Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh concluded their visit to Northern Ireland today by launching World Ware I commemoration and taking part in an episode of “Antiques Roadshow” at Hillborough Castle. The Queen looked cool as a cucumber in a new white and pale aqua flat brimmed hat. I really like contrasting colours on the crown and brim of this hat, and think the soft aqua is a wonderful shade on Her Majesty. I’m just not sure about the heavily textured white crown; I think plain straw might have been more effective and allowed the pair of aqua feathers adorning this hat to stand out more. In my opinion, the coat is beautifully tailored and would be better matched with a less frantic hat but I’m curious, dear readers, what you think of this new hat?
Designer: Angela Kelly, made by Stella McLaren
