Queen Elizabeth made her traditional appearance at the Braemar Gathering in Aberdeenshire today, accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales. The Queen, who is patron of these Highland Games, looked relaxed and quite amused as she braved the weather to cheer on participants in a variety of brawny and entertaining events.
The Queen repeated a rosy beige wool hat with a slightly diagonal crown, flat brim and feather poof on the side. I like how the coordinating ribbon wrapped around the crown gives subtle texture and the feathers add a touch of fun and whimsy. This hat is not in a strong colour but I think the details all combine to make it quite a lovely hat. It’s quite a great shape for Her Majesty as well, don’t you think?
