On April 21, Crown Princess Kiko wore a white silk covered pillbox on a visit to Ise Jingu’s Geku and Naiku for “Rikkoshi no Rei” rites. The next day, she wore a black silk covered pillbox to visit the mausoleums of Emperor Komei and Empress Eishō in Kyoto
Also on April 22, Princess Yoko of Mikasa attended the Spring Equinox Festival at Yasukuni Shrine in a white silk covered hat with very short brim.

A few more hats worn by Princess Kiko during the visit to Ise Shrine in Mie Prefecture
And to report the visit at the Imperial Palace upon their return to Tokyo on April 26
Mary looks great in the casual fedora. She could try this style for her more formal hats.
Always wonderful to see Alexandra, especially in such a sharp (new?) hat.
Does anyone know anything about Daniel’s hat? I assume it’s something traditional for this event. Interesting use of pleating and buckle with a top hat.
How fun to think of Ascot coming up soon, perhaps back to its full glory! Maybe we’ll see some of these designs.
