She looks nice and her haircut doesn't look that bad from here, but I think that's because her headscarf is covering it! This is off-topic but I love the second photo of Albert reaching over to Juan Carlos and Sofia to have a chat with them. A nice gesture.

The headscarf is a lace mantilla often worn royal & non royal ladies in the presence of the Pope or at a Solemn Mass or Funeral.

1 Queen Paola went to a hairdresser. But she wears badly her mantllla
2. Her coat and dress are recycled and too narrow
3. her Legs !! she should have worn a long dress as the Queen os Spain.
Very disappointed! Queen Mathilde should have done better

A longer dress would have been move appropriate & majestic looking as Queen Sofia.

Thanks for the info, An Ard Ri. I thought that it was a different headpiece from a mantilla, as I thought mantillas were only like Queen Sofia's. (I'm not Catholic, so am unaware of some traditions.)

That's no problem,black lace mantillas are also worn by royal ladies at funerals ,here's Queen Paola wearing one at the funeral Prince Alexandre of Belgium in 2009.

Queen Sofia's Mantilla is slightly different to a regular one & is often referred to as a 'Spanish Mantilla'.

All Queen Paola was missing was the wimple and veil and her Mother Superior look was complete.

I don't like her "hat". It looks like a large dead leaf that she glued sequins on.

I also don't like her hat. It looks like she could turn it over and serve tortilla chips in it.

I agree, she looked awful. It is not her style. She was and still is a beautiful woman. 76, today is not old. Who ever said it looked angry, like if I have to go to this thing, I just wear this. The hat was one of the worst hats I have ever see. Just not like her.

The suit is fine. The "thing" on her head is just terrible.
