Queen Elizabeth visited Aylesford to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Royal British Legion Industries village. For this visit, she repeated a deep purple felt hat with split crown and upturned kettle brim trimmed with a felt bow and trio of pompoms.
I’m still a great fan of this ensemble’s saturated jewel tone and the lovely contrast of textures between the the wool coat, silk dress, sleek velvet felt hat and pompom trim. That being said… I’m still not a fan of the hat’s shape (nor the lack of collar on the coat). On its last outing, I described the hat as a bit ‘ponderous’ and I’m afraid, this outing did not give me a change of heart.
It has been a year and a half since we last saw this hat- did today’s outing change your thoughts on it?
