It's been far too long since we've had royal wedding hattery fun on the blog, hasn't it? Good thing the Dutch royals were happy to oblige us today!

Princess Margarita looks radiant here, doesn't she? The red is super flattering, the hat is a lesson on how you can wear something small without just sticking feathers on your head, and she's glowing for a genuine reason: she's expecting her second baby. Congratulations, Margarita!
Another new princess on the docket today: this is Princess Margarita of Bourbon-Parma, Countess of Colorno; she's the elder daughter of Carlos Hugo and Irene (and twin sister of Prince Jaime). Margarita's been sort of a complicated figure in the Dutch royal family; in a case that sort of echoed her parents' marriage, Margarita's first husband was not a favorite of the royal family, and a series of scandals during their short-lived marriage led to the family's distancing themselves from Margarita for a time (she didn't get to come to Alex and Máx's wedding, etc.).
But, on the bright side, Margarita divorced husband number one, and since her marriage to hubs number two (Tjalling ten Cate, pictured with her above), relations with the family have improved.
Margarita's veil is also lovely; here's a better look at the lace:
