Catching Up With the Danish Queen

On May 23, Queen Margrethe visted Herlufsholms, the oldest boarding school in Denmark, to commemorate the school’s 450-year anniversary. Along with attending a service to mark the anniversary, the Danish Queen unveiled a new sculpture in Nyhave of artist Eva Steen Kristensen, inaugurated the newly renovated central Red Square and launched 450 red balloons. For these festivities, Queen Margrethe repeated the mint green bumper hat she first wore at her 75th birthday celebrations in April. It remains a great hat for her and I thought the addition of her patterned scarf added some much needed pattern to her all-green ensemble.

  1. Queen Margrethe looks good in this shade of green. The texture and cut of her suit are spot on. I like this hat, and I am not usually a big fan of bumpers. I like that the design is interesting and a little quirky, with curving lines. There are better photos of it in the link if people want to get a better look at it. The young Prince is a handsome devil!

  2. The Queen looks VERY pretty. I like the hat, the color of it and the suit, and the addition of the scarf. NICE!

  3. I like this hat. There are better pictures of it on the link to the previous wearing. It’s a good scale and color.

    As an aside, Prince Nikolai sure looks like his papa!

  4. This mint green color sits the Queen well, and the cut of her suit is perfect for her. So many of her clothes look too big for her. I think this is a flattering hat for her.

  5. the green hat is a good shape for Daisy and I agree that her scarf elevates her suit from drab to lovely

  6. She looks wonderful. The color is very flattering, and the suit does fit nicely. Best of all, that smile! I admire Queen Margrethe for knowing what she likes and paying no attention to current fads or trends. Like Princess Anne, she wants to be appropriate and comfortable, and she is.
