Princess Beatrix In Hoofddorp

Princess Beatrix was in Hoofddorp yesterday to open a child abuse support centre. For the event, she repeated a woven black oversize pillbox hat trimmed with a large organza bow at the back. The texture of this piece is most interesting and I think the large scale of this hat (typical of Princess Beatrix’s millinery) actually works in this case. What doesn’t work, however, is the bow. This addition makes the piece looks like a relic from the 1980s and that is never a good thing.

While I have found one previous outing of this hat in my archive, I suspect it has been worn a few more times. Does anyone remember this piece at another event?

  1. This hat reminds me of a basket I’ll put out on my bar next week on Thanksgiving, to capture cracked walnut shells. My basket does not have the dorky bow on it, however. The princess has a non-stop smile on her! She’s beautiful.
