Queen Beatrix in Toldijk

Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands attended the 100th anniversary of the Dutch Rural Youth Organization in Toldijk today. She wore one of her signature large brimmed hats;  this one had a stacked crown and side bow loop (see more of these side loop-de- looped hats here). The lovely upturned brim and the deep burgundy colour made this a stunning hat on her. It’s sad to think we only have two more months of official hat loveliness from Beatrix- no doubt we’ll see her in her retirement, but I’m afraid it will be with far fewer hats. Sigh.
