2012) in the search box. A number of photos should come up in the search. Click on the one you want to share, and it should open in a new window. Scroll down to the bottom of the photo and click on the Embed box. A new box will open with a long standard code at the top- copy all of this and paste it in the comment (to create a slideshow, click on additional photos on the right side under “Add items to create a slideshow” then post the new code from the code box in the comment here on Royal Hats). The photo(s) should automatically show up when you post your comment.
If you want to share a specific photo from somewhere other than Getty, post a URL link to it at its original source (please don’t post links to Pinterest).
All opinions and comments about hats are welcome. Opinions and comments about the real people involved – those both wearing or designing these hats – must remain respectful. This is not a place for personal attacks on any fellow human, either royal or non-royal. Inappropriate comments, including speculation about a royal’s character or level of taste and comments about body type, will be deleted without notice. Those who leave three inappropriate comments will simply find themselves unable to comment here again; those who make racist comments will be immediately banned. Fun, wit, questions, and sarcasm is welcome as long as the overall tone remains respectful.
Welcome to the Bold, Beautiful and utterly Bizarre world that is Royal Millinery!
