Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall took on joint engagements in Cardiff today, visiting the city and attending the Opening of the Fifth Session of the National Assembly for Wales at The Senedd. For this unusual joint event, the Queen and Camilla coordinated their ensembles in pale, summery green.
Queen Elizabeth repeated her pale aqua hat in textured straw. This piece is beautifully trimmed with an untextured aqua straw hat band and edging around the brim, two pale grey silk flowers and a pair of grey arrow trimmed feathers. The textured straw gives much visual interest to this small piece and the colour is beautiful on Her Majesty.
The Duchess of Cornwall repeated her mint straw hat with ‘slice’ diagonal brim trimmed with wide jinsin ribbon curls. This trim gives such a sense of lightness and fun to the hat although I still wish Camilla would tilt it back slightly off her face.
I’m always intrigued when royals coordinate their outfits (and wonder what kind of memos are exchanged between royal offices!) and can’t imagine that this pair of green hats in Cardiff today was a coincidence. What do you think of these green designs?
