Queen Elizabeth was in Newmarket yesterday where her calendar of engagements included a visit to the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and unveiling a statue of herself with two horses. For this visit, she repeated a pale pink straw hat with sloped crown and short brim.
Some of you might remember this hat looked a little different the last time we saw it:
The overall shape of the hat appears to be unchanged, along with the multi-looped bow trim. The confetti studded net tulle, however, has been removed and replaced with six pale pink arrow trimmed feathers. A pale aqua straw hat band has been added beneath the original pink one for a slim stripe of colour that picks up the coordinating aqua treads in Her Majesty’s bouclé coat- a subtle touch, perhaps, but one that ties the hat and coat together more harmoniously than in the hat’s original version.
