Princess Benedikte made a return to royal engagements on Sunday (following her husband, Prince Richard’s unexpected death), attending the Danish Osteoporosis Society’s anniversary in Aarhus. She wore a new hat for the event in royal purple straw, trimmed with a pink hatband and large grey and burgundy flower at the side. The flower looks to be the same one as has adorned her navy straw hat, leading me to suspect it is a removable embellishment- something Danish royal milliner Susanne Juul has done before. Princess Benedikte wears this shade of purple well and the combination of trim on the hat and her pale pink suit unexpectedly works.
Designer: I strongly suspect Susanne Juul
Previously Worn: this hat is new
Yesterday, Queen Margrethe, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary sailed into Oslo aboard the Danish royal yacht Dannebrog. Queen Margrethe repeated the new navy hat with wide hatband we saw her debut on May 3.
Designer: likely Per Falk Hansen
Previously Worn: May 3, 2017
Thoughts about this Danish pair of royal hats?
