Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh attended The Royal Marines 350th Anniversary Beating Retreat at the Royal Horse Guards Parade yesterday. For this event, the Queen repeated her lime green hat and coat that first appeared during her Irish tour in 2012. This hat, with a large and slightly raised straw brim, features an overlay of gold lace on the diagonal crown and a large gold feather trim. It is not my favourite of the Queen’s hats- while the shape and proportion are great, the combination of gold lace with this particular shade of green does not quite work for me.
Designer: I believe this was made by Angela Kelly

Prince Philip looked handsome in miltary uniform and cap. He still cuts quite a dashing figure at nearly 92 years old, doesn’t he?
