This year marks 100 years since the southern part of Denmark, Sønderjylland, which was a German territory from 1864 to 1920, returned to Denmark. While official reunification celebrations for this anniversary will occur in early July, a memorial service to mark this centennial year took place yesterday at at Copenhagen Cathedral. Queen Margrethe repeated her ivory felt domed percher hat with upturned cuff brim, trimmed with felt and fur looped bows.
We’ve not seen this hat in several years and it’s such a good one on the Danish queen. It’s ‘snow queen’ in the best possible way, the hat and matching coat pairing to create a quintessential Scandinavian winter royal look that’s wonderfully regal and luxe. The use of fur on hats is, admittedly, very controversial, and while I’m usually not a fan, I think this hat would suffer without it.
What do you think of Queen Margrethe’s wintry look yesterday?
