Royal Investiture


Garden Party

It’s a very special day when you attend a royal residence for either an investiture or a garden party and you want your hat or headpiece to be just as special.


The first thing after the initial excitement of receiving your royal invite and the realisation has sunk in is the big question “What am I going to wear “?


It is important to be smart and respectful to the Royal Family and your surroundings. You don’t want to look like you are going to a wedding or wearing evening wear. You don’t want your hat or headpiece to be over the top or to look like an afterthought.

John Paul has designed hats and headpieces for Investee’s collecting their awards and also for family members attending the investitures with them.  He can help guide you on shapes and styles that will compliment you and your outfit as well as being in-keeping with the dress code and protocol for this royal occasion.


A Royal Garden party in the grounds of Buckingham Palace or in one of the other impressive Royal gardens is a fantastic day and you want to make sure that your hat or headpiece finishes your outfit perfectly.


Make an appointment to meet with John Paul and during your consultation he will guide you through picking and designing your perfect hat or headpiece to wear to your Investiture Ceremony or Royal Garden Party.
