Hats From the Past

Royal Hats110 years on this day back to the investiture of the Prince of Wales at Carnarvon Castle. I adore the contrasting statements between Queen Mary’s gigantic ostrich plumed hat and the 17-year-old prince’s streamlined gold coronet!

  1. Queen Mary is wearing some hat! Several ostriches must have been chilly that summer.
    I hate to admit however, being more interested in Carnarvon Castle in Wales; now that’s an impressive pile!
    Speaking of large hats, does “The Flying Nun” come to mind? Here Queen Mary is visiting Ireland in the same month, in possibly the same hat.

  2. The coronet is tiny, much smaller than Prince Charles’s I saw them together when the regalia of the Prince of Wales was on display in Cardiff at the National Museum of Wales
