Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik of Denmark visited Dyrehaven yesterday to see recently completed renovations on the Eremitageslottet (Hermitage Castle). She wore the same royal blue and white hat she wore for her grandson Prince Nikolai’s confirmation in mid-May this year. Today’s visit provides the first close-up view of this hat and I like it even more than I did the first time we saw it! It’s a surprisingly simple design with a very classic shape and restrained embellishment. The highlight of this hat is the two-toned brim that creates the most lovely effect around Margrethe’s face (perhaps a royal blue under-brim would overwhelm her pale features?). I cannot think of many other hats that have two-toned brims like this one and I think it works very well. What do you think?
