Thanks to Jimbo for providing the introduction and background research for this “Monday Multiples” series.
Jimbo’s Introduction: Queen Elizabeth wore this green coat with a coarsely woven straw hat in Sacramento, California in March of 1983. A few days later she wore it with a fantastic multi-colored hat, the feathers matching the dress worn under the coat. She repeated the second hat for Christmas later that year and for a visit to Canada in September of 1984. Both hats had veils on them, and both were very nice!
Look #1: Textured loden green straw hat with short brim, veil and ribbon hatband tied in a front bow, worn March 4, 1983 during a visit to California
Look #2: Printed felt Breton with rolled brim, veil and side feather spray worn for the Commonwealth Day and Christmas Day services in 1983 and on the September 1984 Canadian tour
