It’s that time of year to think about packing away one’s straw hats until next year, and bringing out the felt designs. The Duchess of Cornwall seems to already have made the switch, appearing for church in Scotland a few weeks ago in a taupe percher beret trimmed with pheasant feathers (a hat that made its debut last summer, pictured below). This is not Camilla’s only hat in this style- she also has twins in electric blue and red.
The design is simple and classic enough that multiples are understandable, especially for a royal with a practical approach to dressing. I find the very similar trim a little surprising and wonder if the hat was specifically designed to wear with tartan outfits in Scotland? My favourite is the red version- a colour that Camilla hardly ever wears yet looks stunning on her. In this trio, which hat do you think suits her best?
Feel free to use the comments to share any hats worn today- Queen Elizabeth is scheduled to pay a visit to the Army and Navy Club in London to celebrate the Centenary of the Women’s Royal Naval Service and the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps.
