Queen Elizabeth wrapped up Holyrood Week with a visit to the Royal Society of Edinburgh today.
For this visit, she repeated her sky blue straw hat with stepped crown, raised brim, punchy navy trim on the stacked hatband and side bow, and beautiful feather flower trim. I was a little surprised to see this hat appear so quickly after its last outing but I’m not complaining- it’s scale, shape, colour, balance and trim make it a beauty.
Today The Queen visited The Royal Society of Edinburgh where she presented two Royal Medals. Instituted by Her Majesty in 2000, Royal Medals are awarded every year for distinction and international repute in a range of different disciplines including Life Sciences, Engineering, Business and the Arts. The Royal Medalists receiving their Royal Medals today were Professor Peter Boyle for his outstanding contribution to global cancer control and Professor Tessa Holyoake her contribution to the field of Life Sciences.
