Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh hosted the second garden party of the season yesterday in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, their London home. The Queen repeated her pale yellow hat with upswept brim, straw bow loops and silk flowers in brown and blue. The floral trim on this piece has always felt a little random but today’s photos finally brought one with a peek at the accompanying dress- the trim now makes more sense.
The Duchess of Cornwall repeated her ice blue picture hat with inverted brim edging, straw and crin crown wraps and a mass of flying straw and crin curled bow loops on the side. The shape and scale of this piece is perfect for a garden party… I’m just hoping to see something new (and in a saturated colour!) on Camilla, soon.

Speaking of new and saturated colours, Princess Eugenie topped her electric blue dress with an orange straw pyramid shaped saucer hat. It’s an unexpected choice for her but styled in the colour blocking way that it is here, the hat tops a great look for Eugenie. Such fun!
Designer: Sarah Cant. It is a bespoke version of “Siberica”
