Queen Elizabeth after presented New Colours to the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards at Windsor Castle on Thursday. For the ceremony, she repeated her royal blue hat with silver braid trim. The flat crowned and flat brimmed hat is the exact same shape as the hat we revisited earlier this week and like many of you, I find it a little too harsh for Her Majesty. Shape issues aside, it is a lovely colour on her.
The Queen was joined by the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. Camilla repeated a large hat made of snakeskin printed straw. The large brim of the hat swept up over the crown and it was trimmed with a trio of long Lady Amherst pheasant feathers. While the hat has a lot going on, it was a great counterpoint to her sleek taupe coat and dress. You can see close-up photos of this hat when Camilla last wore it, over at this post
