Queen Elizabeth attended a service at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Air Forces Memorial in Runnymede today to mark the 100th anniversary of the Australian Air Force.
For her first public engagement outside Windsor Castle this year, she repeated her cream straw and lime silk wool split crown shaped hat trimmed with a spray of silk orchids and a slim green bow at the side. The colour palate makes this such a great choice for spring in the Northern Hemisphere- it just feels hopeful. Even with its clunky crown shape, that hopefulness makes this ensemble such a lovely great choice for today (along with her Australian wattle brooch!).
We’ve not seen this hat for nearly two years- what are your thoughts about it after its outing today?
