‘New’ Hat From the Past #41

Royal Hats to October 31, 1996 and a white picture hat worn on a state visit to Thailand. This hat seems unusual to me not only for its large scale and extra wide hatband but for the white beaded lace applique on the side – a much fussier trim than we usually see on Queen Elizabeth’s hats. Do any of you remember this particular design?
