I recently came across a hat, designed by Simone Mirman and worn by Queen Elizabeth, that I do not recall seeing before. The fine quilted stitching, blue star and red tab make it a distinctive and beautifully executed piece. The photographer’s note says it was worn in Morocco – I suspect, on the same October 1980 tour as the red poppy hat we looked at a few weeks ago, but I can’t find any record of this. So, I turn to your photo archives and encyclopedic memories, dearest readers, for help. Do any of you recall when this hat was worn?
