Queen Margrethe is one of the most colourful monarchs in terms of fashion and millinery. When it comes to green hats, however, she’s nearly as shy as the other monarchs we have looked at with just two green hats worn since 2000:
Introduced: July 8, 1999; April 16, 2016
The two styles couldn’t possibly be more different! Created nearly 20 years apart, the pieces both reflect the millinery trends of the time, tweaked with interesting embellishments. They are both interesting pieces that I think require a certain presence to carry off well- perhaps that’s what makes them fit for a queen. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait another decade or two before Margrethe adds another green piece to her inventory!
I have run out of time to complete an inventory of Queen Elizabeth’s green hats and beg your forgiveness. I’ll put this together later in April when I’m back.
