The first of this season’s summer Garden Parties kicked off today in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.
Queen Elizabeth hosted the event in her repeated muted jade straw hat with straight-sided, domed top crown and short cartwheel brim, trimmed with silk flowers and a straw twist. It’s this hat’s second outing since its Ascot debut last year and stands out, not for its go-to shape for the Queen, but for its very pretty colour.

Countess of Wessex repeated her natural straw saucer hat with lattice open woven brim, trimmed with a large coral feathers and tan crim twists. It’s a great hat on Sophie and pairs so well with her red frock.
Earl of Wessex and Duke of York both looked dapper in their black silk plush top hats
