to thirty-one years ago yesterday and a fabric-wrapped, maroon felt pillbox hat worn on a visit to Cumbria.
An announcement was made on Saturday from Kensington Palace that a statue of the late Princess of Wales will be commissioned this year by her sons. In honour of this year’s 20th anniversary of her death, I’m going to start including photos of Diana’s hats in these flashback posts. I understand that for some of you, she remains a polarising figure but I trust that comments about her, her former husband and his current wife will all remain respectful.
