Danish Golden Jubilee: Extended Family & Royal Guests

Princess Benedikte used the occasion to debut a new hat in biscuit colour straw with wide cartwheel brim and straight-sided crown. The hat is trimmed in a bias hatband in the same woven fabric as the ensemble’s coat, looped on the side in a bow. While I’d have preferred the hatband to be a little shorter, the overall look is still wonderfully elegant.

Princess Nathalie of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg repeated her mother’s cream sinamay hat with wide upsweeping brim. We’ve previously seen this hat trimmed only with a wide sinamay hatband and it’s a nice change to see the large silk rose in apricot hues that Nathalie added to link the hat with her dress.

Danish Golden Jubilee

We have lots of royal events to catch up on! On the second weekend of September, celebrations were held to mark the 50th anniversary of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark’s accession to the throne. This included a service of thanksgiving held at Copenhagen Cathedral followed by a lunch on the royal yacht Dannebrog on Sunday, September 11.

Queen Margrethe repeated a pink beret with with side twist trim. It remains a great hat for her, the vibrant colour placing her firmly in the spotlight (as she should be for the celebration of this milestone!) and the hat’s scale and placement allowing her to shine. It remains such a great hat for her.

Princess Josephine wore a white silk hair bow (and a series of very amusing expressions!).

Princess Marie repeated a black headpiece with looped black silk organdie ribbons. This piece also does well for flatteringly framing the wearer’s face. Since we’ve seen Marie wear this primarily at memorial events, I would have preferred to see her in something a little more uplifting for this celebration. .
