No, I believe that hats were not required. That said, I can't blaim the lady for wanting to go all out the one day in her life she gets to eat diner next to the King.

It's obvious that dress code wasn't properly specified. Maxima wore gala-dress more fitting for white-tie event, some ladies wore long dresses or cocktail dresses, some ladies wore daytime outfits.
It was a dinner for people from different social groups. The palace had to specify dress code clearly.

Well, firstly I think the lady in question looked fantastic. I think had the hat been an etiquette or protocol issue, she would have been asked to remove it - but in doing so, that in itself might have seemed rude when she had quite obviously spent much time and effort on her appearance.

The biggest faux-pas you can commit etiquette wise is to point out the mistakes of others.
