Before we get into this week’s recap… I have had to moderate more comments than usual over the past week and sadly, was forced to ban two longtime participants. Please review The Comment Policy here at Royal Hats if you’re not familiar with it and my great thanks to the many of you who do a stellar job of keeping the conversation here a respectful one. Now- to the hats!

Just when we think Stephen Jones has taken millinery as far as it can go, he makes a bejewelled peanut butter sandwich fascinator. Words escape me for this one.
British royal photographer Chris Jackson caught this stellar image of the Cambridges in the Musee D’Orsay in Paris yesterday morning. Kate looked great in Chanel and played a strong fashion game all weekend.
Nice to shoot something a little different this morning - This is my fav shot of the day - The Duke and Duchess taking in the view of the #Seine in front of the iconic railway clock at the @museeorsay this morning. Managed to get a little profile on the Duchess and frame them between the spokes of the clock which I think you need #royalphotographer #royalvisitparis #duchessofcambridge #dukeofcambridge #museedorsay @gettyimages #gettyimages @kensingtonroyal
The Duchess of Cambridge wasn’t the only one in Chanel yesterday- Princess Caroline and her family hosted the annual Rose Ball in Monaco. They opted for a Chanel parade while Princess Camilla of Bourbon-Two Sicilies predictably went for a showstopper in pink.
