Are EU against Brexit, m’am? Queen’s outfit sparks remain debate

If you were a Briton who’d voted to remain in the EU, Tuesday’s Queen Speech would have made for difficult viewing.

Brexit dominated the address, as the monarch spoke about the importance of making a success of the country’s exit.

It spoke about transferring EU law into British legislation, bringing a sense of finality for those hoping the referendum decision can be reversed.

So it is perhaps against this desperate backdrop that Twitter users have been pointing out the Queen’s attire.

Her outfit’s similarity to the EU flag had people suggesting that she was having a subtle dig at the whole idea of Brexit.

What was she thinking? #QueensHat

How Twitter reacted

OMG – the Queen is basically wearing a EU flag on her head.#QueensSpeech

The Queen is basically wearing the EU flag on her head instead of a crown. Epic trolling.

I enjoy that the Queen is wearing the colours of the EU flag. I like to think that this is some subtle act of rebellion

The Queen rocking the colours of the EU as she delivers her speech. So provocative.
