Dutch Monarchs Visit West-Brabant

King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima visited the Dutch province of West-Brabant today. Máxima repeated her grey velvet felt picture hat with ‘slice’ brim trimmed simply with a wide band around the base of the crown.

This is the seventh different outfit we have seen paired with this hat and while the colours work harmoniously, I think the ensemble would have worked better with a less voluminous coat.  What do you think of Máxima’s hat and ensemble today?

  1. Queen Máxima’s gray slice hat is a good color for her and it has the perfect proportions. I’ll take it! It’s a shame she has teamed it up with what looks like a blanket stitched up to create an impression of a coat, and a huge skirt. I’ll take those earrings too!

  2. This hat shape is one of Queen Máxima’s best ones, and this is one of my favourites in her hat wardrobe. I am not crazy about it being paired with the voluminous coat-cape and skirt. I think it’s most successful outing was being paired with orange.

  3. While it does look as little as though Queen Máxima is wearing a blanket, this fabulous hat makes any outfit sparkle. What surprises me is that she appears, in picture #4, to be wearing low-healed shoes (although by the time she’s walking and photographed on cobblestones, who knows?)

  4. YES!! I’ve been longing for the return of the slice! Since the coat lacks proper sleeves, it seems a bit awkward, but this is my only minor complaint. Glad to see her authentic smile out again, and the last photo is a real stunner; the way the hat frames her face in that one is just amazing.

  5. I’m not keen on the outfit but Queen M really is a wonderful hat wearer. What she does so well is to get her hair right so that the hat looks good and her face can be seen. Her hats are wonderful.

  6. I think I like the hat best with the first three outfits she wore it with. The sequin wedding outfit, the grey dress with big sleeves, and the pin-stripe suit. I really don’t like the grey hat with the camel coat. It is fine with the grey skirts, too. She really is getting her money’s worth out of this hat! 🙂

    • Yes, a voluminous coat/cape and a voluminous skirt!! Good of you to add this hat to the previous this or that post HQ. I love seeing how these hats are recycled, and of course the value for money aspect is appreciated too. Thanks.
