Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh attended Blackburn Cathedral for the Royal Maundy Service this morning. The Queen was not to be missed in a new magenta hat with flat crown and brim trimmed with lavender-grey thin leaves and white tulips. I liked the colour contrast on the underside of the brim (in the same lavender-grey as the leaves) but was disappointed by the rest. While I can overlook the too-bright colour, the awful choice and placement of those spindly leaves and sad, wilted tulips makes this hat fall flat for me. This hat is another case of “ruined by bad trimmings”, I’m afraid. What do you think?
Designer: Angela Kelly. It is another one of her “flat brim” hats
Previously Worn: This is a new hat
