Members of Monaco’s royal family celebrated their principality’s patron and protector Santa Devota with a series of radiational events over the past two days. On Wednesday evening, festivities commenced with the arrival of a boat to the port which, after a series of blessings in a religious ceremony, was ceremonially set on fire. For this event, Princess Gabriella wore a slouchy black wool beret hat very reminiscent of her mother’s recent millinery style.
The placement of this piece makes it look like a halo bandeau from the front, beautifully framing Caroline’s face and making the beret style seem more current and modern than it does from the back. That’s where the view falls flat for me, both in terms of shape and texture.
Designer: unknown. Coat by Chanel. Previously Worn: This hat is new
Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella joined their father and aunt on the balcony of Prince’s Palace of Monaco to watch a procession following the mass. Princess Gabriella wore a dark blue velvet headband trimmed in faux pearls.
Prince Jacques repeated his miniature winter dress uniform of the Compagnie des Carabiniers du Prince (Prince’s Company of Riflemen, the infantry branch that protects the Royal Palace) complete with blue cloth helmet with red and white dress plumes.
Designer: unknown. Dior coat and Valentino lace skirt. Previously Worn: This headpiece is new
Beatrice Borromeo Casiraghi wore the only brimmed hat of the day, a tall crowned design with wide dropped brim in ecru braided straw trimmed with a wide black hatband and bow. The graphic contrast and spectacular scale of the design makes it stand out… and while I can’t ignore the construction issues giving the hatband some wobbles (it doesn’t look like it was cut on the bias), the overall look is an elegantly classic one for Beatrice.
