Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall attended the installation of the new Archbishop of Canterbury today. For this historic service at Canterbury Cathedral, Camilla repeated her Philip Treacy designed royal purple wide brimmed, feathered hat. This hat must be one of her favourites- she has previously worn it on Christmas Day at Sandringham, on a visit to Denmark last year, for the Commonwealth Observance Services in 2012 and in 2010, and for the Emir of Qatar’s state visit in 2010.
I love this hat on Camilla- the angled brim and vibrant colour look so great on her. I do however wonder- how many times should a royal wear a hat before it’s retired? Should this one stay in Camilla’s wardrobe or should it be retired?
