Royal Hatsnearly 53 years to June 15, 1966 when Princess Grace of Monaco wore a green and white silk floral trimmed turban to Ascot. Don’t you love the hat with those orange sunglasses?! SO mid 1960s!

I don’t expect there will be many hats paired with sunglasses today but will trust you’ll share and discuss them in my absence here in the comments!

Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to this day in 1959, fifty-nine years ago, to a shopping trip to London that saw Princess Grace of Monaco in a short brimmed, velvet turban/cloche. I’ve been unable to find a colour photograph taken this day- do any of you know what colour this hat was?

Hat From the Past

Royal Hats sixty-years ago this month to a white fez style hat with button trim worn by Grace Kelly to her wedding rehearsal at Monaco Cathedral. The combination of tailored suit, prim hat and sunglasses is rather chic, is it not?

Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to a famous day, sixty-one years ago tomorrow, which saw Grace Kelly arrive in the principality that would be her new home. She wore the most glamorous wide brimmed, organdie covered white hat and looked every inch the princess she would, a week later, officially become.

Royal Hats to this day in 1969 which saw Princess Grace in the headdress of a Chinese goddess for a costume ball in Monte Carlo. While undoubtedly over the top, it’s still magnificent.
