Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh hosted a garden party today at the Palace of Holyroodhouse. To oversee the 27,000 cups of tea and 20,000 sandwiches served at the event, the Queen donned a new hat.
In soft pink straw, the design features an upturned straw brim and square crown covered in the same bouclé as her accompanying coat. Pale pink silk magnolia blooms and pink feathers nestled inside the brim complete the piece. It’s a pretty hat that I think would have been much improved if the whole thing had been fashioned in straw.
