Queen Margrethe placed four handmade Christmas characters in the attic of Fredensborg Castle to explore the treasures stored there and the past stories they tell of the Danish royal family. Each day of advent, the Danish Monarchy’s instagram page will feature part of this ongoing story– the first clip yesterday (below) shows the Queen setting the characters up for this adventure (with a bowl of Danish rice pudding to sustain them).

  1. Princess Nobuko visited Fukushima Prefecture November 19-21

  2. Hope you treat yourself to that beautiful trilby, HQ! I’ll take the Jolanta Katabova.

    The Marc Millinery burgundy percher is the hat I’d most like to see on a royal head this holiday season.

    I didn’t realize at first that there is a tiger hiding in the flowers of the Amanda Lyn percher — very unusual embellishment.

    • I’ll join you, Mitten Mary, in the Jolanta Katabova hat! What a gorgeous color and beautiful flower trim!
      Thank you for pointing out the tiger in the Amanda Lyn percher. I totally missed it and went back to find it after reading your comment.
