On Wednesday, Princess Beatrix was in Oldebroek to open a restored windmill. Her hat for this occasion is a bit of a surprise- in grey and blue straw, this design features a flat crown and double upturned brim accented with black piping. We seldom see two toned hats (especially on Beatrix) and while I’m not sure I like the double brim, it’s an interesting piece that keeps drawing me in for another look.

Yesterday, Princess Beatrix attended conference on the 30th anniversary of CoMensha, an organization that specialises in human trafficking. She repeated a dark navy hat with domed crown wrapped in layers of wide straw ribbon. The effect of this pseudo-brim creates a hybrid shape with the straight sides of a pillbox and the indented crown and high brim of a bumper. In the end, it’s another one of Beatric’s ‘cake’ hats, this time in blueberry with stripes of icing round the side.
