Members of the Belgian royal family gathered at Notre Dame Church in Laeken today to take part in an annual Te Deum mass in memory of deceased family members. For the service, Queen Mathilde repeated a grey felt Garbo style hat with rounded crown and slightly floppy brim. Trimmed simply with a slim leather band around the base of the crown, this hat’s impact comes from the relaxed shape of its brim. It’s a stylish piece that Mathilde wears well (jump over to this post to see this hat paired with other outfits)
Prince Nikolaus and Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein (who is a first cousin to King Philippe) also attended the service this year. Princess Margaretha repeated a simple black brimless bumper hat. During past outings, this hat has appeared to be a pillbox but if you look closely at this photo, you’ll see a rounded crown surrounded by a bumper brim.
