Platinum Jubilee Countdown: 3


Can you believe it’s now just 3 days until the start of the Platinum Jubilee?! Between 2010 and 2018, Queen Elizabeth wore this beautiful lilac straw brimmed hat with stunning silk flower and green feather micro leaves by Rachel Trevor Morgan to several events.

  1. Here’s a great view of the dress underneath. The hat’s flower makes perfect sense now.

  2. I love this hat – the flower is exquisite. I like both coats and the close-up of the beautiful buttonholes on the coat with the white and gold buttons just highlights the beautiful tailoring. The pockets of the coat with the white button are equally beautifully tailored.

  3. I agree that the flower goes more logically with the dress, but do think it complements the coat nicely even when the dress can’t be seen. Another beautiful example of HM’s signature style!

  4. Is the hat’s flower made from the same fabric as the dress? I expected it would be but it doesn’t look quite like it….to me.

    • No. Millinery flowers are typically made from solid colour (usually white) lightweight silk, custom dyed to match an outift. The flowers here are layers of different colours which give them such dimension.

      • the custom dye is excellent!
        I know they can do this with shoes as well, handing in white shoes and a piece of colored fabric as example

  5. I thought the flowers a little unexpected with the lilac coat, but when I saw the dress underneath, they made more sense.

    Another very pretty hat.

  6. It is a beautiful hat and beautiful flowers, but somehow to me the colours don’t complement each other. I think perhaps the dark pink shade on the flowers a) makes the white look a little off and b) tends to appear magenta, which doesn’t go as well with the lilac of the hat and outfit as another lighter or pinker shade might have done.
