Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to this day, 50 years ago, which saw Princess Alexandra enjoy a bird’s eye view of Toronto and open a fashion exhibition at the Royal Ontario Museum. While the back bow on this helmet/turban is a stretch, I can’t even begin to imagine the purpose of those peepholes.

  1. I think this hat sits too high on her head but she is always a favourite, whatever she wears.
    I wonder if you can raise a photo of the hat she wore for her “going away” outfit after her wedding? I remember it as a pillbox placed more to the back of her head with a large bow sitting above her collar. In a day when we had lots of hat-wearing occasions, it was copied widely.
