If you look at women from other countries who attend funerals, they don’t wear black hats, but they don’t cover up. At Royal Family funerals, at least in the UK, they do. I thought you didn’t know, so I told you.”
Hwang Hee-doo, director of the Roh Moo-hyun Foundation, also wrote on his Facebook page on the same day, “Kim Gun-hee’s fishnet hat is an item worn only by the royal family… It seems that there also many unreasonable numbers to imitate Jacqueline.”
