followed by the annual balcony appearance at the Royal Palace in Oslo. Queen Sonja wore a new red hat with short, curved brim and rounded bowler crown. The hat is trimmed with an interesting wrapped hatband in ombre dyed orange and dark pink.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit wore a new double layered circular headpiece in what looks like a textured tan fabric. The design looks to tie in a sort of bow around the back, at the nape of her neck.

  1. I didn’t even realize MM had a hat on until you mention it, HQ. The color blends in with her hair so much. I wish she had worn a brighter color. I spy a black headband on Ingrid Alexandra, also. Sonja looks lovely in her new hat and I love the bright, happy colors!

  2. A nice versatile new hat for Sonja; she always looks great in these shades of bright red. No real surprise from Mette-Marit, but the particular color and texture of this headpiece makes it feel very Ace bandage wrap-like unfortunately.

    I do wonder if Haakon’s top hat may be made from satin instead of silk? The sheen feels brighter and smoother compared to Harald’s, which certainly is antique silk. I can’t say for certain either way concerning Haakon’s, but just a thought I had this time; perhaps ChicagoChuck or someone else with more knowledge can weigh in.
