King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima completed their inaugural Caribbean tour with a second day spent on the island of Aruba. For her final piece of millinery this tour, Máxima made a rather unusual choice- she repeated a pale grey velvet headpiece with open crown and side bow loops. My thoughts about convertible hats aside, I thought choosing a velvet headpiece for an event in a warm, tropical country just didn’t make sense. A wide brimmed straw hat would have been better, don’t you think?
I think the hats from this tour were a little hit and miss. My favourite was the first one we saw- the huge pale pink picture hat worn in St. Maarten. Which one did you like best?
