Queen Margrethe had a series of engagements last week that we need to catch up on! Last Thursday, August 29, Queen Margrethe opened the exhibition “Denmark and the Russian Empire 1600-1900” at Frederiksborg Castle. Later in the day, she commemorated the events of August 29, 1943 (when the Danish government resigned in response to a Nazi ultimatum given the day before) with a memorial ceremony the Memorial Park in Hellerup. Margrethe repeated her straw hat with trilby-style brim slightly raised around the back and wide plaid hatband.

On Friday August 30, the Danish Queen visited the Aarhus State Gymnasium (a secondary school) to unveil a new building extension and outdoor sculpture. For this engagement, Margrethe repeated the same hat, changing out the hatband for one in the same jade green as her jacket. The button on the hatband is a nice touch. Changing out hatbands to get more mileage out of a royal hat is something we seldom see… or maybe, seldom notice?!

On Saturday, August 31, Queen Margrethe took part in celebrating Bjerringbro’s 150th anniversary. For this event, she brought out one of her old standbys- this red straw picture hat featuring a textured open weave straw detail on one side of the hat. Margrethe looks great in red and this classic shape and a large brim suits her well.

LOVE the red hat on her! I think red suits her.
I LOVE the navy and red ensemble! The tartan hat was a high point too, but I’d rather it not be paired with the tartan dress. Too matchy match. Well done Daisy.
I really love the red hat on her, red is her color, it brightens her up. I also like the wide brim hats better then any other on her. She is one classy lady/queen for sure!
I agree. She looks so pretty in red. I like the green hat to. This queen looks so good in bright color hats.
She does look real nice in bright colors. I like the red hat except for the nubby net covering the hat. It looks like someone wrapped a red old fishing net on her poor hat.
The first 2 she looks very ‘tourist’ casual – like a look she appears in when on her own vacations. I would think she might dress up a bit more for each of those occasions.
I might like the first two if they were worn with more flattering outfits (I’m afraid she looks very dowdy). The red hat is not only a great color and shape for Daisy but is worn with an outfit that actually looks good on her. Since the posts where you show the same hat with different outfits, I’m thinking that the outfit is just as important as that hat!
The first two hats look like the same hat to me just different bands, (one plaid, the other green). I prefer the red hat. She does look better in larger brim hats I think. Red is a good color on her.
At first glance, I also thought they were the same hat. If you look closely at the brim, however, you’ll notice that the brim on the hat with the green band upturns just slightly on the side.
