On Friday, Princess Anne was in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Beaumont-Hamel, the First World War battle that saw hundreds of Newfoundland soldiers slaughtered on the French battlefield in the opening day of the traumatic Battle of the Somme. For this event, the Princess Royal surprised in a new hat. A pale blue saucer, the design is trimmed with a slim bow and feathers on the crown as well as a pair of blue applique straw leaves placed on the underside of the raised brim. It’s an entirely new style and shape for Anne that works very well for her, thanks to the scale (it’s just the right size for her). While I wish it was a more saturated blue, I’m happy to see Anne in a stylish hat.
Previously Worn: This is a new hat
