Queen Elizabeth spent her 91st birthday today enjoying the spring trials meeting at Newbury Racecourse. For this day at the races, she repeated her pink felt hat with flat crown and short cartwheel brim. While the pale blue and copper feather trim on this piece is obviously meant to coordinate with the plaid in Her Majesty’s bouclé, I’ve always thought they brought little to this hat. There’s something about the lightness of these feathers that just doesn’t work here, I think.
