On Sunday, the monarchs of Denmark and Sweden each attended the installation of bishops in their countries. Queen Margrethe of Denmark was present at the installation of Henrik Wigh-Poulsen as bishop of Aarhus, resplendent in the mint green bumper hat she first wore for her birthday earlier this year. These photos shoe the lovely curled detail on the side of this bumper hat’s brim, a wonderfully creative touch that I think sets this hat apart. My only concern is that Margrethe seems as excited about this hat as I am (it has been worn four times since April)… I just hope we don’t see it too often.
King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia were at Upsala Cathedral on Sunday for the ordinations of Mikael Mogren as bishop of Västerås and Johan Dalman as bishop of Strängnäs. Queen Silvia repeated her turquoise straw pillbox hat for the occasion. It’s a simple hat that elevated to greatness thanks to its fantastic colour.
I think both of these hats are prime examples of small-scale millinery done very well. What do you think?
