Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip visited Royal Holloway at University Of London in Egham yesterday. The Queen repeated a vibrant blue woven straw hat. I have long admired the colour of this hat and the pattern of the woven straw, but am not sure about the bow or the bulbous shape of the top of the hat.
Singing the registry gave us a view of the crown of this hat. I had long suspected the crown shape of this hat was similar to Angela Kelly’s other wrapped crown hats (see here) and this photo yesterday confirmed my suspicion. I think I would like this hat better with a simpler, flat top but the colour is magic on Her Majesty, who wears blue so very, very well.
