Queen Elizabeth attended St. Mary Magdalene Church near her Sandringham estate Sunday morning, joined by a handful of family members. For this outing, the Queen repeated her magenta silk wool covered boater hat with lavender-grey straw brim base, trimmed with grey straw twisting leaves, white silk tulips and silver-stemmed faux winter berries.
The colour remains wonderful on Her Majesty (and is so cheery on a bleary winter day) and that unexpected contrast of colour and texture on the underside of the brim adds such dimension and lightness. I wish the trim was a little more streamlined but even that has grown on me. The Queen wears so many hats with upturned or sidesweeping brims, it’s nice to see her in straight boater every once in a while.Embed from Getty Images
