The following new millinery designs caught my eye this week:

Oversize pale blue saucer with crin brim edge and pastel trim by UK milliner Merve Bayindir
Jewel toned trilbys with textural patterned hatbands by new UK brand Karasu London
Exquisite design in pleated pink crin from Munich based milliner Nicki Marquardt
Très chic rain hat in maroon water repellent cotton from Australian milliner Helen Kaminsky
Sculpted sky blue straw saucer percher with lace trim from UK brand Layla Leigh Millinery
Coral straw boater with bows and net overlay from Australian brand Jill and Jack Millinery
Striking tri-colour blocked oversize fedora with flying bow from UK milliner Lisa Tan
Teal leather pillbox base percher with giant spring bloom from Tasmanian Cessiah Alice Millinery
Lovely use of black net on this felt design with pork pie crown from Australian milliner Meg Rafter

I don’t imagine we’ll see these on royal heads but the saucer and percher designs trimmed with food by Israeli milliner Maor Zabar are most certainly memorable.

Princess Märtha Louise, who is an accomplished equestrian, showed that talent for this sport has passed to a new generation of Norwegian royal family members with this video of her daughter Leah’s first international competition.

The entire Danish royal family joined Queen Margrethe to watch soldiers from the Royal Guard bring Prince Henrik’s remains to Parliament’s church in Copenhagen last night, where it will remain for members of the public to visit until Monday.
