On Friday, Queen Margrethe’s visit to Rome took her to the Presidential Palace Palazzo Quirinale where she met with Italian President Sergio Mattarella. For this meeting, the Danish Queen repeated her purple felt slightly domed pillbox with sequin trim and side feather spray.
It’s a great hat for Margrethe- in scale, shape but particularly in colour, as she wears such saturated, jewel tones so well. On the hat’s first outing we didn’t get a look at the accompanying dress- clearly, the two pieces were designed to go together, with the horizontal bodice pleats making subtle reference to the black sequins that trim the perimeter of the hat. I think t’s an elegant and striking ensemble.
