Prince Joachim and Princess Marie visited to the army school Haerens Sergentskole in Varde on Tuesday. Joachim graduated from the school 30 years ago and his eldestson, Prince Nicolai (second from the right, below), enrolled in the school earlier this month.
The following new millinery designs caught my eye this week:
Very dapper orange, blue and grey plaid newsboy cap from Stetson Europe
Luxurious merlot peachbloom felt fedora with pewter rose hatband detail from Jane Taylor
Natural straw hat with a swooping twist from Munich-based Nicki Marquardt
Love the icy bit of silver trim on this lilac button base percher from Irish milliner Teresa Nugent
Leopard print percher with pheasant feathers from Australian brand Jill and Jack Millinery
Headpiece of pastel foam circles from the creative mind of British milliner Stephen Jones
And from Australian milliner Meg Rafter, a beautiful wide brimmed, cream straw fedora and wide, monochrome Petersham ribbon hatband. Clean, simple, effortless, wearable and so, so chic.
Crown Prince Naruhito, Crown Princess Masako and Princess Aiko travelled to the Imperial family’s seaside home in Shimoda this week for a holiday. Several great photos of the family were taken on the beach (see here, here and here) including this great shot that proves even royal teenagers cringe at their dad’s jokes.
Great photo montage shared by the British royal family this week on the occasion of Princess Anne’s birthday
Queen Margrethe was all smiles on Thursday at her French home, Chateau de Caix, where she welcomed journalists for an annual interview and photocall. This home was well known to be Prince Henrik’s escape and a personal favourite of the couple- as such, these photos on the first summer following his passing feel particularly poignant.

We sign off this week with another breathtaking photograph of nature from the lens of James Ogilvy. Summer weekends are coming to a close- enjoy this one!

On Thursday, members of the Danish Royal Family were on hand for the Royal Hunt at Fredensborg Castle. Prince Henrik wore a natty tweed hunting cap that I thought suited him quite well…
…until I saw the rest of his outfit.
You saw it here first, folks- the latest in Scandinavian camo chic. Here’s a glimpse of Prince Joachim in a super-pinched fedora to calm your eyes.
Outfits and snazzy socks aside, these hats are both rather dapper, aren’t they?

I need to begin with a correction- the sand coloured calot hat worn by Queen Máxima in South Korea earlier this week seen at the right was not made by Fabienne Delvigne, as I originally reported. My apologies for this miscommunication.
