Catching Up With Danish Royals

The past two days have been busy ones for the Danish royal family. Yesterday, Princess Benedikte, Princess Elisabeth and the Count and Countess of Rosenborg attended the opening of an exhibition on legendary Russian court jeweller Fabergé and his connection to the Danish Royals at the museum at Koldinghus Castle. For this event, Princess Benedikte repeated her raspberry straw wide-brimmed picture hat with a narrow band around the crown. We have seen this hat with a variety of different ensembles and I thought its pairing with her grey dress and pearls hit just the right note. I love it when an ensemble shows a hat off to greatest effect and such was the case here. It’s such a beautiful piece on Benedikte.

Princess Elisabeth wore a hat of cerulean blue straw with a gently upturned brim and what looks to be a straw bow on the side. The combination of blue and green in her ensemble was unexpectedly fresh and I only wish there were better photos so we could have a closer peek. You’ll notice that in the lower photo, Countess Susie did not wear a hat.

Today, Princess Benedikte was on hand to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Danish National Association for eating disorders and self-harm. For this event, she looked to be wearing a bronze hat although I believe the lighting is playing tricks on it and it is the same coffee coloured straw designer that she wore for the Swedish King’s birthday festivities two weeks ago (the crown and brim shapes on both hats are identical, making me surmise it is the same piece). Interestingly, it looks like the large flower that appeared on this hat last time was removed, leaving a more simple bow embellishment. Hopefully, the flower trim will return at a future wearing and give us a chance to catch a better view.

Any thoughts on this trio of Danish royal hats?

  1. Both hats are flattering and incredibly chic. The first photo of Princess Beneditke with the little girl is adorable!

  2. I love this color of hat on Benedikte, especially when paired with the dove grey outfit. Interesting how the brim of this hat has been up and down multiple times; not certain how I feel about it swooping down so low this time, but overall this is my favorite looks of these three. Benedikte’s other hat looks pretty standard for her.

    I wish we could see more of Elisabeth’s hat, but it does look good on her, and the color combo of darker blue and aqua is fantastic!

  3. The hats on both occasions suit Princess Beneditke so well and go beautifully with her dresses. In the bottom picture, I almost thought I was looking at Princess Anne (Mountbatten-Windsor)!
    My late mother, who lived in the days of hats and gloves, was a lover of navy blue and emerald green together.
