Royal Ascot 2017 Day 1: Dubai Royals

Royal Ascot | Royal Hats Princess Haya bint Hussein attended the first day of Royal Ascot today with her daughter, Sheikha Jalila, both in eye catching hats. Princess Haya’s white picture hat with flat crown and wide, mushroom brim is trimmed with the same navy lace that adorns her dress and a dark blue silk hatband.

Sheikha Jalila made her Ascot debut in a hat described by the designer as a “Straw teardrop percher, trimmed with abaca silk bow with petersham ribbon edging”. While the hat photographs here as navy (thanks to bright sunshine at the races this year!), I believe it is actually black. Her father, Sheikh Mohammad, repeated his black silk top hat.
