The Danish Royal Family welcomed Turkish President Abdullah Gül and Mrs.Gül yesterday for a state visit to Denmark. To greet the Turkish couple at the airport, Queen Margrethe repeated her white flat disk hat trimmed with white fur. This remains one of my favourite of Margrethe’s hats although the whole look is a bit too icy white, in my opinion, for the start of spring.
Crown Princess Mary repeated a grey calot hat with leaf trim on one side. Her hairstyle complimented this hat beautifully; I also thought this hat was an understated compliment to Mary’s grey coat and black dress. I’m not usually a fan of closely fitting calot hats (they look like helmets!) but I thought this one was very fitting for today’s welcome ceremony.
Designer: unknown. My guess is Susanne Juul
Previously Worn: January 14, 2012
Princess Marie topped off her tailored coat with a pink cocktail hat. This hat, comprised of multiple petals and a feather pouf center, was far from understated but I suppose it worked well enough on Marie. Again, I thought her low side chignon was the perfect hairstyle for this hat. It is nice to see Marie in some colour although I’m just not sure this hat was the right one for this event.
Previously Worn: I believe this headpiece is new.
Princess Benedikte looked elegant in a brimless black hat trimmed with a spray of black feathers. I think I may have preferred a navy hat with her coat and dress but this hat is lovely on her, especially with that hit of fuchsia lipstick.
It’s lovely to see the whole Danish royal family in attendance at these events. Which royal hat was your favourite today?
