Danish Queen Sails Into Nyborg

The first first leg of this year’s summer cruise concluded yesterday in Nyborg. For this day of visits in the region, Queen Margrethe repeated her mint green bumper hat with cuffed brim that curls at the side with a pair of feathers. The hat is covered in the same wool silk crepe as the ensemble’s matching coat and dress.

We’ve seen this hat a few times, I wasn’t going to devote an entire post to it until I saw the following photos showing a clear side view of that curled brim cuff in detail. The cuff wraps around the hat and at its overlap, is sliced horizontally into two ribbons that curl up on to the hat’s crown. It’s an ingenious design detail that adds so much to this small hat and is so beautifully executed it looks far more simple, in terms of construction, than it is.

For H.M. Dronningen har årets sidste forårsdag i dag budt på arkæologiske udgravninger i midten af Nyborg, balletopvisning og besøg på et beskyttet værksted. Sommertogtet med Kongeskibet Dannebrog bragte i dag Dronningen til Nyborg Kommune. Da Hendes Majestæt i formiddags ankom til den fynske købstad klokken 10.00, var mange nyborggensere mødt frem for at byde Dronningen velkommen. Før Dronningen tog hul på dagens alsidige program kørte Hendes Majestæt sammen med borgmesterparret gennem byen i karet med eskorte fra Gardehusarregimentets hesteskadron. Dronningens årlige sommertogt er en tradition, der går tilbage til Christian 10. Som den første regent gjorde Kongen dengang årlige togter i danske farvande til en fast del af sit program. Traditionen er siden videreført af Frederik 9. og Dronningen, der begge har lagt vægt på at bruge Kongeskibet Dannebrog til at være i kontakt med alle dele af riget.Tidligere på ugen besøgte Dronningen Køge Kommune. Dagens besøg er sidste stop på sommertogtet.

  1. Oh my, has it really been two years since we last saw this? Most unfortunate considering this is one of her best looks, and it’s even better getting to observe all the intricate details this time!

  2. My Danish queen looks great! I love the mint green color, and the curled cuffed brim is unique, as well as wonderful. She always give me the impression of approach-ability, and a friendly bon vivant-ness. Skoal!

  3. Wow! Other than the fresh color — so pretty for Margrethe — this hat has never stood out to me. Now that I’m seeing this nifty detail, I really like it.

  4. You really need to look back at all the photos of every outing of this hat to get the full effect, now that it has been photographed from so many different angles. I like that double curl more each time I see it. It surprises me that Margrethe would have multiple outfits to go with such a stand-out color, but of the ones we have seen over the years, this is my favorite, though I preferred the way the scarf/blouse was arranged at the neck in earlier appearances. In today’s photos, it (the neckline) can’t decide whether it wants to be in or out!

  5. The photos really do this hat a great justice. I think from afar, I dismiss it, but looking at the beautiful detail more closely and the pretty color, the hat is a terrific design.
