Dutch Royals visit Brunei- Day 1

Queen Beatrix, Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima of the Netherlands have arrived in Brunei for a two-day state visit. For their arrival, Queen Beatrix wore a new dove grey straw hat with double raised bumper brim and a large flower on the side.I usually like Beatrix in hats that are brighter colours but the dove grey perfectly complimented her bright magenta dress.

Máxima repeated the blush pink straw ruched turban she last wore in April 2011 for William and Kate’s wedding. While the colour was a little washed out, it was a great backdrop for those STUNNING emeralds!

The first day also included a boat tour and museum visit – and a costume change! Queen Beatrix wore a raspberry pink straw hat with a large upturned kettle brim and slightly fluted crown, trimmed with a stylized bow. 

Máxima wore a large natural straw hat with upturned brim (the same one she wore on July 2, 2011 for the wedding of Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco).

  1. Wow. All of these hats are amazing. Maxima’s pink turban is a little odd but with that green dress, it’s amazing. Thanks for posting this! I had no idea they were in Borneo.
