On Saturday, a public memorial service for Prince Friso of the Netherlands was held in Delft.
Princess Mabel wore an open-crowned design of black rings we have seen on Queen Máxima numerous times previously. Princess Beatrix wore a large straw hat with flat crown and brim. The band around the crown was repeated in a wide band around the brim.
Queen Máxima wore a rounded black velvet felt pillbox with bow at the back. Princess Laurentien wore a black wool unembellished turban.
Princess Martha Louise of Norway (her father, King Harald, was Prince Friso’s godfather) wore a tilted black wool bowler. Countess Annabel of Oyenhausen-Sierstorpff (a relative of Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands) wore an avant garde giant black wool feather with a sheer brim. While I am usually gleeful to see an over the top hat, I don’t think a memorial service is the time to sport one.
