I couldn’t choose between two hats with uniquely woven crowns for today’s post so… why not share both?!
First is a lovely lavender brimmed hat with lattice woven crown the Queen wore for the Founders Day parade at Chelsea Royal Hospital on June 10, June 1982 and a visit to RAF Wittering, Cambridgeshire on June 21 of the same year.
Second is a slate blue hat with straw kettle brim and crown woven with tubes of the same blue floral silk as her dress in an open basket weave pattern. She wore this Frederick Fox design on November 18, 1983 on a visit to India with a matching Hardy Amies dress.
