King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima attended the National Remembrance Ceremony at Dam Square today.
The Dutch queen always wears a black hat for this event and today she wore a layered felt turban.
At first glance, it appeared a repeat of this layered black felt turban. Closer inspection, however, shows the hats to be different- the design today features smaller layers, a narrower brim cuff (on the opposite side!) and a larger crown. Furthermore, the hat today is made of a lower nape felt that is noticeably smoother than the longer pile melusine felt of the previous hat. These slight tweaks give today’s hat a more refined feel, all around. With her dress, cape and pearl jewels, the hat tops an elegantly restrained look so well suited to this event.
Designer: unknown. Massimo Dutti dress.
Previously Worn: I believe this hat is new

A very elegant ensemble that hits the right notes for this occasion. The hat is lovely, and reminds me of the turbans from Phillip Treacy’s AW2020 collection. I wonder if he is the designer?
Interesting thought. She has worn his designs.
This is a superb hat. I love everything about it and her ensemble.
A very elegant and suitable look on Máxima, I have to say I’m not sure I’d be able to see the difference in the two hats, or indeed why she’d need two so similar!
It is a great look, very appropriate to the occasion.
I like this look for such a sad occasion. Maxima always looks at her most elegant for Remembrance and memorial engagements.
I’m not often a fan of turbans, but the movement and design of this one is quite striking, made more so by the rest of the ensemble. Elegant and regal, perfect for the occasion.
A beautiful look well-suited to the occasion.
It is so haunting and powerful to see such celebrations with so few able to be there.
Regally glamorous and yet suitably sober for the occasion – Queen Maxima couldn’t have chosen better!
