Thanks to Jimbo for providing background research for Queen Elizabeth’s hats featured in this “Monday Multiples” series.
During the early 1980s, Queen Elizabeth paired a blue and green printed dress with three unique hats. Interestingly, each pairing appeared on a tropical foreign tour:
Look #1: Deep green silk tam with large blue flower worn October 30, 1982 in Fiji
Look #2: Emerald and white straw cuffed turban with draped navy silk hatband scarf October 10, 1985 in Belize
Look #3: Dark green straw hat with white upturned halo brim and large silk flower on the back worn October 11, 1985 arriving in The Bahamas. This hat was previously worn with a green printed dress on two more tropical visits- February 17, 1977 in Fiji and October 28, 1977 in Antigua!
Which of these tropical pairings do you prefer most?
