Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh arrived in Northern Ireland yesterday for a short, two-day visit. The Queen made a subtle nod to the emerald isle, repeating her pale green coat and matching straw hat.

I suppose that not all feathers last forever but it feels to me like this haircut has removed most of the character from this hat. Here is a closer comparison:
