Before January disappears, I want to try and fit in several more blue hat wardrobe inventories. Today, we’re venturing into the depths of Queen Máxima’s closet. As one of the most frequent hat wearing royals around today, you might expect there to be a number of blue hats in Máxima’s history but amazingly, there are just four:
Designers: Fabienne Delvigne; Fabienne Delvigne
Introduced: February 27, 2007; October 31, 2011
UPDATE: The Dutch Queen must have heard our call for more blue hats (!), adding a fifth design in May 2016 and sixth for Koningsdag in April 2017.
Even I am surprised to find so few pieces on the blue shelf of Máxima’s millinery closet. These designs are varied, certainly, but are less than half of the blue hats worn by both Queen Mathilde and the Countess of Wessex (even the Duchess of Cambridge has considerably more!). I suppose we can only surmise that when it comes to blue, this orange queen is not such a fan.
