Queen Elizabeth visited Lord’s Cricket Ground for the first day of the second test between England and Australia today. To meet members of the Marlybourne Cricket Club along with players from the English and Australian teams, the Queen repeated a bright turquoise blue straw hat with a diagonal crown, side split brim and side straw bow. The hat is fine although I’m not a fan of the white figure eight buckle (even though it coordinates with the circle motif on the Queen’s dress and jacket) and the side split on the brim seems unnecessarily fussy. My quibbles about this hat aside, I do think the turquoise blue is a spectacular colour on Her Majesty. What do you think of this hat?
