Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh arrived in Paris this morning to begin a 3-day state visit centered around the 70th Anniversary Of the D-Day landings tomorrow. The Queen emerged from the Eurostar in a different coat and hat than the ones she was wearing when left London,
The hat follows a traditional lampshade shape and is covered in the same white silk as Her Majesty’s coat and trimmed with a simple sash around the crown in the same silver print as her dress. The black piping on the sash and on the Queen’s coat is a beautifully contrasting detail that unifies the dress, coat and hat into a harmonious ensemble. I don’t usually like the Queen in white because it blends to much with her hair, but I thought this hat was so very striking on Her Majesty today.
Previously Worn: This is a new hat
It’s also so lovely to see the Queen in a short jacket instead of another one of the long coats she usually chooses! I’m curious, dear readers, to hear if you love this ensemble as much as I do (and if you don’t, why not!)
