Hat From the Past

Royal Hatsto this day, 101 years ago, that saw Queen Alexandra visit the Handley Page Aeroplane manufacturing facility at Radlett Aerodrome in Hertfordshire to see women at work on planes during WWI. Her hat is an interesting one, with bulbous crown, saddle brim, large Edwardian feather plume and veil pulled low over her face (something Queen Alexandra did in later years to hide the inevitably visible signs of ageing).
