King Philippe, Queen Mathilde and their children celebrated their country’s national holiday today with a Te Deum mass this morning at the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula in Brussels followed by a military parade.
Queen Mathilde wore a new hat, as she usually does for this event each year. This year’s ensemble was less dramatic than in years past and she topped an exquisite NATAN lace dress with a hat described by the designer as “a beige pink head dress accompanied by a matching clutch, both made out of banana fibres.” The headpiece looks to be made of individual crescents (stylised petals perhaps?) stacked to follow the general shape of a calot hat.
