Queen Elizabeth visited The Norfolk Hospice at Hillington near her Sandringham estate this morning to meet with patients, trustees, volunteers and medical professionals of the hospice which which has been serving its local community for over 30 years. For this event, she repeated her vibrant blue hat with upturned straw brim, silk crepe covered crown and velvet flower trim. The photos today show the how closely the the velvet flowers on the hat relate to the print of her silk dress, a connection lost to me until now. It’s this kind of design detail that pulls an ensemble harmoniously together and while I’m still not sure of the chevron button closure on her coat, the hat remains a real winner for me.
