I’m sure you all join me extending our deepest sympathy to Queen Elizabeth and her family as they grieve his loss.

Commentary and discussion about hats feels unnecessary today. Comments are left open for messages of condolence.

Hat From the Past

Royal Hatsto this day, 60 years ago. Fresh from a holiday and participation in the Red Cross Training program in Norway, Princess Margrethe of Denmark arrived at Victoria Station en route to her 21st birthday party at the Danish Embassy in London in a brimmed hat.

We’ll pop into her hat closet for an inventory next week.

 

Hats From the Past

Royal Hats to April 1944 and a wonderful snap caught at an 18th birthday celebration featuring a fascinating pair of hats. Queen Mary’s usual toque is replaced here by a jaunty design with upfolded brim trimmed with large flowers on the side. Princess Elizabeth’s pleated cap with visor brim has such a ‘military uniform’ vibe that one must look twice to see it’s not such.
