to this day, thirteen years ago, when Princess Mary returned to her home nation for her first visit since becoming crown princess of Denmark nine months earlier. I’m not sure the floppy shape of her black and white picture hat wasn’t the best topper for her sleekly tailored coat, although the graphic stripes make a punchy style statement. Perhaps the hat would work with a simpler, less formal frock?
50 years ago to March 30, 1968 when a radiant young Princess Beatrix (she was expecting Prince Friso) and Prince Claus visited Flevoland. I can’t help but think her hat is a warning against overuse of pinking shears.
thirty years to March 25, 1988 and the Duchess of Kent in a prim pink straw boater with printed silk hatband for a visit with the Duke to St. Albans.
40 years ago on this day when a beloved queen wore a signature halo brimmed hat in the most glorious shade of cobalt blue velvet complete with coordinating ostrich feather poof. Simply divine.
