Hats are not required when ladies have tea with the Queen.
But they are still the most creative fashion statements you will see.
Flowers like roses and daisies, softly-colored ribbons, exotic feathers, paper butterflies, matching colors, contrasting colors, red ones, white ones, dyed-to-match ones, theme hats, antique ones, new ones, ethnic ones, borrowed hats, custom-made hats, Renaissance hats, Victorian hats, you’ll see them all.
For the 2008 royal garden party at Buckingham Palace, ladies from other countries (Africa and Burma) wore native hand-made hats.
Younger women wore fascinators, a headband with a miniature hat or feather arrangement on one side.
Some women did not wear hats, and others brought several hats to wear for different events throughout the day.
If I were to attend a tea event at the Palace with the Queen, I would wear a romantic hat, possibly circa Queen Anne, rather than a smart modern hat.
