Danish Opening of Parliament 2012

The Danish Royal Family attended the Opening of Parliament in Copenhagen today. Queen Margrethe repeated the wonderful purple ensemble she wore at her Ruby Jubilee in February of this year.

Mary looked great in a structured black wide-brimmed hat also designed by Susanne Juul that we’ve seen her wear before. I like this hat- the wool crown and straw brim make make it interesting and light. Mary must like it too because she has the exact same hat in purple.


I thought the star of the day was Princess Marie, in this adorable beige pillbox. I’m not usually a fan of beige hats but this one, worn with a beautiful chignon and button pearl earrings, looked beautiful.

The Queen’s sister, Princess Benedikte, wore a Susanne Juul stacked red wool felt beret. I thought the asymetrical shape looked great on her and livened up her plaid suit.
