Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh attended Sunday Service again this morning at Crathie Kirk in Aberdeenshire. En route to church, photographers caught a glimpse of the Queen in a turquoise straw hat trimmed with a cream band around the crown. We have not seen this hat in a decade and I was surprised to see it pop up out of the depths of the Queen’s millinery closet. That was until I realized that the designer of this hat, Philip Somerville, was laid to rest today. The Queen sent one of her ladies in waiting to attend the funeral and this appears to be her own, private tribute. Her Majesty paid the same sort of tribute to Frederick Fox last year- a lovely touch from an incredibly thoughtful woman.
