Norwegian Royals Celebrate Christmas

The Norwegian royal family attended Christmas Day church at the Holmenkollen Chapel in Oslo. Queen Sonja wore a grey-brown felt hat with rounded crown and short brim that was upturned around the back. The hat was trimmed with a wide band of ribbon around the crown that fanned into a flat rosette style bow on the side. While the hat is fine, I thought its shade was not a good pairing with her latte coloured coat. I think this is a case of too much mismatched brown in one ensemble.

  1. I think Queen Sonja, nailed it, with a capital NI. The shades of brown, the length of the coat , the hat and the jewels just pulled everything together. Love it all.

  2. I’m assuming that’s a photographer’s mark on Queen Sonja’s face in the top photo … yes, brown does seem to be a colour this year doesn’t it? (Thinking of Kate and Autumn at Sandringham too.)
