Spanish Royals Headwear
 
Do you know the hat which Queen Sofia and Princess Elena wear at Prince Felippe wed in May?What do they call it?I mean the name of it.Is it the Spanish tradional Royal Wedding hat?It looks like one of the crown of Egypt Queen.

It's a mantilla, very old spanish tradition.
Women wear it at special occasions, like a wedding and also (i think) at funerals. :unsure:

Women wear it in weddings (usually wear mantilla only the groom´s mother) and during Easter. Too some brides wear mantilla and not veil.
And with the mantilla all women wear the "peineta" http://www.complementosdenovia.com/c...es/peineta.jpg

Is it more religious thing or traditional thing?? coz it's remind me of Muslim's veil. Queen Rania and Moroccan royal lady will wear veil on religious ceremony..

I wonder why the Spanish Royals do not wear hats. Is there a correct reason for this as they seem to be the only ones. All the other Royal Ladies have wonderful hats but the Spanish Queen plus her two daughters and daughter-in-law don't bother. Many of their outfits would look really "finished" with a matching head piece.

I once heard that Queen Sofia hates wearing hats. That's why she doesn't wear hats for official engagements and that's also why the other Spanish Ladies don't wear hats.
Maybe one day Letizia will be invited to a wedding/other event where hats belong to the dresscode. That would be great. :D

Duke of Marmalade 06-18-2009 04:36 AM

Sofia doesn't do the classical hats that we see on the Dutch or British royals but she has done headwear in the past, eg on the occasion of Royal Weddings.

Looks like she doesn't like it but if protocol forces her to find a solution she'll come up with one ;)

Indeed , I remember how surprised everyone was when Sofia wore a black hat during the welcoming ceremony during the State Visit to Norway in 2006

I also love the pics of Letizia wearing mantillas. It was so regal and elegant. Infanta Cristina wore a hat during Felipe and Letizia's wedding if I'm not mistaken.
