King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima concluded their tour of New Zealand yesterday with a day of engagements in Aukland. Queen Máxima repeated her over oversized navy picture hat for the occasion, pairing it with the same navy lace dress we saw it worn with at its debut earlier this year. This remains a wonderfully dramatic hat, elevated with some subtle detail – lovely folded edge detail around the brim and slim intersecting hat bands – that Máxima wears well.
One of the day’s events saw the royal couple observe sailing students at Princess Warf and the seaside breeze prompted Queen Máxima to wrap up to stay warm. The hat does not show well with this wrap…do check out this gallery of photos detailing the rest of the day
. This leaves me with two questions for you, dearest readers- what did you think of this hat on this last day of this great state visit? Of all the hats we saw Queen Máxima wear in Australia and New Zealand, which one was your favourite?
