A number of you have recently mentioned several of Queen Elizabeth’s hats that have been seldom worn but that you’d love to see repeated. If you would like to write a short guest post about the hats you’re eagerly awaiting to see again, please let me know. I’d like to feature these posts in coming weeks.
Queen Margrethe repeated her red bumper hat on Monday to open a special exhibit on Vikings at the Vikings Danish Castle Center in Vordingborg (Danish Monarchy)
Queen Silvia attended the wedding of her niece, Helena Sommerlath, last weekend in Bonn, Germany. She repeated the purple flowered hat she wore to Prince Alexander’s christening last summer.
The Prince of Wales presented the Army Air Corps with a new Guidon in celebration of their 60th anniversary while The Duke of Kent presented awards to soldiers of the 1st Battalion The Rifles yesterday.
Princess Olympia shared a self portrait in a leather beret while in Spain on Thursday. On Friday, she donned a bejewelled headpiece with flowers to walk in a Dolce and Gabanna runway show in Palermo. Lady Amelia Windsor also modelled in the show, in a large red floral headpiece.
On June 30th, Princess Kako was the Imperial family’s representative for the biannual ritual “Ceremony of Oharashi” at the Imperial Palace. She wore a cream bumper hat with bow at the back.
And the hats that caught my eye this week:
Stunning feather work on this Susanne Juul cocktail hat with textured straw base
Australian brand Fox Millinery’s red leather hat with laser cut black looping perspex brim
Classic and chic straw fedora from Emily London
Also from Australia, Felicity Northeast’s statement hat with amazing hand embroidery (back view here)
‘Falling Kitty’ wonderfully embellished beret perchers from Anya Caliendo. Such fun!
Some of you have also noticed a surge this season in boater hats- check out the final moments of the Chanel runway show in Paris on Tuesday.
Flora Ogilvy shared this candid photo of her father preparing for his upcoming exhibition of landscape photography on Nantucket Island. His work looks beautiful.
Lovely, nautical family photos of the Belgian and Dutch royal families were released this week.
And finally, Princess Märtha Louise shared the loveliest tribute to her mother on Queen Sonja’s 80th birthday
Happy 80th Birthday to one of my greatest inspirations in life: My Mom. Thank you for being stubborn enough to change what needed changing, loving enough to let everyone around you blossom and intuitive enough to let everyone be appreciated for who they are. #loveyoumom #happybirthday #80yearsyoung #inspiration
