Our friends over at Luxarazzi have an interesting interview with milliner Sylvia Martinez about her participation in a recent exhibition which included designing pieces for Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie. I’m curious to hear your thoughts on her designs.

I’d love to see this crimson and gold feathered fedora by Jess Collett at the Cheltenham races this year on a royal head. What a fun style departure it would be for the Duchess of Cambridge.
Have you heard about the Georgian Papers Programme, in which more than 350,000 usually unseen royal documents from the Georgian period (most relating to King George III and Queen Charlotte) are being made available online? This article at the Guardian has a great explanation of the project as does this page from the Royal Collection Trust. The project went live this morning.
