Queen Margrethe embarked on the first leg of her annual summer cruise this week, spending Monday and Tuesday in the municipality of Silkeborg. For her arrival Monday at City Hall and a day of events that included visits to the museum Jorn and Neder Kjærsholm manor house, the Danish queen repeated her hat with ecru straw crown and brim sandwiched between a pair of curved grey straw brims curved both upward and downward.
The hat stands out for its unique shape, which is tempered by the neutral colour scheme. It’s interesting and always draws me in for a closer look- something I like a royal hat to do. Grey isn’t my favourite colour on Queen Margrethe but it worked, thanks to the pop of colour she added to the ensemble with her canary yellow blouse.
Yesterday, the tour of Silkeborg continued with visit to an eco-minded demolition company and art therapy program. For these visits, she repeated her natural straw hat with domed crown and short brim with upturn around one half (this time, the half around the front), trimmed with a hatband in the same plaid as her skirt. Not overly exciting, it gets a nod for it’s nautical-ness.
