Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Falkirk today where they saw The Kelpies sculpture and officially named the canal that runs through the Helix development the Queen Elizabeth II Canal.
I think this is the most successful hat we’ve seen in this shape- the colour is beautiful on Her Majesty and the grey accents, which link with her dress, provide great contrast. The straw flowers are a different take on hat trim from what we normally see on the Queen’s hats and while very simple, they work. My reservations about the ensemble centre on the coat (the floral binding doesn’t work for me) but this doesn’t diminish the hat.
Previously Worn: this hat is new
