Last weekend, Queen Margrethe of Denmark toured the exhibition ‘Transformations – Classical Sculpture in Colour’ at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek museum in Copenhagen. For this visit, Margrethe wore a grey straw hat we have not seen in a long time- so long that this is its first appearance here on Royal Hats! With a rounded grey straw crown and very lightly woven grey straw brim, this hat was trimmed with a large melon coloured feather and band around the crown in the same print as Margrethe’s coordinating blouse (see a better view of this hat here). I love the lightness of the transparent straw brim, the shape and the scale of this hat on Margrethe, and how the pale grey contrasts with those unexpected hits of orange. I’m just not sure about that oddly placed feather trim. What do you think?
