This Week’s Extras

Royal Hats

Queen Elizabeth, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge snapped last weekend en route to church in Scotland. Kate’s burgundy hat is a design we’ve not seen on her before (Daily Mail)

Prince Henrik opened a new hunting chase house last weekend in an appropriately outdoorsy hat (The Danish Monarchy)

Nice to see Princess Anne up and about again at the Whatley Manor Horse trials after her recent sickness (Daily Mail)

A preview of the final section of this year’s amazing exhibition on Queen Elizabeth’s fashion due to open at Windsor Castle today. It looks like the exhibit focuses on ensembles Her Majesty has worn at Windsor and the hat display are designs all worn to Ascot (including the orange one dubuted just this year)

There are several John Boyd sun hats here that I’d love to see on several British royal heads. And a few more for myself, please.

Countess Gunnila Bernadotte passed away on Monaday. While we did not see the Countess in many hats (just this one at Princess Leonore’s christening), The Royal Court Jeweller has a lovely memorial post looking at her jewels. 

Great article by the Countess of Wessex about her upcoming bike ride in support of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (Daily Mail)

Our friends over at Luxarazzi have linked to an interesting look inside preparations for an official dinner at the Grand Ducal Family’s residence, Château de Berg. While the report is not in English, it still provides a great peek inside a working royal palace. 

Somehow, I missed the the release of this stunning image of Prince Daniel and Prince Oscar, taken at Crown Princess Victoria’s July 15th birthday celebration. See two others taken the same day here and here.
