Prince Fumihito and Princess Kiko of Akishino wrapped up a twelve day tour to Zambia and Tanzania yesterday. For their July 3 meeting with Tanzanian president Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete , Princess Kiko wore a white hat with squared crown and gently up rolled brim. It looks like the crown was trimmed in a wide ribbon with some sort of flower on one side. It’s a larger scale hat than we usually see on Kiko; while it is still a little bland for my taste, it’s good to see some variation on Japanese royal hats.
