At the opening session of the Dutch Parliament season 2011/2012 Her Majesty Queen Beatrix talked about tough economic times ahead and the required belt tightening.
And what better way to convey the message than lead by royal example. Belt tightening aside, Princess Maxima, the most glamorous member of the Dutch royal family, does not shy away from recycling her accessories. The charming floppy hat seen on the Princess a few days ago in Rome where she presided over the opening of the Mondrian exhibition was part of her regal ensemble for the Prinsjes day 2011.
On two occasions — royally classy.
