Queen Elizabeth was at Newbury Racecourse yesterday to cheer on the debut race of her filly, Ring of Truth. Her Majesty stood out in her magenta sailor style hat with lavender-grey straw underbrim, trimmed with slim straw leaves, white fabric tulips and faux pearl berries.
The first time we saw this hat (on the same day, one year ago), I was wowed by the colour and underwhelmed by the spindly embellishment. A year has only intensified these sentiments and the sight of this hat today left me desperate to send it for a trimming renovation. Thankfully, Queen Elizabeth’s horse fared better than the lacklustre trim on her hat, placing second in today’s race.
