Queen Elizabeth officially took up her summer residence at Balmoral Castle today and appeared to inspect the Royal Scots Borderers soldiers outside the castle gates. The Queen repeated a lovely ice blue straw hat with a ruched crown and cartwheel brim trimmed with a silk band and large bloom. This is a very classic millinery shape for her Majesty but one that suits her very well. While I usually prefer her in stronger colours, this shade of blue was really lovely on her.
