Tributes for Prince Philip have continued pouring in this week. While not officially a tribute, Lady Pamela Hicks’ memories of the queen and late Duke of Edinburgh provide a wonderful view into their lives and is well worth a watch. And the hats- well, there are some beauties.
Amidst the stressful realities of life during a pandemic, lighthearted anecdotes are a welcome distraction. Today’s millinery giggle is courtesy of Lady Pamela Hicks.
