  1. Princess Marina was so chic. I wonder what colour she was wearing that day. I also love the Nanny’s hat as she carries baby Princess Alexandra to the car.

  2. There’s actually a lot more to this hat than meets the eye. Wonderful fluttering feathers are present here, but alas, all too briefly, starting at 0:53.

    • Brilliant. I haven’t found any photos of Queen Mary but the new Queen Elizabeth also had a smart hat.
