Catching Up Danish Hats…Again!

We have another handful of hats to catch up on in Denmark!

May 18: Princess Benedikte repeated her navy textured straw hat with wide, upturned brim for the first of a two-day visit to the German island of Sylt. While not visible here, I think the hat is still trimmed with a large grey silk flower, which would link well with the floral skirt in this ensemble.

Designer: unknown. My guess is Susanne Juul
Previously Worn: April 7, 2014; June 26, 2013; July 26, 2012; October 12, 2011

May 19: For the second day of the visit to Sylt, Princess Benedikte repeated her blue raffia with the same additional colourful hatband as she wore to Flensburg on May 17.

Designer: unknown.
Previously Worn: May 17, 2022 Sep 26, 2020

May 20: Queen Margrethe welcomed Princess Beatrix yesterday to celebrate the the 500th anniversary of the Dutch immigration to Store Magleby in Dragør Municipality. For this event, she repeated her her apricot straw hat with navy hatband.

And finally, today Queen Margrethe visited Tivoli amusement park and pleasure garden to mark the 50th anniversary of her accession, a celebration put on hold until now because of the pandemic. She repeated her pink beret with with side twist trim, taking it for a spin on a roller coaster. I think that might be a first for a royal hat!

I’m afraid to say it but… dare I hope we’re back to royal hatted events, as they were pre-pandemic? It’s certainly nice to see events happening again. What do you think of these hats?
