On the second day of the Danish state visit to Germany, Queen Margrethe had a busy schedule of events in Berlin including he signing ceremony for the Memorandum of Understanding between the Documentation Center Foundation Flight, Expulsion, Reconciliation and the Vardemuseerne and visits to Literaturhaus and Pierre Boulez Saal.
For these events, the Danish queen repeated her sharp fabric covered boater hat with red brim and aubergine crown with slim hatband and small back bow with trailing tails.
The wonderfully contrasting scheme of this design is matched by its proportion- note how the slim hatband links balances with the narrow brim width and slim binding. We see Queen Margrethe in many hats designed to go with a certain ensemble and the streamlined silhouettes of dress, jacket and hat pair so well together.
Today, for a program of events in Munich, Queen Margrethe denim bluehat with upturned brim around one side trimmed with a bias checked tweed hatband and side bow.
The brim curve on this design is so beautifully done, giving the hat presence and movement way beyond its small scale. It’s so very smart.
What do you think of the Danish queen’s hats the past two days in Germany?
