Queen Elizabeth And Wessex Family Attend Church

Queen Elizabeth was joined for Sunday service yesterday morning St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, Norfolk by the Earl and Countess of Wessex and their children. For this outing, the Queen repeated her modified dark green felt cloche with high, stacked asymmetrical crown and short brim. The hat is trimmed with a wide dark green felt hatband punctuated with an under-hatband in lime green, a knot in these two green shades and a pair of curved dark green quills. The limited photos don’t do the hat justice and it remains a lovely design on Her Majesty.

The Countess of Wessex repeated repeated a more casual camel felt fedora with overlapping pheasant feather hatband. The shape and scale of this hat are ones that Sophie wears well and the feather hatband elevates the design. I’m just not sure about its pairing with her wide-legged pink jumpsuit.

  1. This is still one of my favorites for HM! I like Sophie’s fedora, too, but not with the rest of what she’s wearing. Isn’t this the coat she wore with the leopard print pillbox in HatQueen’s Christmas hat retrospective? That was a much better pairing.

    • Mittenmary, good memory for Sophie’s coat. As for HM, the deep, rich green color is just wonderful.
      I’ll bet on RED for this Christmas. Any gamblers out there?

      • I’m on board with betting on red for Christmas Day, Jimbo! And I think that she’ll wear gold for her Christmas radio broadcast although there will be no hat as it’s taped from her own home, Sandringham. Not sure which brooches she’ll wear but I hope they’re big and full of diamonds! Merry Little Christmas Eve everyone.

  2. The Queen looks lovely and seasonally appropriate. It’s a nice strong colour without being in any way high-vis.

    I think the Countess’s hat would work fine with the jumpsuit if the coat wasn’t involved, or the coat without the hat, but two different neutrals with the same cheerful colour don’t really work – they’re trying to pull the outfit in two different directions. A dark grey hat or a warm tan coat might have been a better choice.

  3. While I’m so happy to see this gorgeous green hat again, my Christmas wish of seeing it on Christmas Day has been dashed! Oh well, still glad to see it, and with a beautiful emerald brooch this time.

    I wish we had more full-length images of Sophie’s ensemble; the jumpsuit and the fedora have potential, but I remain hesitant to give the whole look full approval. Still, this fedora always looks good on Sophie.

  4. The Queen’s jacket looks so cozy! I think she looks splendid in the green.
    The Countess looks great in fedora shapes. I don’t mind her overall outfit and hat. I look forward to seeing what she wears Christmas Day.

  5. I like this shape hat on QEII and the colour is a great shade on her. As for Sophie – please throw the entire outfit away, hat, boots, jumpsuit, coat and clutch – this has to be one of the most awful outfits l’ve seen her wear. Jumpsuits, which she appears to love do nothing for her at all.

  6. The more Sophie wears that jumpsuit, the sooner she can throw it away! I really like both hats. I’m liking HM’s winter hats, with felt and feather trim – some of those summer hats are getting whole bouquets of flower trim, whereas the winter ones are more restrained.
