Thirty years ago today, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip toured a naval dockyard in San Diego during their visit to California. The Queen wore this nautically-themed suit and captain’s hat – an unusual hat shape for her. It’s a little too theme-y for me, although theme-y was pretty common in early 1980s fashion. For some reason, the whole ensemble reminds me of a Pearly Queen!

Kind of retro newsboy cap. In solid navy, I would TOTALLY wear this today. Awesome!
it’s a good thing the queen wears mostly solid colors now. This hurts my eyes.
We can almost see that this hat has a bow at the back of the same material.
Good observation- I hadn’t noticed that because the whole outfit is so busily patterned. I’m not sure that the bow makes this hat any better (or worse, for that matter!).
