Chapeaux! The Hat Exhibition has been opened

On 22 March Princess Beatrix opened an exhibition of her own hats at Palace Het Loo in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands. Although expected, she didn’t wear a hat, probably the best in this case as there were already enough hats. The next day ‘Chapeaux! Hats of Queen Beatrix’ opened to the public and will remain open […]
