Queen Margrethe has been in the Schleswig-Holstein region of Germany this week on a visit related to the upcoming 100th anniversary of the demarcation of the border which will be celebrated in 2020.
For the first day of this visit on Tuesday, she repeated her new-ish muted coral straw hat with navy hatband, tied in a side bow. The photos of this outing show the hat at best view we’ve seen so far. Most surprising is the colour, which is less of a terra-cotta shade as it first appeared and more of a muted coral with pink undertones. It’s a great colour to pair with navy and, I think, works better on Margrethe’s skin tone than some previous photos were it looked more orange.
For the second day of her visit yesterday in Flensburg, Margrethe repeated her red bumper hat with side bow in the same navy and red painterly print as her dress. Fabric covered hats, such as this one (it looks to be a wool or silk crepe) sometimes look one note when paired with matching coats but the print on this ensemble lifts everything and makes it work.
Today in Dannewerk, Haithabu and Friedrichstadt, Queen Margrethe repeated her mint green bumper hat covered in the same wool silk crepe as its matching coat and dress. Trimmed with cuffed brim that splits into side curls and pair of feathers, the hat is as good on this, its 9th outing as it was on its first. Whoever cares for Queen Margrethe’s hats certainly does a fine job.
We’ve seen each of these hats before- do you notice anything new about them on these outings?
