Royal Hats
"Following the bold, beautiful, and bizarre world of royal millinery"

You can also follow this blog on Twitter (@royalhats) and on Facebook (The Royal Hats Blog).

In addition to posts about recent royal hats, the blog includes a glossary of hat types and design features, a list of royal milliners, a photo gallery of royal ladies, and a guide to major royal hatted events. It has a very interactive following, with interactive polls and an active number of commenters.

HRH The Countess of Wessex
Written by Anna, this is a relatively new blog--it launched in January 2014. To my knowledge, it is currently the only blog focusing on The Countess of Wessex. Anna's admiration for Sophie grew out of her growing interest in the British Royal Family during the run up to the 2011 Royal Wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

In addition to news updates about Sophie's royal engagement, the blog also includes her biography, a list of her upcoming engagements, her patronages and honors, as well as a page devoted to her own royal wedding in 1999.

You can follow Anna on Facebook (My small obsessions) and on Twitter (@AnnieElizabethN). Her other blog is HRH The Duchess of Cambridge.

Royal Women
With a particular emphasis on noble and royal women, this blog focuses on the history and biography of women through the ages. Its author, Malena, has a particular interest in Anne Boleyn and the Tudors but the blog has a far broader range, encompassing many countries and centuries.

Unfortunately, the blog has not been updated in a few years, but it does provide more than a dozen royal profiles, which, by their nature, do not grow stale.
