VE Day Anniversary Celebrations continued in Great Britain this weekend with the Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall attending a Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey this morning. The Queen repeated a navy straw hat with slanted crown, wrapped in a wide band of straw that knotted loosely at the front. The last time we saw this hat, it was trimmed with a large pink silk rose– as you can see today, the trim has been switched out with a pair of white silk lilies.

The Duchess of Cornwall repeated her ice blue picture hat with inverted edging, straw and crin bands around the crown, and a mass of flying straw and crin curled bow loops on the side. This hat is all about celebration, which made it a fitting choice for VE Day Commemoration, and Camilla continues to wear it so very well.
Designer: Philip Treacy.

The Countess of Wessex was in the Channel Islands on Saturday, attending a military parade and outdoor service in Guernsey and a Liberation ceremony in Jersey. For these events, she topped a vibrant green silk gazar dress with a black straw pillbox hat. According to the designer, the bespoke hat was trimmed with “vintage straw braid detail” which you can see in greater detail here
. The hat and dress had a distinctly retro 1950s vibe which felt so appropriate for this anniversary and looked fabulous on Sophie.
