Queen Elizabeth and the Prince of Wales marked the the 40th anniversary of The Prince’s Trust this morning with a visit to The Prince’s Trust Centre in the Kennington neighbourhood of London. For this celebration, the Queen repeated her teardrop shaped hat in royal blue with feather trim around the brim. Today’s outing provided the best look we have seen of this piece- a look, unfortunately, that only deepens my dislike of it. The colour is beautiful on Her Majesty but I’m afraid that the odd hourglass teardrop shape of the too-tall crown is both awkward and unflattering, two things that a royal hat should never be.
So what do you think of this piece, dearest readers? Is my critique overly harsh or do you join me in wishing for this hat’s retirement?
