Hats off to the royals! When it comes to making a statement, there’s no better accessory than a striking hat or over-the-top fascinator, and royals sure know how to pull them off. Queen Elizabeth hardly steps out without her signature feather-embellished topper while Queen Maxima continues to impress with her extravagant collection of hats. The Dutch royal has proven that bigger is better when it comes to headpieces – so much so that we even dedicated an entire gallery to her alone!
