Last Wednesday, Princess Beatrix attended the Jantje Beton award ceremony for most play-friendly city in Culemborg. For this event, where she presented a statue award that she had made, she repeated a beigey pink straw hat with a pyramid crown and triple rolled bumper brim.
The sheen and bias placement of the brim beautifully frame Beatrix’s face, softening the angular lines of the crown, while metallic silver threads in the sinamay weave give the loveliest bit of sparkle. The pyramid crown shape is never going to be a favourite for me but the rest of this design works really well.

Also last Thursday, Queen Máxima visited Museum Beeld en Geluid to receive the first copy of the photo book “Stichting Haags Verhaal” by photographer Piet Gispen. She repeated her her midnight blue felt fedora with Petersham ribbon hatband tied in a side bow.
The extended brim on this design gives it a chic informality that seemed to suit this event and paired well with her grey ensemble.
Thought about these two hats last week?
