Yesterday morning, Queen Elizabeth paid a visit to the Honourable Artillery Company, one of the oldest military organizations in the world. The Queen is the longest serving Captain-General of the Company and today’s visit included unveiling a bust in her honour.
For this honour, the Queen repeated one of my favourite hats in cornflower blue straw with a squared crown and slightly raised brim on one side. Since wearing it first during the Diamond Jubilee, this hat has become an iconic piece for the Queen and one I never tire of seeing her wear (and I see it several times a day!). The colour is brilliant on Her Majesty and the subtle brim curve and crown shape give an interesting spin on the classic style. The trim is Rachel Trevor Morgan at her refined best and I adore how the black and white feather alstroemeria blossoms tie so perfectly with the floral print on the Queen’s dress.
