Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to this day in 1897 when Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee with a service of thanksgiving outside St. Paul’s Cathedral. The hats are difficult to see in detail but one thing is clear- the occasion was well celebrated!

Hats aside- looking back at such spectacles, I’m amazed how they were organized without the modern communication devices we so rely on today!

Hats From the Past

Royal Hats to this day, 200 years ago, when a princess was born at Kensington Palace who would, ultimate, change the course of the British Monarchy. Remembered more for the immense industrial, scientific, cultural and political change that came during the era of her reign than for her fashion, we celebrate the bicentennial of Queen Victoria’s birth today with a look at a handful of her hats.

Hat From The Past

Royal Hats to 130 years ago this year to this snap of Queen Victoria with her Indian born servant, Abdul Karim. The hat and turban are magnificent, as was, by remaining accounts, the relationship these two shared.

 Have any of you seen the recently released film “Victoria and Abdul”?
