King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima had another full day of engagements today, visiting the Reichstag, the Bundeskanzleramt and the Gropius Bau museum.
For these events, the Dutch queen repeated her 2019 Ascot hat!
The dusky pink straw sidesweeping saucer hat is covered in by flowers made of trimmed coque feathers in paler shades of beigey-blush pink, with pearl bead centers. The hat is completed with straw bands circling around it, under the feather flowers (perhaps a structural element?).
It’s such a statement hat, I was a little surprised to see it in Germany today. I shouldn’t have been, as Máxima often brings out her big gun looks for state visits. And this is spectacular! I adore how the different dyed shades of the feathers pair so well with the dress, the colours complimenting while not being one note. Yes, the design obscures her face from certain angles but it’s such a stunning design, this almost doesn’t matter.
