John Boyd, Royal Milliner, passed away last week peacefully at the age of 92. A wonderful Milliner, boss and dear friend. He had the most incredible millinery career spanning over 70 years and made many beautiful hats for Princess Diana and Princess Anne. Working alongside him for 5 years I learnt so much, he was the most inspiring and generous millinery teacher a young hat maker could ask for! He had an amazing zest for life and sense of fun, we often sat telling stories over a coffee and our sewing and he loved a good hat shop party!
A true unique soul xxxx RIP
