Scandinavian Royals in Norway

The Swedish and Danish monarchs traveled to Norway last weekend to take part in the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian constitution. One of the weekend’s events was unveiling a statue of King Christian Frederik (an interesting fellow who was King of both Norway and Denmark). Queen Margrethe of Denmark did the honors in her pale blue suit and matching brimless hat with pork pie style crown, horizontally pleated sides and flower pinwheel on the side.

Queen Sonja repeated a cream picture hat with side flower (not visible here) and pink feathers. Sonja often chooses small hats and I love to see her in a larger picture hat such as this one.

  1. Both Queens look wonderful-except for the pale stockings. I love Queen Margrethe’s pose with the unveiling! perfect. Thank you for the pictures.

  2. I think Queen Margrethe looks splendid here. I really like the hat, and I agree with Jamesb that her unveiling pose is magnificent, in the fullest sense of the word.

  3. What I really love is her grand pose as she’s unveiling that statue – she’s got a Queenly sense of theatre has Marge hasn’t she!

  4. I love that color on Queen Margrethe. She is so very pale that she often looks washed out, but this color really suits her. I think I might like the hat a little better without the pinwheel flower.
