Queen Elizabeth’s Holyrood week in Scotland continued yesterday with a visit to Gorgie City Farm in Edinburgh. For this event, she repeated the same split crown design in cream straw and lime silk wool that she wore on the last day of Royal Ascot two weeks ago. The hat is trimmed simply with a spray of silk orchids and a slim green bow at the side
Today’s photos show great views of this hat’s complex shape. While impeccably finished, I find the shape and mix of materials splitting the crown awkward. The colour is wonderfully fresh and zing-y but the shape doesn’t do it for me.
It seems that Olive the duck might agree.
Do these views change your thoughts about this hat?
