On Monday, Princess Benedikte of Denmark attended the opening of “Mary and the Crown Princesses” at the Koldinghus, an exhibition marking Crown Princess Mary’s 50th birthday that “paints a portrait of the Danish Crown Princess and her four predecessors”. For this event, she wore a new hat with domed plaid crown and cuffed pale fur brim.
Countess Sussie and Count Ingolf of Rosenborg also attended this event, Countess Sussie in an chocolate brimless hat (or open crown headpiece?) with eye-catching twist trim.
On Wednesday, Crown Princess Mary was joined by her two youngest children for a a visit to Copenhagen Zoo to kick off the construction of another exhibit in honor of her milestone birthday, “Mary’s Australian Garden,” an eco facility that will house animal species from Australia. For this visit, Mary wore a casual navy felt fedora trimmed with a burgundy and navy plaid hatband. Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent wore cozy knit winter hats.
The hat is a great scale on Mary and pairs well with her patterned coat to create a casually chic ensemble.
Designer: unknown. Coat is Hobbs London’s Meghan Check Wrap Coat
