We think we recognize her by her bright and sparkling blue eyes, the triple strand of pearls, that ever-present black purse, or her megawatt smile. In reality, we recognize her her by her hat.
Today, on the 87th birthday of Queen Elizabeth, I offer special thanks along with my celebratory congratulations. She is, after all, the first person we all think of when we hear the words “royal hat”. Happy Birthday, Ma’am.
