Princess Alexandra visited the Royal Star & Garter Home in Surbiton

On January 24, 2019, Princess Alexandra attended the Royal Star and Garter Home in Surbiton on their Founders’ Day celebrations. The charity, of which The Princess is President, is celebrating its 103rd anniversary this year. The Royal Star & Garter was founded in 1916 to care for the severely injured young men returning from the battlegrounds of the First World War. Last year, both the Surbiton and Solihull Homes won awards for the high quality of their dementia care.

  1. Her coat appears to be velvet in a gorgeous shade of burgundy. Yummy! And I love her softly-hued makeup.

    Don't know why she kept her hat on indoors, though, and it doesn't coordinate very successfully with the scarf. It's always a delight to see Princess Alexandra, though.

    1. Si elle enlève son chapeau elle a être toute décoiffée. Ces dames royales n’enlèvent jamais leurs chapeaux.

    2. Myriam, you are correct of course -- what threw me is that the hat (which is very beautiful) is a type that clearly, I think, is intended for outdoors use, to keep the wearer warm in harsh winter weather. It looks decidedly odd indoors (as do the heavy boots,for that matter).

      If I had been Princess Alexandra (fantasizing bigtime here :-D), I'd have departed from the normal royal way of doing "hats" in this instance, and discreetly asked to be directed to a restroom where I would have removed the hat and given my hair a quick bit of attention. Voila!

  2. I am sure it is warm, but I'm not a fan of the hat.

  3. I love her hat! It's beautiful and if it made her feel confident and comfortable that's what counts! She clearly makes an effort here. Ladies do not need to remove a head covering indoors.

  4. I wonder which animal was killed to get HRH her hat.
