Queen Margrethe visited the Home Guard at Skive Barracks and the Citadel in Copenhagen yesterday to present two regiments with new colours. For these events, she repeated her vibrant turquoise hat with domed, indented Pork Pie style crown. I have long thought this hat’s success is due to its wide, darker blue velvet hatband which injects contrasting colour and texture to the otherwise one note ensemble. It’s amazing how a simple hatband can make such a difference.
Today, the Danish Queen boarded the royal yacht Dannebrog for the first time this season. She used the occasion to debut a new hat in navy felt with rounded crown, gently raised U-shaped brim and wide silk hatband with tied bow at the side. The neutral piece is a good addition to Margrethe’s hat closet and one we’ll undoubtedly see again during this year’s summer cruises.
