to June 21, 1962 and the arrival of Princess Marina and her daughter, Princess Alexandra, to Royal Ascot. I adore the shape and austerity of Princess Marina’s straw upswept design and must concede that Princess Alexandra’s floral helmet/turban is one of the most attractive iterations of this odd shape I can remember. I’d be remiss here not to also mention the striking resemblance between mother and daughter- quite remarkable.
Thanks for sharing current royal hats while I’m away from the blog- you can do so again today in the comments.
