One of the milliners best know for creating some of the Queen’s most outstanding hats is Rachel Trevor-Morgan. Trevor-Morgan began making hats for the Queen in 2006.

Since then, she became one of the Queen’s preferred milliners and created 60 hats for Her Royal Highness.

Trevor-Morgan used to work closely with the Queen’s design team, including fashion designer Stewart Parvin and the Queen’s senior dresser and assistant Angela Kelly.

Freddy Fox is another one of the queen’s milliners.

“She wears what she feels comfortable in and she looks good in. It’s, after all, a working uniform for a very, very energetic, working lady,” Fox said.

Fox’s first hats for the Queen were designed in 1968. In 1974 he became the recipient of a royal warrant of appointment as “Milliner to HM The Queen”.

Fox made 350 hats for the Queen over 35 years, and also made hats for many members of the royal family.

Over the last 70 years, HRH has worn many remarkable and certainly unforgettable hats.

Whether it was small pillbox hats or wide-brimmed toppers, subtle pastels or bold brights with embossed flowers or ornate jewels and plumes, her hats always made a statement.
