Princess Anne and Vice Admiral Timothy Laurence rode in today’s royal carriage procession in the second carriage, joined by the York Princesses. Princess Anne repeated an embellished, vibrant turquoise trilby hat I don’t think we’ve seen since its debut six years ago.
This straw design features a characteristic short trilby brim, upturned around the back and downward facing in the front, with a tall, pinched crown trimmed with a mass of different varieties of turquoise feathers at the front.Embed from Getty Images
The feather trim is a bit haphazard and madly off in all directions for my taste- I think it would benefit with a haircut and slight shift onto the side of the hat. Feather quibbles aside, the colour is glorious on Anne and I love the cheeky interplay between the hat’s short brim and the raised collar on her jacket.
