British Royals Celebrate School Bicentenary

Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Reed’s School in Cobham yesterday to celebrate the school’s bicentenary. During their tour, The Queen and Duke viewed an art exhibition and robotics demonstration. For this event, Queen Elizabeth repeated her textured cream hat with blue bow loop trim. This hat still looks like a papier mâché sculpture to me but I suppose that when you wear as many wool and straw hats as she does, something different is a welcome change.

  1. I do like a nice change in texture now and again, but I think this looks a bit too much like a raffia-weaving project, and it isn’t in a redeemingly attractive colour, so not a real success for me.

  2. The papier mâché effect is similar to another of RTM’s hats for the Queen:

    Since the decision probably was made to differentiate yesterday’s hat from all of the Queen’s similarly colored and textured hats made out of the coat fabric, I suppose this papier mâché hat might be considered a necessary change.

    • I think this is the hat you are referring to. You make such an interesting observation that Rachel Trevor Morgan is indeed playing with texture for the Queen’s hats.

      • Here are two more Rachel Trevor Morgan hats with texture. The texture is woven in the pattern in the straw (I suppose that technically makes them straw hats) but it creates an interesting effect.

      • These hats with the different weaves are so interesting. I like the colored ones better because I think Queen Elizabeth looks so nice in bright colors.
