I go weak in the knees at the sight of a perfect royal picture hat and some of my favourites have been worn by Princess Claire of Belgium. Earlier this summer, we saw Claire looking fantastic in this classic picture hat in pinky beige straw designed by Fabienne Delvigne, paired with a sequinned fuchsia suit.
This hat, with a square crown and cartwheel brim, is nearly unrecognizable from the the last time we saw it. Amazing what the addition of an orange ribbon around the crown can do, isn’t it?

In light of these completely different looks, I can’t resist asking, dear readers, which outfit do you like best with this hat?
