Royal Hats to this day in 1897 when Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee with a service of thanksgiving outside St. Paul’s Cathedral. The hats are difficult to see in detail but one thing is clear- the occasion was well celebrated!

  1. What a magnificent cloak/coat HM was wearing! Not sure if this is the same hat, however.

  2. Perhaps they could do it because people weren’t distracted by their phones…..;)

    Thank you, HQ, for the previous week’s coverage of Ascot. So many interesting and lovely hats.
