Thanks I’m pleased to pass the reigns of Royal Hats to Jimbo today for another in the “Monday Multiples”- a series he first suggested two years ago! Welcome, Jimbo!
Look #1: Princess Anne attended the 2012 Cheltenham Festival in a pale green fedora and wonderfully patterned green and navy coat. She repeated this same combination three times – November 2014 in Ottawa, Canada; Christmas Day 2016; and again to the Cheltenham Festival THIS year, 2020!
Look #2: In April of 2014, the Princess Royal chose a new hat for the coat, this time a large navy hat with a huge feathers adorning it. Note the fabric covering the upper side of the brim. Now THAT’S a hat!
Royal Hats’ January 6, 2015 post included this hat in a poll which listed the least favourite Royal Hats of 2014. Princess Anne’s exotic chapeau received 119 votes (4.16%); Queen Maxima’s “antennae” fascinator took the 2014 prize with 390 votes!
Thanks for this fun comparison, Jimbo. I’m curious which hat others prefer most with this coat?
