to June 16, 1954, sixty-five years ago, when a young Queen Elizabeth appeared at Ascot in a saucer hat with fluted-edge crin brim and velvet crown. The star shape on the crown is a unique feature that sets it apart from all others- can you think of any other star shaped royal millinery?!
This hat ends this look back at past Ascot hats- I’ll be back tomorrow. If there are any other royal hats worn today, please share them in the comments below.
