Queen Máxima of the Netherlands opened Campus Hoogvliet, a new educational and cultural area located on the southern edge of Rotterdam, this morning. For this event, she repeated a hat we have not seen in six years – a hat with a tall, pointed diagonal shaped crown and diagonal brim edged in royal blue trim to match her coat. I am afraid I am not a fan of this hat- it is too matchy-matchy with her coat and the shape of the too-tall crown looks cartoonish to me. I think this is one of those times when simpler would have been much better. What do you think of this hat?
