‘New’ Hat From the Past #42

Royal Hats to October 21, 1988 and a bright fuschsia pink jacquard silk toque hat worn during a state visit to Spain. The bright colour and unique shape of this one makes it a standout design and leaves me surprised that I’d not seen it before. It his one familiar to you?

‘New’ Hat From the Past #41

Royal Hats to October 31, 1996 and a white picture hat worn on a state visit to Thailand. This hat seems unusual to me not only for its large scale and extra wide hatband but for the white beaded lace applique on the side – a much fussier trim than we usually see on Queen Elizabeth’s hats. Do any of you remember this particular design?

‘New’ Hat From the Past #40

Royal Hats to October 11, 1982 and a very pretty blue hat worn in Australia. We often see hats with lattice woven brims but seldom do we see one where this pattern is on the crown- a unique touch on this design, one I don’t remember seeing before.

‘New’ Hat From the Past #39

Royal Hats For Friday the 13th today, I thought a black hat would be fitting- imagine my surprise to find this design, worn October 30, 1994 on a visit to Russia. Queen Elizabeth seldom wears black hats for regular engagements and this design, with upswept brim and yellow houndstooth-esque patterned hatband, seems like an unusual choice for a state visit. Do any of you remember this hat?

‘New’ Hat From the Past #38

Royal Hats to October 20, 1988 and a cream straw veiled bumper hat with interesting gingham pinwheel/back ruffle worn on a trip to Spain. If you look closely, there also appears to be a layer of the peach gingham under the brim- an unusual element we don’t often see on Her Majesty’s hats. This design was a new one for me- do any of you remember seeing it before?

‘New’ Hat From the Past #37

Royal Hatstwenty-five years to October 20, 1992 and a graphic statement hat worn on a visit to Germany. This design, with stacked blue and green bumper brims, packs quite a wallop of visual punch. It is another stick-in-your-mind hat that I’m surprised not to have seen before – I imagine it will be familiar to many of you but thought it was way too much fun not to revisit.
