Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, attended a Maundy Thursday service today at Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford, England. As per tradition, the Queen distributed specially minted Maundy money to 87 women and 87 men- 87 pence (the Queen’s age) a piece. She wore a royal blue stovepipe hat with a large feather sweeping around the brim. The crown came to a point in front, making the hat uniquely teardrop-shaped. The designer is unconfirmed but it’s widely agreed to be Angela Kelly (it fits perfectly with Kelly’s penchant for fabric covered hats in unusual shapes). The color was great the Queen (who still looks a little pale) but I’m not sure about the teardrop shape. What do you think?
