Queen Elizabeth attended Sunday Church service at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh yesterday morning in a repeated blue straw hat. The hat follows a familiar shape with tall, slightly flared and sloped crown with front indent contrasted with a moderately sized, flat brim. Trimmings include a layered silk hatband in the same pale blue and a spray of handmade silk peony blooms and rose buds in varied shades of pink.
Yesterday’s outing showed a decent view of this ensemble’s pink floral dress, a connection that puts the hat’s pink flowers in context and shows just how perfectly they in. Some of Her Majesty’s hats need to be viewed closeup to appreciate all the detail and while this hat is beautiful at close view, I think it works even better further away, seen in relation to the entire ensemble.
What do you think of this hat on this, its third outing?
