Queen Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh visited Southwark Cathedral in London this morning to view a new stained glass window that was created by Leifur Breidfjord to mark the Queen’s Damond Jubilee. The Queen repeated her purple wool felt Homburg style hat, a hat style we’ll learn more about next week. The shape of this crown (characteristic to this style of hat) with its two ‘bumps’ is not my favourite shape but I do like this hat on the Queen. There’s something about the slightly tilted brim, the narrow black band around the crown and the beautiful shade of aubergine that just works. I know we’ve seen this hat before but I’m curious what the rest of you think about it.
