Queen Mathilde of Belgium celebrated her 41st birthday yesterday. In the past year, she has emerged as one of the most interesting royal hat wearers and claimed top spot in our favourite hats of 2013. Choosing a hat for Mathilde was difficult but I have selected the “Carmen” bubblegum pink straw hat with open, curved lattice brim from British Milliner Rachel Black’s SS 2014 collection. Pink is a great colour for this Queen and she has rocked many an interesting hat shape in the past (see 40 of her past hats from her 40th birthday a year ago). I think this hat would be perfect for her.
Please share your millinery suggestions for Queen Mathilde in the comments. Let’s please respect the work of these marvelous milliners by crediting designers whenever possible.
