Grab a seat, hatters -- time to enjoy our final Hat Christmas hurrah of the year!
Finally! HM let herself go a wee bit wild on the final day of Ascot in this repeat from last year's state visit to Ireland. Still an absolutely ridiculous hat, but that's what Ascot is for!
And, unusually for the last day of Ascot, we have a few more hatters, too!
A Yorkie on the final day of Ascot??? Now that's a gift! And I even sort of like today's version of the Flat Beret a little better than the previous incarnations:
The natural color is less harsh than the white version, and the coral is really flattering -- plus, the embellishments are fab! Have a gander:
Very under-the-sea chic! (Also, hello, Smiley DAVE -- we've missed you! Don't be such a stranger!)
And finally -- a rather unexpected appearance from our favorite Canadian Maple Leaf!
Lovely jaunty navy blue, Autumn! So happy the Phillipses could stop by for the holiday fun!
So, sadly, that's it for this year's Hat Christmas, everybody! (And the last day in a LONG stretch of June royal events!) It's been a great one -- ready to start the countdown for next year? I am!
