Queen Margrethe wrapped up her visit to the Schleswig-Holstein region in northern Germany yesterday, a visit that has been a prelude to next year’s 100 year anniversary of the 1920 plebescite that resulted in Northern Schleswig reunifying with Denmark and central Schleswig voting to remain with Germany. For this final day of engagements, she repeated her navy and cream hat with slightly flared brim and straight-sided, flat crown.
The proportions of this hat are excellent on Margrethe, as is the classic colour scheme. The use of the same fabric on the hat’s crown and the ensemble’s jacket isn’t my favourite touch (I would have preferred plain navy to make it wearable with other outfits) but it works, thanks to all of the neutralizing cream in the rest of the look. What sets the hat apart from others in Queen Margrethe’s wardrobe, however, is the jaunty angle it has been designed to be placed on the head. SO chic!

This year, Danish millinery Mathilde Thoe Førster has made a few hats for both Queen Margrethe and Princess Benedikte and it’s great to see them both embracing the work of a new milliner, particularly when it’s as good as this. I’d love to see a few other royals expand the milliners they regularly work with.
