Dutch Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands visited the Dutch Defence Academy in Breda this morning. During her visit, she decorated the flag of the Royal Air Force with a campaign streamer in honor of their deployment to Kosovo in 1999. For this visit, Beatrix wore one of her signature brimless hats- this one in striking cherry red straw with a wide red velvet band and side loops. In the past, I was not a fan of these brimless hats but now, I find them rather endearing. That might be my soft spot for Queen Beatrix talking; I can’t help but like any headgear that shows off her sparkling eyes and bright smile.
Putting my bias and affection aside- don’t you think this a great color for her? Please Queen Bea- scrap the black hats for this final month of your reign! You shine in bright colors!
What do you think of this hat?
