Princess Anne, The Princess Royal, hosted the “Not Forgotten Association Garden Party” for injured former servicemen and women at Buckingham Palace today. For this event, she wore a cream and navy straw hat. Two toned hats can be tough to pull off but this piece, with a navy crown and cream brim edged in navy piping, is well balanced. Princess Anne`s hats tend to have smallish brims and restrained trimmings- the larger scale of this piece looks great on her and the mix of feathers and straw bow loops brings the hat to life. This hat will not our annual list of favourites but it`s a lovely hat on Anne (and certainly, a vast improvement on the first hat she wore for several decades with this coat).
What do you think of Princess Anne`s two toned garden party hat?
