A few years ago I saw a picture of Katherine in an Australian Outback hat. I have been trying desperately to find the same hat with the long low brim that she wore. My head is Medium sized and the hat seemed to be narrow with a long low brim in the front and back. HELP !
Tuesday 26th of April 2016
Donna I bought one similar that I've never worn and am trying to sell. I've posted it on Facebook shop Kate's closet a couple of times contact me if you like.
