The Queen’s official birthday celebration, Trooping the Colour, kicked off four days of celebration for the Platinum Jubilee beneath sunny skies in London today.
Queen Elizabeth wore a pale periwinkle ensemble for this event, one familiar from the new portrait released of her this week.
The outfit’s matching hat, impeccably covered in the same fabric, features a shallow crown and open halo brim. Both the coat and hat are trimmed with the most exquisite platinum beaded scroll braid.
The placement of the platinum trim around edge of the brim is a brilliant one, encircling Her Majesty’s face in a highlight of subtle sparkle.
Designer: Angela Kelly made by Stella Mclaren
Previously Worn: This hat is new
Purple and platinum, on paper, feel like obvious colour choices for today but these softer shades make this such a fresh and flattering choice for Her Majesty. What do you think of her new hat today?!
We’ll look more at hats worn by other family members in the next post.
