On each of its previous wearings, the hat has been worn with a matching cornflower blue coat but today, Her Majesty wore it with a shorter white jacket. Today’s pairing gives us a great view of the accompanying blue flowered silk dress (showing how well the hat and its trimmings coordinate) and places the hat as the focal point of the ensemble.

Interesting side note- during today’s visit, Canadian Governor General David Johnson presented this gift to Her Majesty.
Do you prefer this hat with its original blue coat or with the short white jacket we saw it paired with today?
