Furry Hats at Sandringham

On December 25, Britain’s royal family, like every year, attended the traditional Christmas Day church service at St Mary Magdalene Church on the royal estate in Norfolk.

The Queen appeared in light beige colors, wearing a chequered coat to which she added a warm scarf, pinned with one of her delicate brooches and a blonde fur hat.

The Duchess of Cornwall greeted the people in a lovely off-white coat with a polka-dotted and a chequered scarf and chose a big brown fur hat, probably beaver, to keep her head warm. Among the European royals, fur hats seem to be quite en vogue this season – even Denmark’s Prince Henrik was spotted in a large, Ushanka-like example only a day before at Møgeltønder.

The Countess of Wessex wore a neat navy-blue coat and went for a rather discreet hat in a lovely purple shade, decorated with tiny pearls and jewels.

Among the attendees who joined the Queen at the annual Christmas church service, have also been Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York, who both appeared in chic outfits this year – Beatrice chose a charcoal-grey coat, knee-high black boots and a black fascinator with a white rose on it. Eugenie looked stylish in a sapphire-blue coat, a white fur scarf and a black hat with pheasant feathers. Both the Princesses hats are most likely by Philip Treacy, their preferred milliner.
