The Duchess of Cornwall was at the Port of Dover yesterday to name and christen a new cruise ship for the Saga line, “Spirit Of Discovery”. For this event, she repeated a straw hat in suitably nautical navy and cream straw.
The hat features a wide cream straw brim with gentle upsweep and a tall asymmetrical crown with formed, curving indent. The crown is wrapped in a wide cuff of folded navy straw over which sits a slim, cream silk hatband that forms a knotted twist on the side. While it’s a piece we’ve seen many times, it’s still one with great scale, shape and contrast. It’s a really good royal summer hat that pairs really well with Camilla’s lace trimmed navy dress and beautiful pearl jewelry.
