Queen Elizabeth took up summer residency at Balmoral Castle yesterday, where she was officially welcomed by The Royal Regiment of Scotland Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and their mascot Cruachan (the same pony who attempted to snack on Her Majesty’s bouquet several weeks back). It appears that our reader’s guest posts over recent weeks inspired a reach into the depths of the Queen’s closet as she wore an ensemble yesterday we’ve only seen once, three years ago for her arrival in Paris. The hat, another one of Angela Kelly’s “Square Crown and Rolled Brim” designs, is covered in the same embroidered pink fabric as the suit and while it makes for a very coordinated ensemble, it’s a bit too much of the same colour and texture for my liking. These qualms aside, it’s nice to see the hat make a second appearance.
Earlier today, The Queen was welcomed to Balmoral Castle by Balaklava Company, The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, 5th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland and the regiment's mascot Cruachan. Her Majesty will spend the rest of the summer at Balmoral before returning to her duties in the autumn. 📷Ministry of Defence
