Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh were at Church House this morning to officially inaugurate the tenth General Synod of the Church of England. The Queen marked the occasion with a new hat in heathered charcoal grey straw.
With a tall, fluted crown with domed top, the hat was simply trimmed with a charcoal and cream double bow and a stripe of cream piping around the edge of the cartwheel brim.
I really like the contrasting colour scheme of this piece and the restrained use of trim is very effective. I’m less keen on the shape of the hat’s crown which feels slightly too tall and sets its overall proportion off.
