This was at nighttime, as a rule hats never appear after 6 p.m.

The Queen considers her arrival at night as formal but unofficial so The Queen do not wear a hat similiar to when The Queen attends Chelsea Flower Show.Hats are worn at night too but it depends on the function or engagement attended by The Queen.For an example,The Queen wears hat when attending the closing of the Commonwealth Games.

Same here. The First Lady is really elegant, I preferred her daytime outfit to the Queen's.

Yes, it was true. And i just add one more occasion when HM arrived in Singapore last March, she wore hat when she arrived at the hotel in the evening.

Queen visit brings excitement to Lithuania
...
The children were very moved to talk with her, though some of them weren't sure she was the Queen because she wasn't wearing a crown and a long dress

Two 'no-no'-rules for hats:
- a lady never wears a hat in her own house
- a lady never wears a hat after sundown

On Wednesday 18th October morning, the British Monarch will travel to Latvia and attend the official welcoming ceremony at Riga Castle.
The Duke of Edinburgh will visit St Saviour's Anglican Church to meet Latvian veterans of the Afganistan conflicts before unveiling a memorial plaque and meeting church volunteers and British and Latvian sailors.
The queen will also visit the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia to view a reconstruction of Gulag barracks and a Soviet deportation display, and listen to a performance from the Latvian Youth Choir.
She will then undertakes a short walkabout with the Latvian president.

On Thursday 19th October, the royal couple will arrive at the President's Palace in the Estonian capital of Tallinn for the official welcoming ceremony and exchange of gifts.
The queen will deliver a speech at the state banquet at the House of the Brotherhood of Blackheads.
On the last day, 20th October, the couple will attend a service to commemorate the Royal Navy's role in Estonia's independence and attend a concert entitled 'Estonia Sings' in the Town Hall Square (I believe that it is possible to watch this event through internet too).
The queen and her husband will visit HMS Liverpool warship as well as meet Estonian forces due to serve in Afghanistan.
