Danish State Visit To Germany Days 2 & 3

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.

  1. Red hat: appears “twee” to me as a result of its smallness; while the contrast between the purple & red is very well calibrated, I would prefer the brim to be a little wider and for there to be no trailing ribbons behind the bow. The overall look, however, makes a suitably striking statement: she is clearly the centre of attention.

    Blue hat: is absolutely gorgeous – so well proportioned & coordinating excellently with her super-elegant and well-chosen ensemble.

  2. I’d like to give a hint to the fact that Munich is the capital of Bavaria, and the colours of Bavaria are blue and white. So Magrethe’s Munich outfit (and the posy she received) is very thoughtful. I love both of the hats. Elegant and sophisticated but not too dominant in a country where ladies (unfortunately) wear hats quite rarely.

  3. I think the blue hat is beautiful on her – lovely shade of blue on her. The red hat is also nice but it seems to pop up quite often. I prefer to see her in hats with brims.
