to sixteen years ago today and a British royal state visit to Norway. Queen Elizabeth’s pink and purple straw bucket/cloche hybrid hat by Frederick Fox made a memorable statement…. if you look closely at Queen Sonja’s classic white and navy straw design, you’ll see it had a larger brim, here on its first outing, than it does now (jump over to this post for its most recent outing earlier this month for Norwegian National Day). Which version of Sonja’s hat do you prefer?
