  1. Thanks for including this photo HatQueen; it’s nice too look back on non-European royals as well, and this is a great hat!

  2. That is such a very different style from what we see her daughter-in-law wear. It reminds me of the sort of hat worn by the Queen Mother when she was Duchess if York.
