Upon her coming of age this week, Princess Amalia was introduced to the Council of State in The Hague today by her parents, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima.
Queen Máxima wore a new hat for the occasion, in vibrant magenta felt. With a rounded crown and steeply upturned sidesweeping slice brim, the design is trimmed with a double satin stitched hatband and statement flower in layers of purple and red silk.
The brim length on this design is shorter than many of Queen Máxima’s other hats in this shape and this reduced scale works well, especially in this showstopping colour. As we’ve previously noted in discussions here on the blog, few of the hats in her closet are trimmed with flowers and it’s great to see a floral trim, especially one so dimensional and effective.
Designer: Philip Treacy. Coat dress by Natan.
