While we already saw the Duchess of Cornwall’s furry hat at the Hennesy Gold Cup last month, we missed those worn by Princess Anne, Lady Frederick Windsor and Lady Gabriella Windsor (Tatler). Thank to reader Laura for the links!

Milliner Stephen Jones shared this throwback photo of his first design purchased by the Victoria and Albert Museum back in 1982. It’s a very interesting design that feels quite ahead of its time.
First hat purchased by the V&A in 1982. Velvet from Rodophe Simon satin from Edward Rayne. @vamuseum @susannahfrankel @anothermagazine & @stephenjonesmillinery in conversation introduced by #oriolecullen talking about #hatsananthologybystephenjones and #stephenjonessouvenirs @rizzolibooksuk @rizzolibooks #millinery #hats #fashion #glamour #london
125th anniversary of the Luxembourg-Nassau dynasty was celebrated this week (Luxarazzi)
Royal houses have been filling social media with images of the Christmas Trees. The young Danish Princes and Princesses decorated their tree this week and how charming are these crown ornaments on the Buckingham Palace Christmas trees? My favourite royal tree so far is the one at Clarence House.
Such a sweet new photo released of Prince Amadeo, Archduchess Elisabetta and wee Archduchess Anna Astrid.
Some serious sparkle at Buckingham Place for the annual Diplomatic Reception… although I wouldn’t be sad at all to see the Princes dump the knee britches part of their formal dress.
And the royal cuteness award of the week goes to little Princess Amelia of Luxembourg, cuddling her new baby brother Prince Liam. Adorable.
La Grande-duchesse de Luxembourg nous fait le cadeau de partager les premières photos du fils du Prince Félix et de la Princesse Claire … qui annoncent aussi les prénoms de leur bébé : Liam Henri Hartmut.
