Queen Máxima was in Urk today to launch the 11th annual Dutch Neighbour’s Day as well as look in at the damage from a recent gas explosion in the town. For this day of engagements, Máxima repeated her airy turban made of ruched and folded light oyster grey straw. This hat has a slight metallic sheen that makes it sparkle in daylight which in turn, further lightens the design and makes it look all the more like a rain cloud on her head. A pretty rain cloud, certainly, but a rain cloud nonetheless.

Today we saw Queen Elizabeth in a marshmallow and now we’ve seen Queen Máxima in a rain cloud. I can’t resist asking, dearest readers- when it comes to royal millinery, are you with team marshmallow or team rain cloud?
