Danish Royals Skiing in Switzerland

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie and their children posed for pictures this morning with their children, Prince Nicolai, Prince Felix, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena. The family is on a skiing holiday in Villars, Switzerland so ski hats and helmets were the order of the day.

Danish Princes Visit Gentofte

Yesterday, Prince Henrik of Denmark visited Garderhoejfort, the historic fortress in Gentofte, with his grandsons, Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix. It certainly looks like a grand time was had by this trio, who posed for the press in reproduction soldier’s hats. I think this might be one of my favourite royal hat photos of 2013!

Who Wore it Best: July 2013 Poll

The Royal Hats Blog

The Royal Hats Bog When you think of a quintessential summer hat, what do you think of? For me, it’s a classic panama hat. Like us, most royals are on vacation these days and with vacation comes the inevitable sightings of royals in panama hats. Since I have featured exclusively women in these polls so far, I thought it would be fun to do a “Princes Only” version of our monthly poll featuring a string of handsome royal men in summery panama hats. The only question is – in your opinion, Who Wore It Best?
