75 years ago, as we celebrated VE Day, the Queen Mother met with people in the capital. She also hosted a garden party at Buckingham Palace for prisoner’s of war.
As you can see here, she is wearing her favourite colour, blue; it suits her so well. Her hat has a lovely fitted crown with a dramatic upturned brim. Queen Elizabeth liked wearing upturned brims as she felt it was important that her face was visible to all.
The hat is trimmed with an elaborate fan of ostrich feathers & a pretty little bow. This hat is elegant & fitting to the occasion; it doesn’t steal the show & enables her to talk to all people she met easily, without the brim covering her face.
Can you imagine members of the Royal family freely walking around with this close proximity to the general public these days? How lovely for everyone that got to meet the King & Queen.
Thanks for reading.
