During Queen Elizabeth’s annual late summer residency at Balmoral Castle, we often see something we don’t see many other times of the year- her church hats! Back on September 23, her Sunday hat was of particular interest as I believe it is new:
Covered in the same raspberry wool as her coat, the hat looks to be trimmed with a spray of fuchsia feathers on one side. The colour is marvelous on Her Majesty and there looks to be some textural contrast on the brim edging and hatband. It also looks to be off the same block in Rachel Trevor Morgan’s studio as this familiar blue one:

This past Sunday, the Queen repeated her royal blue hat with hourglass/teardrop shaped crown trimmed with a large blue and black feather. Not my favourite millinery shape in Her Majesty’s closet, the hat is redeemed slightly by it’s wonderful colour.
