I'm absolutely fascinated by the hats the ladies who attended the royal wedding wore. We've seen all types and styles.
The closest we, as Americans, seem to come to this tradition is Derby Day, in Kentucky
In honor of the tradition of ladies' hats, I share with you a photograph of my great-grandmother, Mary Frances (Allen) Henry. My birth-mom said that we should not be deceived by the sweet smile on my granny's face. Evidently, Mary Frances could be hard as nails.
