  1. The princess must have been a bigger fan of this unique hat than I am, since she wore it at least 2 other times:

  2. Surely all that fluff disqualifies it from being a pillbox! To me, the iconic flattened cylindrical shape has to be apparent for a true pillbox, and at least from the front this could be a turban or anything! Not disuputing that it’s very glamorous on Grace, though.
