Fine Art Daily, Royal Wedding Hat, corgi

Monty here, upstairs today. HM is having a devil of a time deciding which hat to wear on Friday. Philip Treacy has designed some spun-sugar confections for her approval, and her favored milliner, Freddie Fox, has some very attractive designs, as usual. But we are hoping she picks our Linnet's inspired design. It is an homage to Alexander McQueen, Izzy Blow and the beautiful and loyal troops of corgis who have amused and served HM through the years. See is you can find me in the delicious kennel of corgis encircling HM's head! (I don't see the nuisance of royal cats devising anything half so clever OR beauteous!)
Off to brekkie now. HM is sure to slip me a banger this morning, she has been counting calories this week...
And Jean says, in her annoying fashion, that if you would like a high res PDF of this hat so you have something special to wear on Friday morning when you celebrate Wills and Kate's marriage, that all you need to do if email her.
