Good point about the veil not touching the face!  That would be nice. 

She really has upped her game, hasn't she?  Smiley  It's great to see.

"19th Century Women’s Hats

During the 1810s, the new look became straw hats. However, a lack of access to Italy’s high-end straw bonnets gave rise to more affordable bonnets that were shaped out of pressed cardboard and covered in fabric. During the 1830s, nearly all women wore bonnets that were specifically made to show the front of their face, but hide their profiles. This style was often accompanied by a veil, which was meant not only to protect her face from the rays of the sun, but also from the gazes of strangers. How mysterious!"

I like the proportions - the brim doesn't extend beyond her shoulders, which I think makes a hat look just too big, and it has just enough trimming. I can imagine the veil does give you a slight sense of privacy. It's also very photogenic. I'm not 100% sold on the coat - it's perhaps a little plain compared to the beautiful coat with the bow neck worn to Philip's funeral
