Queen Elizabeth attended the polo final of ‘The Al Habtoor Royal Windsor Cup’ at the Guards Polo Club near Windsor yesterday. She wore a vibrant royal blue textured straw hat with slightly sloped crown, cartwheel brim and large navy and black looped bow. We have seen this hat on the Queen a few times and while it’s a lovely hat, it somehow doesn’t capture my fancy. I’m not sure why. What do you think of this hat?

oh dear. I think it looks as though she walked through a spider web, and I’m not a fan of those Dr Suess crowns on some of her hats. I’d like to see her go back to more feminine styles.
Kind of looks like the weave in the white one from Ascot this yr you did not like. I need to look back at the 2 side by side to compair the weave patterns – but my mind went to that recent white hat soon as I saw this one.
The weave gives the hat a fascinating texture.
It is a very beautiful hat. This colour of blue is very strong but The Queen looks very good in it.
Another great fashion choice from Her Majesty. I love the shade of blue, and the choices of hat and brooch.
Yes I agree with all you gals. This is such a nice hat on the Queen. I really like the printed part on the hat and the nice bow on the side.
Oh, I love this hat, the shape and the texture. This shade of blue frames her face beautifully and complements her sparkling blue eyes as well as her complexion and white hair. She looks like a beautiful jewel. Marvelous!
I also love this hat. I really like the pattern in the straw. I am also amazed how you are able to tell us all the times The Queen has worn each hat, and show another hat made of the same kind of star-printed straw. You have an amazing memory for hats!
