On April 20, Princess Beatrix was in Oud-Vossemeer to open the Roosevelt Information Centre (ancestors of US Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin Delano Roosevelt hailed from this area of Holland). For this event, she repeated her red straw hat with tall and boxy bumper brim, topped with navy trim around the perimeter of the rounded crown. While the shape is not my favourite, I love how Beatrix’s red hat, shoes and purse add hits of colour to her more neutral suit.
We’ll undoubtedly see the princess tomorrow for annual Koningsdag celebrations, held this year in Amsterdam. Any thoughts to share about this hat until then?
