After attending church yesterday at the Church of St Peter & St Paul in West Newton near their Sandingham Estate, Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh took part in a ‘walkabout’, meeting members of the public gathered to greet them. The Queen wore a repeated vibrant red coat, paired with a new hat. The modified cloche, covered in the same red wool crepe as Her Majesty’s coat, featured a tall, squared crown, and short, downward facing brim. Finished off with black and red bands around the base of the crown, black side bow loops and two curling red feathers, the high contrast hat coordinates well with the black and red print of the Queen’s dress. While my verdict is out on the shape, the trim is tightly executed (no feather explosions here) and the hat is all the better for it.
Previously Worn: This hat is new
