Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Pangbourne today to take part in the centenary celebrations of Pangbourne College. The Queen, who presented new colours to the institution and academic awards to several students, repeated her silk embroidered wool hat with diagonal crown and wired sequin flower trim. Today’s outdoor photos again pick up the pink and blue threads in the fabric of this hat and matching coat, a view required to understand its fine detail. I’m not sure I like the juxtaposition of this subtle finery with the bold ski slope shape of the crown (or maybe I’ve seen it too often recently?) but overall, the Queen wears it well.
