The King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands have begun a two-day working visit to the German states of Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia. This visit, which is focused on industry, energy and trade, kicked off today in Lower Saxony at the Oldenburg University. Queen Máxima repeated a wonderful hat we have not seen in a long time, this giant black and white picture hat with squared crown and mushroom brim. I adore this hat because it is such a classic shape and colour scheme yet is oozing drama and presence. I think this is Máxima at her millinery best.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images

This glorious piece of millinery has been hiding in Máxima’s closet for over eight years and I am so happy that she brought it out today. I also cannot wait to hear what you, dear readers, think of this hat!
