I don't know how many of you saw the news story about William and Kate initially not wearing a cowboy hat in Calgary on their tour of Canada. I can only assume that the cowboy hat was not silly looking enough for Kate, but today I received a letter from Kate so I can put all my readers minds at rest on the subject. I'm sharing it with you now:
Dear Demon Flash Bandit,
My mother in law speaks very highly of you and your blog so I thought I would use your considerable influence to set the record straight. I did think the cowboy hat was too plain for my taste. I did not mean to hurt any one's feelings which is why both William and myself wore cowboy hats later on. However, I would have worn the hat in the beginning if it had been my style--you know maybe a peacock beanie baby on top surrounded by beanie baby mice. That is a hat I would be proud to wear. I'm sorry you think my hats are silly, but I put a lot of thought into them. I'm not saying my thoughts are good, but they are thoughts. Thanks for getting this little mistake straightened out. Best wishes from William and myself!
I suppose there is no accounting for taste, but I bet the royal accountants do get tired of sending checks to pay for those silly hats Kate wears.
