THE HATS

Chattanooga Times Free Press - Parade - - Royal Weddings -

Fancy hats are all the rage among the roy­als and the Bri­tish up­per class, from the queen’s sunny choice for Prince Wil­liam’s wed­ding to the fas­ci­na­tor, a type of very dec­o­ra­tive head­gear worn on fes­tive oc­ca­sions. The ec­cen­tric top­per—var­i­ously com­pared to a pret­zel, an oc­to­pus and a toi­let seat—worn by Princess Beatrice to her cousin Wil­liam’s wed­ding later sold at auc­tion, rais­ing £81,000 ($130,000) for char­ity.
