Members of the British Royal Family attended Sunday Service yesterday at Crathie Kirk, close to Balmoral Castle. The Queen, who stopped to chat with onlookers outside the church, wore a hat and suit we have not seen in seven years. The hat, in the same teal green fabric as her coat, featured a rolled brim and squared crown; the wide green silk sash and side bow coordinated with the brim on Her Majesty’s dress and jacket. We do not often see the Queen in this shade of green and it is wonderful on her. I love the pleated detail on the hat’s sash and the slightly squared shape of the crown sets it apart from other hats of similar scale in the Queen’s millinery closet. What do you think of this seldom worn teal green hat?
