Thanks to reader Jimbo for providing the introduction and background research for “Multiples” posts on Queen Elizabeth.
Jimbo’s Introduction: Queen Elizabeth toured Kenya in November of 1983, and while in Nairobi, wore a wonderful deep coral bowler hat, which went beautifully with her coral patterned suit. Two years later, in October of 1985, while in the Bahamas, the hat was repeated with a pale yellow patterned dress – lightweight and long sleeved, perfect for the warm tropical climate.
