Hats off, or rather on, to young milliner Rosie Olivia, who designed the hat worn by the Queen’s granddaughter Princess Beatrice to church on Christmas Day (.

Rosie, 24, a graduate of King David Primary School, Liverpool and youth groups Habonim and FZY, started her bespoke hat business with a grant from the Prince’s Trust. Her royal commission came after she “went to a Prince’s Trust event and spotted Princess Beatrice. It went from there.”
