  1. Happy 90th Birthday to Queen Elizabeth and may she celebrate many more. Her hat collection is colossal. Thank you for putting this together HatQueen and I hope you had a happy and relaxing holiday.

  2. What a beautiful and artful tribute to a woman whose sense of duty and commitment can only be admired. Thank you for this.


  4. Thank you @HatQueen for this awesome tribute for HM’s 90th birthday! A few hats I’ve never seen before, and of course, minus 2, they’re all from the 21st Century, which is incredible. Someone did something like this once for (I think) Beatrix or Máxima a little while back; I’ll have to see if I can find it, but I’m certain it comes no where near this level of greatness. Cheers Ma’am!

  5. What a beautiful tribute! Thank you for that brilliant show of color!

    Hip Hip Hooray Your Majesty! Best wishes for the happiest of birthdays!


    • Treat for the eyes MY WORD. I saw this when I got home from work and my plans to cook dinner went out the window because I could not drag my eyes away from this. Sent the man out for takeout because I was glued to this (no kidding). IT IS AMAZING. I don’t know how you did this but it’s THE BEST ROYAL HAT POST EVER.

      LOL. I was mad at your long break (who gets 3 weeks of vacation in the real world?) but you made it all better with this. YOU ROCK.

  7. Goodness: the full spectrum of color. That must have taken some thought and composition. I still alight on “25 bells” (14) and the hat to its right (13) and then, to my surprise, the “Wedgwood” hat (101) and the one to its left (102). As she wrote to one of her milliners, Her Majesty must be one of the major supporters of the hat industry. Many happy returns, Ma’am. And, thank you for your hard work in compiling this retrospective, Hat Queen.

  8. Its a rainbow of hats! This must have taken two weeks to put together. Are you sure you were on holiday HatQueen?
    So many great hats!

  9. What a huge amount of work to pull all this together. Thank you! (And you know everyone’s thinking right now of what hats possibly could be missing!)
    I wonder how many of these hats would bring back specific memories for the Queen. For whoever has met the Queen, seeing the hat she was wearing at the time of the meeting certainly would bring back memories, I’m sure.

  10. Fantastic! There were several surprises of unknown hats mixed in the rainbow of loveliness! Thank you HQ, you already deserve a break after this week alone!

  11. Brilliant and a lot of work, what’s the chance of a look back through the years as Elizabeth II hat inventories only cover from 2000, her style transformation from 1930s to the present day in hats. That could be interesting.

    • “Hatrospective” is the perfect word for this, JamesB!

      You have really outdone yourself this time, HatQueen! Thank you so much for compiling this.
