The collection includes pillows, furniture, table linen, advent calendars, clothing and accessories, including a pair of clutch bags the Danish queen made for each of her daughter-in-laws.
For this visit, Queen Margrethe repeated the aubergine and red boater hat covered in the same fabrics as her dress and jacket.
This is this hat’s second outing and it remains a winner, thanks to its unexpected unexpected colour scheme, excellent scale and flawless execution. And the jaunty angle the Danish queen wears it- well, that’s perfection.
Designer: Mathilde Førster
Previously Worn: Nov 27, 2020
Princess Benedikte joined her sister for this visit in a new periwinkle brimmed hat with a pink hatband. It’s a great addition to her wardrobe- Benedikte wears the classic shape well and the colour suits her well.
Queen Margrethe and Princess Benedikte were also joined by their first cousin Count Ingolf of Rosenborg and his wife Sussie, who topped her suit with a small fascinator (see gallery below).
Previously Worn: this hat is new
Back on Wednesday, Queen Margrethe opened an Auguste Rodin exhibition at the Glyptoteket museum in Copenhagen. She repeated her denim blue cloche hat with upturned brim around one side trimmed with a checked tweed hatband and side bow. It’s another fine design- Mathilde Førster’s work certainly suits the Danish queen, doesn’t it? This relatively new pairing of milliner and wearer continues to excite.
These days, any royal hat we see is a welcome one- what do you think about these designs?
