Queen Elizabeth was in Porstmouth yesterday for the Commissioning Ceremony of the new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth at HM Naval Base. For this event, she repeated her royal purple felt hat with upfolded kettle brim and dark purple velvet hatband, trimmed with silk irises and velvet leaves.
In a move we seldom see at public engagements, Queen Elizabeth removed her coat, giving us a peek at the hat in combination with this ensemble’s dress.
Previously Worn: Nov 24, 2016
Princess Anne accompanied her mother to this milestone event, dressed suitably in naval uniform completely with cap..
