The Duchess of Gloucester (née Birgitte Henriksen van Deurs) celebrates her 67th birthday today. One of the lesser known members of the British Royal Family, Birgitte’s role involves a lot of charity work and occasional support to the Queen at official engagements (garden parties, state dinners and so on). One of my favourite of Birgitte’s hats is this blue twisted straw toque hat she wore to open The Lawn Tennis Association’s new National Tennis Centre in London back in March 2007. The cornflower blue shade of this hat and beautiful coordinated coat makes me swoon.
