Fancy royal hats are among our favorite things, and today’s Maundy Thursday service in York has inspired us to declare a fancy hat smackdown.
In one corner, we have Princess Beatrice. Known for her outrageous headwear, the royal dialed it down a notch, opting for a lovely cream fascinator with navy rosettes and artful netting. In the other corner, we have Queen Elizabeth II sporting a classic Liz chapeau. The teal creation perfectly matches her tweed ensemble — there’s even a bit of the same tweed trimming the brim. And our wild card contender is Archbishop of York John Sentamu, with arguably the most intricate topper of them all. The embroidery is incredibly impressive, plus his hat features Jesus.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
