King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima visited the Council of State in The Hague today to attend a farewell reception of vice-president Piet Hein Donner. For this, Queen Máxima repeated her grey felt pillbox hat trimmed sparingly with grey ribbon binding around the base and a slim double bow at the side.

It’s a simple hat that suffers a bit from styling choices here- hat and trouser combinations are always tricky (to be fair, this is better than most) and this hat is caught in a battle of prevailing formality between the casual hairstyle and stunning pearl jewelry. The ensemble’s colour palate is good but with the trouser cuffs overtaking the width of the hat, I think the overall balance of the look is off.
So… what do you think of this hat today in The Hague?
