Top Royal Hats in June 2016 | Royal Hats

Quote
After comparing the numerous beautiful new and repeated royal hats we saw worn in June (beyond those worn to Ascot or to Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday celebrations), two very clear winners have emerged:

This Week’s Extras | Royal Hats

Quote
The Countess of Wessex attended an engagement with the Army Corps of Music way back in June that was not publicly reported until well after the event. Her hat was a repeated Jane Taylor design (Corps of Army Music)

Takamado Princesses Visit Hiroshima | Royal Hats

Quote
Princess Hisako and Princess Ayako of Takamado were in Hiroshima last week to attend the National Junior Highschool Archery Championships. Last Wednesday they paid a visit to the Peace Memorial Park, both dressed in memorial white ensembles. Princess Ayako wore a simple white hat with short, upfolded brim while her mother, Princess Hisako, wore a larger scale design with flat brim and domed crown in the style of a Pork Pie hat. This is an unusual millinery shape for Hisako that I thought the sleek design was great on her.

Closer Look: The Pope’s Visit Hat | Royal Hats

Quote
My apologies for a quiet week here at Royal Hats. I’m under the weather and have been tucked in bed. I always feel better when discussing hats so let’s get some conversation started!

Another one of the hats on display at Holyrood House for this summer’s exhibition ‘Fashioning a Reign: 90 Years of Style from The Queen’s Wardrobe’ is this straw design by Angela Kelly that Queen Elizabeth wore for Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the UK in September 2010.

When Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain was crowned in the Abbey in 1953, the required head covering for women was a tiara or a veil. Hats were not permitted.

Let's not forget those with hat that could fit into the hat and the umbrella/parasol thread at the same time! :teehee: Not sure if CP Nahurito or CP Hakkon will be able to see much when Maxima turns her head! Maxima, Nahurito and Hakkon at Felipe and Letizia's wedding in 2004. Willem-Alexander is barely visible because he's hidden behind his wife's hat.

Hat Tried on by the Duchess of Cambridge Sells for Over £800

A hat tried on by the Duchess of Cambridge sold at auction yesterday for £800 to benefit her patronage the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

The Duchess opened the EACH Holt shop last March and during her visit tried on the navy-blue Boden hat. To mark the Holt shop’s first anniversary, EACH decided to auction off the hat to raise money for their hospices.

“It was so exciting when the Duchess of Cambridge opened the shop and we are really pleased to be able to sell the Boden hat on eBay to support our care services,” said Ian Nicolson, Head of Retail at EACH, in an interview with People magazine.

Queen Daisy is certainly an original in her hats and clothing as in so much else! Mary seems to have got addicted lately to the Jackie Kennedy pillbox look. I like her outfit, though. The family often looks as if it's going to sleep on these occasions. Don't blame them!

 :goodpost: Perfect description. I do like people with quirky fashion sense. Mary is quite boring IMO. Breaks no rules and looks like a walking advert for the latest designer labels. The other princess looks quite nice though.  The boredom understandable. That last thing you need in the morning is a parliamentary address in Danish. Plus no crowns or finery so it is all a bit like an executive meeting.

British Royals Welcome South Korean President on State Visit | Royal Hats

Quote
Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh welcomed President of South Korea, Park Geun-Hye, for the start of a three day state visit today. The Queen continued her recent streak of bright pink has with this new straw chapeau with flat crown and short, rolled, open-weave brim. It looks like the bands around the brim edge and crown are made of the same wool velvet as her coat. I particularly like how the different textures provide so much visual interest on what is otherwise, a rather simple hat. What do you think?

Kate Middleton is a global fashion icon, and while her dresses and skirt suits get plenty of attention, she's just as fashionable when it comes to her hats. From Jane Taylor fascinators to Philip Treacy designs ? and with a cowboy hat even thrown in! ? the Duchess of Cambridge always wows with her chic and stylish millinery. Here's a look at some of her best toppers!

Windsor Wedding, Thirty Years On | Royal Hats

Quote
Thirty years ago yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Kent?s eldest son, George Windsor, Earl of St. Andrews, was married to Canadian professor Sylvana Tomaselli. At the time of the nuptials, the bride was Catholic and divorced, issues which prevented a church wedding and caused the Earl to give up his rights of succession (thankfully, times have changed).  As such, a civil wedding was required and the young couple married in Scotland.

Imperial New Years Lectures 2018 | Royal Hats

Quote
Yesterday, members of the Imperial Royal Family attended the Ceremony of Kosho Hajime (Imperial New Year?s Lectures)  at Imperial Palace in Tokyo. A tradition of royal enlightenment since 1869, these Imperial New Year?s Lectures saw experts in the field of human, social and natural sciences address the royal delegation in their respective fields. When the lectures began 149 years ago, the daytime dress code across royal courts for ladies reflected the prevailing Victorian fashions of the time- long gowns with hats. This event is one of a handful each year that maintains this dress code, giving us the rare opportunity to see hats with full length gowns.

Sunday Church in Norfolk | Royal Hats

Quote
Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh attended Sunday service yesterday morning at St Lawrence Church in Castle Rising, close to their Sandringham estate. The Queen used the occasion to debut a lovely new hat in dark green felt. Following the shape of a modified cloche, the design features a high, stacked asymmetrical crown and short brim. A wide dark green hatband is punctuated with an under-hatband in lime green and the hat is trimmed with two large dark green quills and a knot of dark and lime green felt. The lime green accents work beautifully to lighten and brighten the dark hued hat and the trim gives just the right amount of pizzazz while keeping the overall design balanced. It?s a great hat on Her Majesty- one I would have preferred on Christmas Day over the orange design she wore.
