Two of the loveliest winter royal hats I can think of were worn by a pair of queens who are each, individually, rather infrequent hat wearers. I am talking about the “wave” hats worn by Queen Sonja of Norway and Queen Paola of Belgium – wool felt hats with dramatic wave shaped, upturned brims. The striking shape of this molded felt brim is so unique and interesting that I cannot resist asking, Who Wore It Best?
