    1. Rajashree, it is an old european fashionrule: A ladys hat is part of her outfit. She keeps it on even inside. If she wears a cap, she removes it, because a cap protects one from the cold and is not part of the outfit strictly speaking. (At least, that is what I learned from my granny.)

  3. Love Mathilde's look, especially the hat. The colour is great on her.

  4. Maxima has too often struck out with her hair, but this time she gets a five-star plus. If she is using a new hairdresser, she should stick with this one. And the hair style teamed with the great hat is an all around big winner.

    1. Dutch, supposedly. Belgium has 3 official languages, Dutch (Flemish), French and German, and, after all, Flemish is bastardised Dutch
