Today, on the eve of Trooping the Colour tomorrow, we return back one year to this event in 2021, in the Quadrangle of Windsor Castle. Queen Elizabeth wore a grey hat with flared crown covered in the same silk cloque fabric as her coat. The design’s mushroom shaped straw brim is overlaid in pleated crin and the hat is finished with a grey goose feather mount and vine of gold silk flowers that wrap around the front that echo the floral applique around the neckline of her coat. Worn to Ascot, the opening of Parliament and Trooping the Colour, it felt like a fitting hat to end bridge our 70 day journey through Her Majesty’s history of hats to what she will wear for this celebration. Any predictions?!
