Queen Margrethe set sail Monday on the first week of her annual summer cruises aboard the Royal Yacht Dannebrog. Yesterday, she arrived in Kalundborg harbour for the start of a two day visit. After a welcome from the Royal Danish Life Guards, the Queen travelled by carriage to Bishop’s Palace for a reception; the rest of her day was filled with visits to a sports center, a volunteer-run hub of 62 social programs, and the lighthouse and museum and harbour in Røsnæs. For these events, she repeated her pale green bumper hat with curling detail and feathers on the side. This is undoubtedly one of Queen Margrethe’s best hats but we’ve seen it a lot and I’m ready for something new.
Today’s programme included visits to the local weaving association and nature and history interpretation center, the inauguration of a new heat pump at the power station and a rickshaw ride with cyclists from a local club. For these events, Queen Margrethe repeated her beige hat with inverted mixing bowl shaped crown and upturned kettle brim. There’s not much to say here except to quote a reader who once (now famously) commented, “That’s a whole lot of biscuit.” Indeed.
