Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall travelled to Malta today for the Commonwealth Heads of State Summit. The Queen touched down wearing her second new hat this week, this one made in the same pale blue bouclé as her coat.

The hat featured a squared crown with domed top and upfolded brim. Two navy silk roses at the side were its only trimming, providing contrast against the textured fabric.

Previously Worn: this hat is new
Queen Elizabeth has numerous other hats in this shape
, a shape that is a good proportion for her. There is something, however, about this piece that does not work for me. Perhaps it’s those navy flowers, which seem much better suited to a summer hat in natural straw? Maybe it is the fabric choice which seems too much of a good thing? I’m curious, dearest readers- do you share similar reservations about this hat?
