Princess Benedikte used the occasion to debut a new hat in biscuit colour straw with wide cartwheel brim and straight-sided crown. The hat is trimmed in a bias hatband in the same woven fabric as the ensemble’s coat, looped on the side in a bow. While I’d have preferred the hatband to be a little shorter, the overall look is still wonderfully elegant.
Previously Worn: this hat is new

Princess Nathalie of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg repeated her mother’s cream sinamay hat with wide upsweeping brim. We’ve previously seen this hat trimmed only with a wide sinamay hatband and it’s a nice change to see the large silk rose in apricot hues that Nathalie added to link the hat with her dress.
