Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the London Zoo today to officially open ‘The Land Of The Lions’ exhibit. For this adventure, the Queen repeated her triangular beret with tall white feather anchored by a large button on the side. Seeing this hat in daylight today showed a surprise- it and its matching coat are actually the palest shade of blue instead of the grey it has read as in photos until now. This colour confirmation improves the hat slightly in my estimation but the odd feather trim and too-pale hue remain hurdles to me really liking this piece.
What do you think about this uniquely shaped hat on Her Majesty?
