Queen Elizabeth welcomed President and Dr. Biden to tea at Windsor Castle today following the G7 Summit in Cornwall.
For the occasion, the Queen debuted a new hat. In medium pink parasisal straw, the design features a sloped crown and upturned kettle brim, slightly raised on one side. The hat is trimmed with slim straw and felt overlapping hatbands tied in multiple side bows and a single, curving quill.
The top of the crown is blocked in a pair of indented crescent swirls around one side that gives beautiful movement to the piece.
The colour is lovely on Her Majesty, as is the gentle slope of the crown and brim. I think I’d prefer some more contrasting trim however- I’m a bit worried that when this dress’ matching coat is added (because there’s always a coat!), it’s going to be an overly monochrome look. We’ll have to wait and see.

Previously Worn: this hat is new
I was hoping we’d see a new hat on the Queen this weekend and she did not disappoint. What do you think of this new pink design?
