Royal Ascot: Day Two Hats

My favorite hat on Day Two of Royal Ascot, and perhaps of the entire race meeting, is this wonderful hat worn by the Countess of Wessex. I will let the hat speak for itself.

The Royal Hats blog describe this hat made by Jane Taylor as:

“. . . a wonderful oversized boater hat. In plum hued straw, the piece features a short, flat crown wrapped in what looks like a cream silk abaca hatband and a very wide brim, trimmed with large purple and pink silk cabbage roses and a cream silk twist.

There were other very lovely hats but nothing like this one. Brava!

Honourable Mention

I have not been inspired by any of HM The Queen’s hats at Royal Ascot this year but quite like the yellow one seen here. Camilla has worn two very beautiful although predictable hats. Both royal ladies look terrific in these colours.
