Queen Elizabeth visited the Royal Air Force Club in London today where she took part in commemorations of the club’s 100th anniversary, opening the new wing, unveiling a series of newly-commissioned artworks (including a new portrait of herself!), viewing a beautiful new stained-glass window by Jo Salter, Trustee and first British female jet pilot and meeting with past and present members. For this engagement, she repeated her sky blue hat with hourglass curved crown and gently sideswept brim (straw on top, the same wool silk as the crown and coat on the bottom) trimmed with cut green feathers, gold sprigs, large amber glass beads and small blue heather flowers.
In Her Majesty’s sea of medium blue hats I’ll admit- this is not my favourite. While I still find the crown shape bit clunky and the trim a bit overenthusiastic, the colour is lovely and the combination of green feathers on the blue felt is really charming.
