Queen Elizabeth and The Duchess of Cornwall were in Essex today to open the new Bernardo’s headquarters in Barkingside (Bernardo’s is one of the largest children’s charities in the UK). The Queen repeated her textured cream hat with blue bow loop trim. It’s not my favourite hat but the photos today show how beautifully it pairs with her Stewart Parvin designed coat. Camilla did not wear a hat but instead, chose a new coat dress designed by Bruce Oldfiend who was himself, a ward of this charity throughout his childhood. I thought this was a lovely touch on Camilla’s part.
