Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to September 16, 1950. Prince George Valdemar of Denmark (eldest son of Prince Axel) married Anne, Viscountess Anson, daughter of the Hon. John Bowes-Lyon and Hon. Fenella Hepburn-Stuart-Forbes-Trefusis (yes, THOSE Bowes Lyons. Anne was a first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II). The ceremony at Glamis Castle saw the bride in a most wonderful calot hat with curled feather trim.

Hat From The Past

Princess Kiko celebrates her 55th birthday tomorrow. Here’s a peek back in the depths of her hat closet to a natty navy Breton with domed crown and butterfly trim she wore 30 years ago. It’s fun to see her in saturated colour and a more dramatic hat shape.

Royal Hats to June 1960, 61 years ago, and a trio of Scandinavian princesses visiting the Magic Kingdom in California. I wonder if Princess Astrid of Norway, Princess Margaretha of Sweden and Crown Princess Magarethe of Denmark planned their crisp navy and white ensembles?!
