King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium visited Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa at the Grand Ducal Palace in Luxembourg this morning. Queen Mathilde unveiled a new hat- at first glance, it looked like a royal blue pillbox but at closer look, this is actually a calot style (notice how it sits like a cap on the crown of Mathilde’s head). This hat looks to be covered in the same blue silk as Mathilde’s coat and was trimmed in dark blue feathers. It’s a great colour on her (look at how her blue eyes ‘pop’) and I thought she wore it very well.
Curiously, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa did not wear a hat. What did you think of Queen Mathilde’s new hat today?
