Platinum Jubilee Countdown: 70

Today marks 70 days from the start of the Platinum Jubilee. We’re going to countdown to this historic event with a daily look back at some of the hats Queen Elizabeth has worn during her lifetime. Where better to start than at the beginning of her hat wearing life, as a toddler in 1928 with this wonderful ruffled bonnet.

  1. Winston Churchill said that HM had ‘an air of authority unusual in an infant’, and you can definitely see that here! Such a lot of bonnet, but the first of many hats, and I’m looking forward to seeing 70 of them over the next few months!

  2. WOW! 70 days of millinery awesomeness.
    I hope and pray HM makes it to Philip’s Remembrance Service next week! (March 29)

  3. What a delightful way to mark 70 days until the Platinum Jubilee Celebration for Queen Elizabeth. I wonder what colour this beautiful bonnet was. No doubt hand stitched by a skilled pair of hands. Lovely!
