Do feel free to dress up just for the fun of it. Hats are de rigueur; gloves optional.

(The Queen has tentatively promised not to shout "Off with their heads!" for the two hours she will be present, but we're keeping our fingers crossed just in case...you know the saw about "old habits." Predictably, we have little to gainsay re: the Mad Hatter's lack of lucidity. It is what it is...)
