Last Friday, Queen Margrethe attended the Anniversary Parade of The Royal Guard at the Royal Life Guards barracks in Gothersgade, Copenhagen. Each year at this event, Margrethe presents the Queen’s Clock award – an award of merit to a member of the guards. This year, she attended the event in a new hat. In brightest fuchsia, the straw piece follows a very traditional shape with rounded, flat sided crown and downward facing brim. The hat appears to be trimmed in navy ribbon embroidered with pink and white flowers, which is wrapped twice around the crown and topped with a bunch of silk flowers on the side.
The hat is rather simple but receives a boost from its pairing with Queen Margrethe’s navy trimmed fuchsia suit. It is a lot of vibrant colour for one ensemble but the touches of navy in the floral fabric used on her blouse and trim on the hat provide grounding and contrast to make it work.
