King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia arrived in The Netherlands today to begin a two-day visit. They were greeted by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam.
Queen Máxima repeated the same silver headpiece and suit she wore for Princess Arianne’s christening in 2007. While I did not like this headpiece the last time we saw it (last November worn with a jade lace dress), there is something about this suit and hat that just works together. I think it might be the clean lines and round neck of that beautiful jacket that coordinate with the clean lines and round shape of the hat. Nevertheless, I thought Máxima looked so regal and elegant in this ensemble that I nearly forgot this hat is not closed on top and simply wraps in silver rings around her head.
Queen Silvia topped her red coat off with a smart black beret (if this hat looks familiar, take a peek here!). We often see Silvia in pillbox and calot hats and it was a nice change to see her in this modern, structured beret. The scale of this hat was very flattering on her, as was the styling of her hair with it. Compared to Queen Máxima it may seems a little boring but on it’s own, I think it is a lovely hat. What do you think of this pair of royal hats today?
Designer of Queen Silvia’s hat: Whiteley Fischer Ltd.
