  1. Great turn out of hats in Denmark with THREE red ones for Margrethe. I really think brimmed hats suit her better. My favorite of the entire lot is Benedikte’s blue hat – just fantastic!

  2. A lovely catch up with the Danish Royal ladies.

    My favourite, predictably , is the gorgeous raspberry pink straw hat on Princess Benedikte. The pale teal/blue raffia hat is a beautiful colour too.

    Queen Margrethe’s red boater is great fun.

  3. Two elegant and colorful ensembles on Benedikte! IMO she is severely underrated as a style icon and she is one of my top royals I would love to meet.

    I thought this boater/bolero was new when I first saw it this time on Margrethe. I find the crown shape a bit severe on her, but that jaunty angle is perfect and the outfit is great. Nice to get so many other hat outings for her as well, even if they are all well-loved repeats.
