The Norwegian Royal Family visited Stortinget (the Norwegian Parliament) yesterday as part of celebrations for the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian constitution.
Queen Sonja repeated a white hat with a ruched navy and white polka dot sash around the crown. It’s a great hat shape for her but I think it’s time to replace the sash with a simple navy grosgrain ribbon.
Crown Princess Mette Marit repeated her white wool calot hat, again worn far back on her head (a little too far back, in my opinion). In the past, I have not warmed to this icy hat but its pairing today with her folk art inspired coat was perfect.
The photos released do not show a close look at Princess Astrid’s hat; she appears to be wearing a white fabric pillbox hat with a pork pie style recessed crown and a spray of feathers on the side. I believe it is the same hat she wore in New York in 2005, with the addition of some pink feathers.
Previously Worn: October 27, 2005
It looks like a lovely celebration was enjoyed by the family (including young Princess Ingrid) and I expect we will see a number of Norwegian royal hats throughout the weekend as festivities continue. Are there any hats that stood out to you in this group?
