This thread has rendered me speechless.  I'm between screeching laughter and jaw-dropping incredulity... :o

SOPHIE - is the woman deliberately trying to look totally absurd?  As far as I can see, her (or the tax payer's) money would be far better spent on a good hairdresser to get rid of those rat tails.  She has no taste.  ::)

The late PRINCESS MARGARET - always looked like her clothes were made out of old damask curtains but these pictures make her look almost like some sort of bizarre clown!

Incredibly, Anne looks better than these two!  She may be dowdy and dated but at least she doesn't look ridiculous! Absolutely unbelievable.  

Thanks, Grand Duke, have been tittering about this thread throughout the day.  ;D

Yes, thank Grand Duke for a wonderfully entertaining thread.
 
Some of those hats are no more extreme than those worn in the early 20th century when it was possible to find WHOLE birds ticked within the folliage.

Grace and Tsaria

I'm glad you liked this thread. So I must continue to post more photos of these beautiful royal hats!

About birds in hats, I remember that 18th century wigs were so exaggerate: very tall, ornated with fruits, leaves, jewels and living rats. The rats lived inside the wigs and eat the wax and tissue which the wigs were made.  :-/

Aw, shouldn't they get cut some break since many of those hats were at Ascot, the grand event of bad hats?

Now as for Princess Anne, isn't her C&C wedding outfit the same as seen in the carriage picture with Pss Margaret?

Eugenie started using sophisticated hats when she was younger:

Remember the old days when hats actually went on one's head?   ;D ;D :o :o

TampaBay, don't you think that Eugenie's hats are far too sophisticated (not to mention hideous, most of them) for a 15 year old girl?  ??? ;D ;D ;D

Grace

No, I think Eugenie's hat are just plain ugly.  Nothing sophisticated about any of her choices.  They do not even match her clothes.  Ugly! Ugly! Ugly!

Thay all look like they are attending a Shriner's Fund Raising Picnic or the Kentucky State Fair and won those hats at a "ring toss" game.  Three tries for a quater!
