Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to a pair of hats, worn 96 years ago. Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark and Princess Alice of Battenberg might not be familiar faces but their youngest son certainly is. Princess Alice’s wide brimmed hat with tall crown and wide hatband certainly is a beauty.

Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to Trooping the Colour 33 years ago. There’s a mix of hats here that seem pretty standard for their wearers and the fashion of the times…. except for the Duchess of Gloucester’s wide plaited headband at the far left. That one nearly defies description.
