Queen Margrethe, Prince Henrik, Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and Princess Benedikte were all in attendance this morning for the official opening of Danish Parliament. As per tradition, the women were all in hats! Alas, it was all repeats today but a repeated hat is better than no hat at all, don’t you think?
Queen Margrethe wore her charcoal grey koosh ball trimmed trilby. It’s such a sharp little design, especially paired with that pop of magenta on her blouse.
Crown Princess Mary repeated her staple black wool hat with straw brim and double feather trim. We have seen this hat a lot, and with many different outfits and it always looks great.
Princess Marie wore the black looped ribbon fascinator we first saw on her last month. It’s a little sedate for a fascinator but Marie wears it well. I thought she looked quite polished and elegant.
Previously Worn: September 5, 2013
Princess Benedikte wore what I think might be a new hat. This chocolate brown wool bumper hat featured a tall, rolled upturned brim patterned with diagonal stripes. The stripes were an attractive touch although I’m not sure this style and colour is my favourite for Benedikte. We have seen her look so beautiful in more brightly coloured hats- I just don’t think this colour is for her.
Some minor quirks aside, they were an attractively hatted family today, weren’t they? Which one of these hats was your favourite?
