Considering the first Ritz Hotel was in New York and the song was penned by an American you really should look to the U.S for that answer.

PS The vid's a German singer. We've left the E.U.

INQUIRING MINDS WANTED TO KNOW

Throughout British history, hats and fascinators have been a part of the upper-class etiquette. The headgear also denotes social standing. ... It completes the outfit and it's a finishing touch." There are even rules for which hats go with different hemlines.

Queen Elizabeth II has worn about 5,000 different hats over the past 50 years. The hats represent more than simply a fashion statement, according to royal biographer Robert Lacey. "Hats, you see, are obviously very significant items of clothing in a monarch," Lacey said.

Does the queen dress herself?
According to The Express, the answer is yes. The outlet noted that “Up to 12 people staff the queen's wardrobe department for big occasions including three dressmakers, a milliner and four dressers whose job it is to help the queen get dressed as well as keep her clothes in pristine condition.”

Does Queen Elizabeth repeat outfits?
Queen Elizabeth doesn't have quite the same liberties as her granddaughters-in-law. Via Insider, the monarch's outfits are worn in public no more than twice, after which they are either remodeled or reserved for private gatherings. According to Brian Hoey, the author of Not Infront of the Corgis, Her Majesty donates her old clothes to her dressers, who are then allowed to either wear it themselves or sell it.

The royal family knows a thing or two about style — especially when it comes to formal events. From tiaras to gloves to hats, Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle, and other royals are always dressed to the nines. But as it turns out, many of the family’s formal fashion choices adhere to royal style rules, not personal preference.

Wearing hats isn’t just a royal thing — it’s a British thing! In England, hats are considered formal daytime attire and often worn at weddings and other classy events. Since most of the events royals attend during the day — especially the garden parties thrown at Buckingham Palace — are considered formal, Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton, and other royals are expected to wear hats.

While men might also wear hats to formal events, it is more common for a woman to sport the accessory. “Up until the late 1950s ladies were very seldom seen without a hat as it was not considered ‘the thing’ for ladies to show their hair in public,” Diana Mather, a senior tutor for The English Manner etiquette consultancy told BBC. “But that has changed, and hats are now reserved for more formal occasions,” she concluded.

Despite being a strict royal family rule, there are times when royal women are not allowed to wear hats. Case in point: Meghan Markle’s appearance at Wimbledon this year. The Duchess of Sussex was seen holding a white sun hat while watching the match from the royal box. According to Wimbledon’s website, the royal box has a strict “smart” dress code and “ladies are asked not to wear hats, as they tend to obscure the vision of those seated behind them.”
