On Saturday, Queen Sonja of Norway and Queen Margrethe of Denmark attended a seminar on the bicentenary of the Norwegian Constitution and unveiled the sculpture “Dobbeltlegeme” by Morten Stræde. For these final events held in Copenhagen, the two queens repeated navy ensembles with coordinating hats. Queen Margrethe wore her much loved red straw picture hat featuring a textured open weave straw detail on one side of the hat.
Queen Sonja repeated the white straw hat with cloche-style crown wrapped in a ruched navy and white sash that she wore for her Stortinget visit last week. The photos released today show this hat to much greater effect and remove my previous misgivings about it. The side view of this hat below, which includes the lovely large folded bow, is particularly pretty.
I always love seeing members of different royal houses at joint engagements and thought these two queens looked quite smashing today. What do you think of their hats?
