On Saturday, Princess Beatrix was in Amersfoort to participate in the 70th anniversary of the Foundation 1940-1945. For this event, she repeated her navy straw hat with short brim and straight, flat crown. This hat is embellished with two things often seen on Princess Beatrix’s hats- a diagonal band around the top of the crown and a pair of straw loops on the side. It is a lovely colour on her although it reads a little flat worn with this monochrome ensemble. I much prefer this hat worn with some pattern, as it was the last time we saw it. What do you think?
