On Saturday, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium attended a ceremony commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge in Bastogne on Saturday. Queen Mathilde repeated a brimless hat made of the same silver-theaded muted black fabric as her coat. I like this hat in front views, where it looks like a pillbox. From the side, however, its domed crown looks to have a slightly pointed top. I just can’t get behind a pointy pillbox.

In a homage to U.S. Army General Anthony McAuliffe, who had said “Nuts!” in response to an ultimatum from the German army, the royal couple threw nuts to the crowd.
