The Countess of Wessex attended a Service of Hope service yesterday at Southwark Cathedral in memory of those lost and injured during the recent attacks at London Bridge (after the service she walked to nearby Borough Market which has recently reopened). For these events, she repeated her black straw pillbox variation with black feather trim on the side. The feather trim makes this piece, I think, and it’s great to get a much better view of it than we saw at this hat’s debut at Easter.
Previously Worn: April 16, 2017
This hat marks just the third time the Countess has stepped out in a hat this year, frequency that will no doubt change with Trooping the Colour today and Ascot coming up next week. In the meantime, what do you think of this straw pillbox, now that we’ve had a good look at it?
