The Queen Takes Style Risk With Textured Hat

As style risks go, wearing a heavily textured hat might seem relatively (or, indeed, utterly) minor, but given the Queen's usual headgear is all about clean lines and block colours we wanted to give this uncharacteristically elaborate number a mention.

The hat is the work of milliner Rachel Trevor-Morgan and features all-over pleating in a pale pink fabric with a lavender and white decoration to perfectly match the boucle jacket she wore to South London for the latest leg of her Diamond Jubilee tour.

Sadly the weather was still a little on the rubbish side meaning the Queen needed the help of a brolly to protect her experimental look.
