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?

A hat with a deeper crown, well done Daisy!
Love this on QM. The feminine pink with the menswear look is so on-trend. IIRC, both her daughters-in-law have successfully worn fedoras in the past as well.
I’m a fedora fan, so I have to admit my bias right away, but I think QM looks very sharp and smart in this outfit. A winner for me.
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!
She looks great! Very trim and well put together. I like the hat on her!
Yes, it harkens back to a stylish Dashiell Hammitt with a feminine touch. I agree – the coat being fitted tightens up the look for a nice overall effect.
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.
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!
I thought the same–very Katharine Hepburn-esque! 🙂
The Queen is definitely channeling Katharine Hepburn here, bravo Your Majesty!
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.
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.
Thanks jamiemid, you saved me the effort of drafting my own reply because you speak for me too.
