Ascot 2022 Day 3: The Princess Royal & Timothy Laurence

Princess Anne and Vice Admiral Timothy Laurence attended the third day of racing at Ascot Racecourse today. The Princess Royal repeated her oyster sinamay hat with shallow crown and sidesweeping brim trimmed with cream feathers and apricot and cream curling quills.

I’ve previously described this hat as a great design with excellent proportions of  scale, shape, and such well balanced trim… and it’s true! I just wish Anne would go to milliner Amy Morris-Adams for all of her hats.

Ascot 2022 Day 1: Princess Anne, Timothy Laurence & Peter Phillips

Princess Anne and her family enjoyed the races today. She repeated a brown sinamay waved disc hat trimmed with ivory and chocolate layered sinamay bows and ivory feathers.

Embed from Getty Images

While the hat pairs well with Anne’s embroidered coat, I’m neither a fan of the shape or the trim. It also is so like some of her other hats, I’m very surprised not to find any previous outings (I think it’s new!).  Was it the best addition to Anne’s millinery wardrobe? I’m not so sure. In the gallery below, you’ll see her husband, Vice Admiral Timothy Laurence, joined the carriage procession in his black silk top hat.

Previously Worn:  I think this hat is new.

Peter Phillips attended today in his black top hat.
