350th Anniversary of Danish Citadel

Last Wednesday, October 28, Queen Margrethe of Denmark attended the 350th anniversary of the Citadel fortress in Copenhagen. For this event, Queen Margrethe repeated her charcoal grey trilby with modified pork pie style crown and feather pouff on the side. This hat, with its modern shape, remains one of my favourites in Margrethe’s hat closet and I thought the pop of pink in Margrethe’s blouse kept her whole ensemble away from the grey doldrums. We don’t often see queens in fedoras but I vote for a few more for Margrethe. What do you think?

  1. If I’m not mistaken, this is a departure in colour, shape and style from her more typical choices but it works well on all fronts. The Queen is a very conservative dresser, even for her position, but this look offers a little more zest. Glad to see it!

  2. I’m not a fan of fedoras on any woman. With her fedora and double-breasted, belted coat, she appears very masculine – in my opinion only.

  3. She looks fabulous. The feather addition softens the harsh ‘man’ lines of the fedora and really works with this outfit. I find I am tried of seeing so many fedoras with their popular ‘hip’ resurgence in the later 90s-2000s in pop culture. But this one harkens back to the good look they had in the 30s and 40s with a modern (all her own) twist. Bravo!

  4. Nice and the coat fits better too compared to some of the jackets in the past.
    I agree about the fedora and how well many royals can/ could wear it.

  5. I love the hat shape, and it always has been a favorite of mine. It suits her face and personality. It gives her coverage without hiding her face. I am hoping for a fedora revival on all the Royal ladies, because they suit almost everyone’s face and body type. It manages to be dressy and sporty at the same time. I think this is one of her majesty’s best looks. She looks very happy and very pretty.
