Hat From the Past

Royal Hats  to 45 years ago today, when Princess Margriet of the Netherlands wore a straw hat with upfolded halo brim to open the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto.

    • Thanks, Dorie! It’s a lovely shade of pink and the video shows the hat is not a Breton (the brim of a Breton folds up all the way around the hat) but is actually, a Halo brim (a high fold on top that decreases down both sides of the hat).

  1. Yes, it is a Breton! I loved these–hope they return someday. (Uncharacteristic image of Princess Margaret; I would not have recognized her if I hadn’t known it was she. Nice to see her looking so happy.)
