Queen Elizabeth opened a new facility at the ‘Coram’ children’s charity in London this morning. Established in 1739 by Thomas Coram, the charity was the first home in London to care for abandoned babies and vulnerable children. For this visit, the queen repeated her teal blue wool hourglass shaped cloche hat trimmed with black velvet flowers and leaves.
We saw this hat less than a month ago so there’s not much to say about it except that it’s great to see the teal, white, purple and black print of the dress of this ensemble (see gallery on the right, above). I also find the frequency of this repeat a bit unusual- usually, the Queen spaces out repeated wearings further.
