Princess Anne was in Ypres, Belgium yesterday to take part in the handover of the banners of The Life Guards and The Blues and Royals at Saint George’s Memorial Church (a church built in memory of the more than 500,000 British and Commonwealth troops who perished in the three battles fought for the Ypres Salient during World War I). For this event, she topped her very chic teal and navy military styled coat with her brown fur pillbox hat. I think the pairing is successful, particularly for this event, and gives this hat, a piece that Anne has worn for years (long before wearing fur was controversial), an updated new lease on life. What do you think?
