Final Day of Danish Summer Cruise

For the final stop today on the 2014 summer tour aboard the royal yacht Dannebrog, Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik sailed to Vesthimmerlands Kommune. For their trip ashore to the town of Aars, Queen Margrethe repeated the red straw hat with daisy trim, nautical flag printed dress and red blazer we saw her wear in Ringkøbing on Wednesday. We have seen this hat enough times that there is nothing new to add… I suppose the only thing to say is how fun it is to see the royal couple clearly having a marvelous time.

  1. I love this outfit and I do think Queen Marg looks great in red, however, it’s too soon to wear it again. I even do a longest possible rotation on my own work clothes. It makes me wonder if it was washed since the last wear, or if she decided to dirty it out by a second wear before sending it to the laundry.

  2. I love the photo of QM burying her nose in that rose. Nothing better than the perfume of a beautiful rose. She looks quite lost in thought. Nice.

  3. What is the problem here, it is a good thing that QM does this, it shows she is a thrifty lady who knows the value of money. I wear things again and again and again, not the same day or day after but I do repeat my clothes. Who doesn’t in this day and age, we are not all filthy rich that we can just throw clothes away once worn…..that would be a very foolish thing to do. I admire her for this, I think she is a very intelligent woman and knows the people will value this in her. As for her hat……….I love it and I love red on her, it makes her brighter and more cheerful, as red is my very favorite color, all should wear it when they want to be seen and heard. I’ll take the hat any day Your Majesty, just let me know when.

  4. Good for them. Shows they have respect for costs and not trying to pressure women into feeling obligated to buy something new for every occasion.

  5. Please stop complaining about Queens wearing their clothes and hats more than once. It would be very irresponsible for them to wear a new outfit every day. I am getting very tired of your complaining.

    • I wouldn’t do the “This or That” feature or include previous wearings for each royal hat if I thought royals should wear new clothes and hats every day!

      That being said, does anyone else think that Queen Margrethe’s repeat of the same hat, dress and jacket today after wearing it just 2 days earlier is a little odd?

      • I respect the royals wearing their clothes and hats more than once but wearing the same work outfit in the space of 3 days is not something I would do myself!

      • I think Camilla and Queen Elizabeth have a better “wardrobe rotation” with more space in between each time they wear the same thing. I agree that the same outfit the same week is odd.
