Queen Margrethe took in the races on Saturday at Klampenborg Racecourse. For this outing, which saw her present The Queen’s Honorary Award, she repeated a hat we’ve not seen in several years. In royal purple felt, the design features a diagonally placed brim and bow trim on one side. A piece first worn for her Ruby Jubilee in 2012, it’s nice to see this vibrant hat trotted out again.
Also on Saturday, Crown Princess Mary officially opened a namesake bridge connecting West and North Zealand across Roskilde Fjord. For the event, she wore a new saucer hat in navy fur felt with sharply angled brim (upturned on one side, downturned on the other) trimmed with a felt bow and large silk flower.
The shape is a departure for Mary and while I don’t like the sharp angles of this design on her as much as some of her other, more classic, softer shapes, it’s great to see some variation in her millinery wardrobe. It also stood up admirably to some intense wind! As usual, the ensemble was beautifully styled, with a pop colour from her red dress.
Designer: Jane Taylor. It is the “Jujube” design from AW 2017
Previously Worn: This hat is new
On Sunday, the new M3 Cityringen metro line in Copenhagen was officially opened by its first, very royal passenger. For this inaugural ride, Queen Margrethe repeated her charcoal grey felt trilby with pompom flower trim. It’s a very chic hat (this is one of a very few royal pompoms that works!) that Margrethe wears very well.
