Last Friday, Princess Alexandra of Kent officially opened the new Bromsgrove Police and Fire Station. She looked characteristically elegant in a purple coat topped with a picture hat in a lighter shade of purple wool felt. The crown of this has is a little too tall for my liking but I adore the band around the crown, in the same shade as Princess Alexandra’s coat. The contrasting use of two shades of violet is so pretty on this hat, isn’t it?
