Duchess of Gloucester Welcomes Home Troops

The Duchess of Gloucester attended the Homecoming Parade of the Adjutant General’s Corps yesterday at Ward Barracks in Bulford, Wiltshire (members of this regiment were returning from a tour of Afghanistan). For this welcome, Brigitte, who is Deputy Colonel-in-Chief of the Regiment, repeated a taupe straw beret hat. The last time she wore it, I criticized it for being too bland. Yesterday however, I thought it was a great choice for this particular engagement and coordinated very well with her chocolate coat.

  1. I am the opposite: I liked this beret the last time but with this outfit (which reads loden green on my monitor) it seems too much like camouflage. And while I love a good beret the little “stem” at the top of this one just is too acorn-ish for me.

    • I agree with you Caroline about the “stem.” The “stem” is what I do not like about this hat. I really like the hat other than that. The coat looks like a beautiful dark brown on my computer and I think it looks great with this hat. She looks very charming here to me.
