Princess Hisako of Takamado is wrapping up a visit to Ireland to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Japan-Ireland diplomatic relations. Last Friday, she visited Irish President, Michael D Higgins and his wife Sabina at their official residence, Aras an Uachtarain in Dublin. She repeated a natural straw hat with short, kettle brim and a straight-sided crown with domed top. The hat is simply trimmed in a slim knotted hatband in the same fabric as her suit and a pair of orange feathers at the side. Here is a great side view of the hat in the Irish Times, taken at a visit to a children’s hospice in Dublin later that day.
Previously Worn: July 30, 2016
Previously Worn: I believe this hat is new
Thoughts about these two Imperial royal hats worn in Ireland?
