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.
What do you think of these two familiar hats out for church yesterday?
