This Week’s Extras

Royal Hats

Queen Elizabeth wore a new teal blue hat to church last Sunday. Frustratingly, there are no pictures I can share but you can see it here. Today, she made a surprise appearance at the Aboyne Highland Games in her lilac straw hat with flowers by Rachel Trevor Morgan.

Princess Elena’s predictable ‘wear fedora to bullfight’ routine was stirred up this week with a chocolate version paired with jazzy hot pink tassel earrings. The charming photo of her children (with Froilan in a baseball cap) was taken today at the 36th Copa Del Rey Mafre Sailing Cup in Palma de Mallorca

The following hats caught my eye this week:

Wide brimmed natural straw boater from The Hat Shop in New York
Amazing sense of movement on this raspberry pink leather and crin headpiece from Aussie brand Jill and Jack Millinery
Unexpected and interesting feather trim on this Susanne Juul design
Show stopping white straw and lace cocktail hat from Irish brand Montgomery Millinery
Classic and crisp black and white trilby from Jill Courtemanche Millinery
And for a fall trilby, this striking electric blue felt one with gold maple leaf from Rachel Trevor Morgan

I’m reluctant to provide another platform for complaints but as Prince Henrik’s rather unsavory announcement made international headlines this week, it deserves acknowledgement, however petty and ungracious it is (New York Times)

New photo of Prince Louis of Luxembourg with his sons, Prince Noah and Prince Gabriel, released this week for Louis’ 31st birthday (Luxarazzi)

And finally, lovely snaps of the Spanish king and queen with their daughters taken this week during their annual summer vacation in Palma de Mallorca
