Danish Queen Presents Military Award

On Wednesday, Queen Margrethe awarded ‘The Queen’s Clock’ military award following a parade at The Royal Life Guard in Copenhagen. For this event, she wore a new bumper hat in spotted grey sealskin with a matching coat. As some of you have mentioned in the comments below, the pieces were gifted to Margrethe during her visit to Greenland in July 2015.

Previously Worn: this hat is new
Points to Margrethe for wearing these gifts. The hat shape is not particularly successful in my mind- the crown is too pointed to be a true bumper and the black bow on the side seems completely at odds with the design.

  1. I am trying very hard not to look at the coat – it is such an unflattering design.
    As Margrethe’s bumpers go, this is passable, thanks to its softness and volume.
    and here’s the Queen yesterday in a very bold brimmed hat which I think we’ve seen before:

  2. I would be very surprised if this is faux leopard. It really looks like seal skin to me. I spend half the year in Newfoundland, and am very familiar with this fur. Having said that, I expect I have opened a “can of worms” and will begin a debate about the use of fur. This was not my intention. Seal skin is commonly worn in northern countries where this industry is long standing.
