Queen Maxima takes style cue from Meghan Markle at Prince's Day

The Dutch royals stepped out in The Hague to open the parliamentary year

Queen Maxima was dressed to impress at Prinsjesdag (Prince’s Day) 2019. The mom of three, 48, turned heads stepping out on Tuesday, September 17, wearing a wine-colored dress by Dutch designer Jan Taminiau. The elegant gown featured beaded caped shoulders with a peek-a-boo cut out at the chest. Maxima, who is never one to shy away from a fabulous chapeau, complemented her look with a matching felt beret reportedly by royal-loved milliner Philip Treacy.

The Dutch Queen's stylish hat is reminiscent of the one Meghan Markle wore for her first Christmas at Sandringham with the British royal family in 2017, back when she was engaged to Prince Harry. For the occasion, the former American actress wore a brown Philip Treacy topper that resembles Maxima’s latest ruby-colored hat.
