Danish Royal Couple Visit Croatia

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik of Denmark have been on a shortvisit to Croatia this week. For their arrival yesterday in Zagreb, Margrethe repeated the pale blue bumper hat we saw her recently wear for the opening of parliament (a hat we have seen so frequently this year, I have simply run out of words to talk about it).

Today, the Danish Queen gave us a delightful surprise in the debut of a new hat! Queen Margrethe has worn numerous hats with upfolded brims (like the one above as well as this one, this one and this one) and while they can be reminiscent of sailor hats, the vibrant burgundy color of this hat enables it to stand on its own. The hat is embellished by a pair of chocolate and cream striped feathers that, despite being a common millinery trim, take on modern, creative and striking look. I like the embellishment and colour of this hat much more than its shape and am curious what you, dear readers, think o f it.

  1. I love the burgundy color on the Queen and I like the hat which appears to have a small feather brooch pinned in. I like her pale blue bumper hat also, but I’m getting bored seeing it again and again, and the pale blue, though a lovely color, seems to wash her out. I don’t like the big pussy bows on either outfit, as they are too fussy.

  2. Our delightful Queen really does not care about fashion – she is above fashion. She looks best in unfussy clean lines, which is why I am no fan of the short jackets and fussy bows here. Her hats should balance her proportions, and larger brimmed hats would be better than the small ones she prefers.

  3. I think she looks just fine. I like both hats, but the new one I like better. The feather detail is nice and adds a little visual interest. I respect QM for sticking to what she likes. It is, after all, her uniform. I’d like a better view of the brooch she is wearing, though…

  4. Although the burgundy jacket was poorly fitted, the outfit put color in her face, and the hat wasn’t over powering. The light blue outfit, while attractive, washed her out and was somewhat boring.

  5. More so than any other Royal, she knows what she likes and she sticks to it. I give her points for that, and if the results are less than spectacular, I give her credit for that too. She just is not a woman who cares about fashion. She likes to be comfortable and she keeps to it, leaving the fashion parade to Mary and Marie. I like the burgundy color and the pale blue. The dress/jacket thing almost looks like a uniform at this point, and maybe for her, it is.

  6. No one can accuse Magarethe of being a clothes horse. She really must have the most minimal wardrobe of any royal lady. For someone so creative in other aspects of her life this is strange. It seems that only in her evening wear does she show her creative side. By the way, what does she have in her hair at the State Dinner? On my monitor it looks like a small black comb. Any suggestions? (Of course she is recycling that dark blue and white lace gown………)

  7. “A brooch of gold leaves” .. looks to me they’re more like feathers, which could have been a little bit bigger or a little bit more striking or something to tunr a perfectly serviceable hat into something memorable.

  8. It is hard to look at the hat when her jacket is so poorly fitted. This seems to happen often. The whole outfit would have been better in a monatone of burgandy . The blue outfit feels worn out. I like seeing the royals observe a good budget but it is alright to spend a bit of money. Disappointed. Add I think she is an accomplished person and deserves a lot of credit.
