Hey! Look what day it is!
The day has finally arrived for the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Coverage starts in a few minutes.
I have several hats to share. I will do it in two posts.
First. How about some casual hats just for fun. Boy is the first one fun.
I ‘grammed this one and asked, “Too much?” Obviously not! Grammers loved it — going by comments.
Next up. Tudor Rose ballcap.
I am wrapping this up quickly. I know you are busy preparing to view the royal wedding coverage. We are too!
Oh, before I forget. I love the connection between Windsor Castle and the Tudors, hence my Tudor Rose ballcap.
Windsor Castle is an ancient castle dating back to the time of William the Conqueror and a place Anne Boleyn visited on many occasions.
The motte (earthen mound) of Windsor was constructed by William the Conqueror in about 1080, and the castle has been added to and remodelled almost continually ever since. Edward IV began St. George’s Chapel, which was finished by Henry VIII, who was buried there along with his third wife Jane Seymour. The Old Chapel, at the east end of St. George’s, was remodelled by Henry VII. The Old Chapel eventually became the Albert Memorial Chapel after the death of Queen Victoria’s husband.
Henry VIII also built a new gate for the lower ward, now known as the Henry VIII gate, and is the exit for tourist visitors to the Castle. Mary I built the Military Knights’ Houses in the lower ward. Henry VII also built a new range to the west of the State Apartments. Elizabeth I added the Long Gallery to Henry VII’s new apartments, and this area now houses the Royal Library.
The North Terrace was originally constructed by Henry VIII, although it was later widened.
In my next post I will show you the hat I am wearing for this most festive and important occasion — the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle!
Thanks everyone. Stayed tuned! xoxoxo
