The following new millinery designs caught my eye this week:
Elegant black and white straw bergere hat by British milliner Jane Bailey
White straw upsweep trimmed with the most wonderful flowers from London-based Bundle MacLaren
Striking black and caramel straw percher (the veil!) and fedora from Madrid milliner Biliana Borissova
Swooning over this massive brimmed design with lilac velvet hatband from Australian brand Murley & Co.
Fascinating inverted brim on this almond lattice straw wide brimmed saucer from London-based Philip Treacy

I’m always drawn to classic black and white and this stunning wide brimmed design, by Australian milliner Catherine Ellen, puts a beautifully modern twist on this colour scheme.
Yin Yang number five sent to @xterrace for #RoyalAscot. As you may know this won first prize in France in 2017 and we have made very few reproductions. #RestrainedElegance for the #RoyalEnclosure . . . . #races #eventsinlondon #ascot2018 #royalascothats #melbourne #millinery #racewear #racinghats #ss18
Great article by Omid Scobie about the whole story behind the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress (Harper’s Bazaar). Speaking of the wedding- I updated nearly all of last weekend’s posts on the royal wedding with late release photos (there are some great ones!). You can access all of these posts here. And don’t miss this interview with Canadian media personality Ben Mulroney about his children’s participation in the wedding.
Prince Hussein passed out high school diplomas to a class that included his sister, Princess Salma. Their exchange was adorable, as are the photos with Queen Rania trying on Salma’s mortar board.
And we close with the same prince that opened this post- Crown Prince Frederik’s 50th birthday celbrations kicked off last weekend with a mile long “Royal Run” held in cities across Denmark. Frederick was joined in Copenhagen with Crown Princess Mary and their four children. The video below also shows a very sweet clip of his mum, Queen Margrethe, popping out on to the balcony of Amalienborg Palace to cheer him on.
