Hats From the Past

Royal Hats 60 years ago to the December 19, 1961 christening of the now Earl of Snowdon. Princess Marina of Kent and Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, attended in a pair of very memorable pillboxes!

  1. They look like they have seen it all, they dressed the part, had fun shopping for the pillboxes
    and after the christening they want a sherry.

  2. The Countess of Athlone had some fab hats in her long life. I love that she took the bus around London to go shopping later in her later years; I just wish I could find the photo I saw of her once waiting at the bus stop (it probably was in some random book).

    Of course Marina looks chic as always.
