Jordan Royals Bid Farewell to Duke of Wellington

The funeral of Arthur Valerian Wellesley, 8th Duke of Wellington, was held today at Stratfield Saye Church in Hampshire. Among the mourners in attendance were Princess Sarvath  and Prince El Hassan bin Talal of Jordan. Princess Sarvath wore a close fitting turban-style hat in black fur while Prince El Hassan wore a Papakha hat in grey Karakul sheep’s wool. It is not often that we see royal men in such hats and I thought this one was memorably fitting for the occasion.
