This hat is not bad.  It matches the outfit.  I would wear this hat.  However, the shoes s_ _k out loud and ruin a very nice outfit.

Princess Michael's hat reminded me of a fishing net for some reason, and I thought it was an odd, though somehow appropriate choice for her.  In case there are any £20 notes flying about, it would catch them!

Zara's purple number would look terrific on the head of a ventriloquist's dummy.  Does anyone remember Wayland and Madame?

You're not just a Grand Duke - you are a hero.   You have brought us so much pleasure with those pictures.   Do you know who I think would love to see them - complete with captions... H.M.

These EXTREME hats worn by the new generation of royals almost mirror image those of a few generations before.

I so agree with you, Tsaria.  The new, outrageous hats certainly harken back to those worn a century ago or more....

The words "springtime garden" come to mind here.  I wonder what in the world they did with Cookie's wardrobe after her death?  Can you imagine QEII, Camilla, and Anne rifling through her closets?

"I want that dress."
"Give this hat to Sophie."
"You could get some miles out of this dress, Anne."
"I'll take that lovely pastel frock."
"Maybe Zara could alter this one."

I'll bet they were secretly glad poor Margaret wasn't there....

What an utterly delightful thread!  I have been weeping with hysteria at some of these images.......

I am slightly disappointed that Camilla is so poorly represented on these pages, but will concede that the skunk headdress really beats the pants off all the others in terms of hideosity.......

Grateful thanks to all who have contributed - much pleasure is to be derived from viewing these millinery faux pas........ ;)

I have to say that I don't think that hat is nearly as awful as some of the other fashion horrors seen on these pages.......I'll bet that this ensemble probably looked good in posed photographs.

Plus, The Dss of Kent can be excused almost anything, as she is such a wonderful person.........
