The Dutch monarchs continued the second day of their state visit to Norway with a program of events including a seminar on human rights, a visit with the Prime Minister, lunch at Akershus Castle and a reception aboard Dutch navy ship in Oslo harbor.
For these events, Queen Máxima repeated her navy smocked silk crepe and georgette organza calot headpiece embroidered with narrow metal bugle beads.
This ensemble is such a great sartorial flat for the House of Orange, the small scale headpiece balancing well against the strong looks of the dress and coat. I’ve said it before- while the calot shape is not my favourite, it serves good purpose for events like these, especially when the host queen elects not to wear a hat!
Crown Princess Mette-Marit wore a navy embellished hair ornament worn to tie back her hair.
